Is peace an academic subject? Is it teachable? What answers can Americanists offer? This collection of essays, which grew out of an interdisciplinary conference on "American Studies and Peace", brings together perspectives from political science, history, literary and cultural studies, feminism, education, popular culture, and international studies. In a broad transatlantic dialog - involving scholars from Europe and both Americas, South Africa, and Israel - questions of democracy, language, gender, American values, and authorship are addressed and American Studies as a field is tested as to its potential to make a valid contribution to world peace in a socio-political and humanitarian sense.
