"Framing America takes an inclusive approach to American art. Along with comprehensive coverage of the canon, it expands and integrates treatment of frequently marginalized groups, while also addressing domestic arts and a range of political and social contexts. This fully revised fourth edition, reorganized in response to readers' suggestions, includes thirty-two chapters now arranged into nine parts, and available in two separate volumes; part openers featuring timelines and introductions that highlight how major events and artistic movements relate chronologically; increased coverage of the lives and work of women, African Americans, and Native Americans; new images--from a sixteenth-century print of the Spanish conquest of the Americas and a seventeenth-century embroidered altar frontal from New France, to nineteenth century American Impressionist landscape paintings and photographic portraits of San Francisco's Chinatown and Civil War battlefields; new review questions at the end of each chapter; instructor resources, including a fully revised test bank, the author's notes on using the book, links to further relevant material, and images for instructors"--

For more than a generation, critics and scholars have been revising and expanding the customary definition of American art. A tradition once assumed to be mainly European and oriented towards painting and sculpture has been enriched by the inclusion of other media such as ceramics, needlework, and illustration, and the work of previously marginalized groups such as Native Americans, African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans. Now, in a brilliant combination of original scholarship and synthesis, Frances Pohl's Framing America provides the first comprehensive survey of this new, enlarged vision of American art. Here are the many strands of North America's history and visual culture: the first contacts of the Spanish with the Aztecs and other Native Americans; the post-Revolutionary definition of nationhood; the visionary feeling for landscape and nature; the images of social and military conflict of the nineteenth century; and the tempering of the twentieth century's heady plunge into modernism by the Depression, World War II, the Cold War, and the culture wars. Framing America's consistent presentation of the resonance between art and history offers a coherent sense of the evolution of a new, generously defined conception of American art. Pohl's account is an adroitly inclusive fusion of many themes. Her discussion of the early definition of nationhood includes the traditional painters of the grand manner, West, Copley, Trumbell, and Stuart. But Stuart's portraits of George Washington, for instance, are also viewed in relation to portrayals of Washington in wood carvings, embroidery, and the vogue for "mourning pictures" after Washington's death, which create a domestic counterpoint to the more institutional portrayals. Pohl's description of the great landscape tradition of Cole, Durand, and Church shows how the optimistic assertion of a sublime sense of the American nation was accompanied by a sense of loss as the nation expanded westward. As our appreciation of the rich cultural diversity of American life has grown, our sense of American artits sources, its motives, its possibilitieshas become more varied too. Fresh and contemporary, Framing America embraces what our history can tell us about our art and what our art can tell us about our past and present. 665 illustrations, 337 in color.

Most issues in American political life are complex and multifaceted, subject to multiple interpretations and points of view. How issues are framed matters enormously for the way they are understood and debated. For example, is affirmative action a just means toward a diverse society, or is it reverse discrimination? Is the war on terror a defense of freedom and liberty, or is it an attack on privacy and other cherished constitutional rights? Bringing together some of the leading researchers in American politics, Framing American Politics explores the roles that interest groups, political elites, and the media play in framing political issues for the mass public. The contributors address some of the most hotly debated foreign and domestic policies in contemporary American life, focusing on both the origins and process of framing and its effects on citizens. In so doing, these scholars clearly demonstrate how frames can both enhance and hinder political participation and understanding.

"Anyone who imagines social lament over divorce to be a very recent phenomenon should read Norma Basch's book, which tells a fascinating set of stories about law and about culture in the United States, from the forging of divorce provision in the Revolutionary era to the moral ambiguities and acknowledged hypocrisies it caused a century later. Tacking between the social facts of rising divorce and the alarmed or enthusiastic commentary on it, Framing American Divorce guides us through the social landscape of nineteenth-century America."—Nancy Cott, author of The Grounding of Modern Feminism "A careful, fascinating study of divorce in nineteenth-century America, which penetrates its legal logic, its diverse passions, and its prurient appeal."—Joyce Appleby, coauthor of Telling the Truth about History "In a pathbreaking study that situates legal history in the larger social and cultural context of nineteenth-century America, Framing American Divorce transforms our understanding of the sexual and social contract that has defined our most intimate relations. Executed with a singular power and persuasiuveness, Basch's narrative is a compelling rereading of the past that has resonance for the present.—Mary C. Kelley, Dartmouth College
