Americanisation--the cultural, political and economic influence of the USA--has played an important role in the shaping of modern Europe. This has been the case since the 19th century, when new and old worlds were negotiating fundamental issues such as race and empire, to the 20th century, when mass media communications intensified and reconfigured the transatlantic relationship. Developments since the Cold War, including the September 11th attacks and the Second Gulf War, have made this process ever more globally complex, contested and relevant. Sections of the book's 17 chapters: * Theory * Histories * Cultural geographies * Literary narratives * Mass media * Visual and material culture.
