Despite the homogenization of American life, areas of strong regional consciousness still persist in the United States, and there is a growing interest in regionalism among the public and among academics. In response to that interest ten folklorists here describe and interpret a variety of American regional cultures in the twentieth century. Their book is the first to deal specifically with regional culture and the first to employ the perspective of folklore in the study of regional identity and consciousness. The authors range widely over the United States, from the Eastern Shore to the Pacifi

9 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the pivotal decades around the turn of the century, American domestic life underwent dramatic alteration. From backstairs to front stairs, spaces and the activities within them were radically affected by shifts in the larger social and material environments. This volume, while taking account of architecture and decoration, moves us beyond the study of buildings to the study of behaviors, particularly the behaviors of those who peopled the middle-class, single-family, detached American home between 1880 and 1930. The book's contributors study transformations in services (such as home utilities of power, heat, light, water, and waste removal) in servicing (for example, the impact of home appliances such as gas and electric ranges, washing machines, and refrigerators), and in serving (changes in domestic servants' duties, hours of work, racial and ethnic backgrounds). In blending intellectual and home history, these essays both examine and exemplify the perennial American enthusiasm for, as well as anxiety about, the meaning of modernity

Reading the road : U.S. 40 and the American landscape by Thomas J Schlereth( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Part I, the author shows how the extant physical evidence of any American road can be interpreted in a way that illuminates its historical development and contemporary meaning. Part II applies those interpretive techniques to the Indiana section of U.S. 40, focusing on four historical periods: the highway's "National Road" era (1827-49); the time frame of its private highway associations (1850-1925); its resurgence as part of the national numbered highway system (1925-present); and its role since the advent of the Interstate era (1960-present). In Part III, Schlereth reviews the scholarship on American highways, including bibliographical resources that he consulted in his original research as well as new studies published since the book's original appearance
