up-to-date case studies, such as Girls, The Wire and Orange is the New Black
more material on Detroit, the Mexican border, same-sex relationships and Islam in America
updated further reading lists and new follow-up work.
Illustrated throughout, containing follow-up questions and further reading at the end of each chapter, and accompanied by a companion website (www.routledge.com/cw/campbell) providing further study resources, American Cultural Studies is a core text and an accessible guide to the interdisciplinary study of American culture.
