From the Publisher:
<div><div><em>Comic Books and American Cultural History</em> is an anthology that examines the ways in which comic books can be used to understand the history of the United States. Over the last twenty years, there has been a proliferation of book-length works focusing on the history of comic books, but few have investigated how comics can be used as sources for doing American cultural history.</div><div> </div><div>These original essays illustrate ways in which comic books can be used as resources for scholars and teachers.  Part 1 of the book examines comics and graphic novels that demonstrate the techniques of cultural history; the essays in Part 2 use comics and graphic novels as cultural artifacts; the third part of the book studies the concept of historical identity through the 20th century; and the final section focuses on different treatments of contemporary American history. Discussing topics that range from romance comics and Superman to <em>American Flagg! </em>and <em>Ex Machina</em>, this is a vivid collection that will be useful to anyone studying comic books or teaching American history.</div></div>>
