This text is a collection of essays on American culture at the past turn of the century. Through this book, Carole Stabile provides a historical context within which scholars and students of American culture can interpret and understand the current end-of-the-millennium fever. The essays in this volume make a significant contribution to our understanding of America's love affairs with novelty and the mass media, and they also show that neither the current communications revolution nor the response to it is unprecedented.
