Synopsis

Combining the perspectives of 18 international scholars from Europe and the United States with a critical discussion of the role of culture in international relations, this volume introduces recent trends in the study of Culture and International History. It systematically explores the cultural dimension of international history, mapping existing approaches and conceptual lenses for the study of cultural factors and thus hopes to sharpen the awareness for the cultural approach to international history among both American and non-American scholars. Jessica C. E. Gienow-Hecht is Heisenberg fellow teaching in the History Department at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitat Frankfurt am Main. Her study, Transmission Impossible: American Journalism as Cultural Diplomacy in Postwar Germany, 1945-1955, won several awards in diplomatic history. Frank Schumacher is Assistant Professor of North American History at the University of Erfurt, Germany.

He has published articles on 19th and 20th century North American diplomatic, military, cultural and environmental history and is currently at work on his second book entitled The American Way of Empire: the United States and the Quest for Imperial Identity,1880-1920.
