About this Book

Looking for America: The Visual Production of Nation and People is a groundbreaking collection that explores the "visual" in defining the kaleidoscope of American experience and American identity in the 20th century.

  • Includes editorial introductions, suggested readings, a primer on how to "read" an image, and a guide to visual archives and collections
  • Well-illustrated book for those in American Studies and related fields eager to incorporate the visual into their teaching-and telling-of the American story.
