Item description for Encyclopedia of American Cultural and Intellectual History (3 Volume Set) by MacMillan, Mary Kupiec Cayton & Peter W. Williams...
This "Encyclopedia of American Cultural and Intellectual History" surveys the richly layered dimensions of American life in a format that clarifies the many issues, ideas, movements and places that constitute the American experience. How is the West defined as a cultural region? What did the notions of "secession" and "union" mean to Americans living in the 1860s? How does Disney pervade and influence perceptions about America today? In more than 200 articles written by scholars and enriched with illustrations, boxed biographies and documentary excerpts from primary sources, American thought and culture is thoroughly explored. The "Encyclopedia" covers not only historic periods such as the Colonial era and the Reagan era, but also looks at cultural groups such as the working class and cultural institutions and forms such as the university and cinema.
