Edited By: Lois Rudnick
Judith Smith
Rachel Lee Rubin

American Identities is a dazzling array of primary documents and critical
essays culled from American history, literature, memoir, and popular
culture that explore major currents and trends in American history from
1945 to the present.

Charts the rich multiplicity of American identities through the different
lenses of race, class, and gender, and shaped by common historical social
processes such as migration, families, work, and war.

Includes editorial introductions for the volume and for each reading, and
study questions for each selection.

Enables students to engage in the history-making process while developing
the skills crucial to interpreting rich and enduring cultural texts.

Accompanied by an instructor's guide containing reading, viewing, and
listening exercises, interview questions, bibliographies, time-lines, and
sample excerpts of students' family histories for course use.
