Review:

""The Incorporation of America" is one of those historical essays that not only illuminate their particular subject matter--in this case, American culture and society in the last half of the nineteenth century--but deepen our understanding of how we might think about the general question of 'culture' itself." --Warren I. Susman, Rutgers University
"This book realizes an ideal often mentioned as the goal of American Studies but seldom achieved: it is a truly 'interdisciplinary' account of American culture at a turning point in our history. Mr. Trachtenberg is not merely a scholar, he is a writer. Reading is a pleasure, not a duty." --Henry Nash Smith, University of California at Berkeley
"This graceful venture in cultural history provides a fresh and stimulating interpretation of American society during the last decades of the nineteenth century." --John M. Blum, Yale University
