Críticas:

"A dazzling performance. It supplies conceptual links between phenomena where historians have often sensed a connection without being able to describe it adequately, between the Great Awakening and the Revolution, between Edwards and Emerson, between the Puritan vision of a city on a hill and the 'manifest destiny' of American expansion . . . [Bercovitch] has written intellectual history at the highest level."--Edmund S. Morgan, New York Review of Books "This welcome new edition of The American Jeremiad makes available a major classic of American literary and cultural criticism. In his hard-hitting new preface, Bercovitch usefully reformulates and updates the book's cogent critique of how opposition in America has a way of becoming a celebration of America."--Gerald Graff, former president of the Modern Language Association "The American Jeremiad is by far the finest work in American studies of a generation. The scale and ambition of its agenda--its daring attempt to see the ideology of America whole--is one we have since shied away from, but this new edition, with Bercovitch's incisive, brilliant, and eloquent new preface, will certainly provoke and may well inspire still another generation."--Christopher Looby, University of California at Los Angeles "A truly seminal book. . . . the most illuminating study of the root paradigm of American culture yet written."--Victor Turner, University of Virginia "With Perry Miller--perhaps his only company--Sacvan Bercovitch stands above everyone else as America's cultural and intellectual historian, and this new edition of The American Jeremiad, with its powerfully updated preface, is a striking reminder of that enduring fact."--Frank Lentricchia, Duke University "For more than three decades, Sacvan Bercovitch's work has both charted the most promising path and posed the most profound challenge to the academic project of radical political critique of U.S. literature and culture. So long as 'change we can believe in' amounts, by definition, to 'forms of renewal that confirm the basic tenets of the system, ' as Bercovitch deftly puts it in his new preface to this classic study, The American Jeremiad will remain new and necessary."--Evan Carton, University of Texas at Austin "A deeply learned, revolutionary break with the dominant consensus models from Perry Miller through F. O. Matthiessen, The American Jeremiad rediscovered the prophetic core of American literature and culture, and it demonstrated how fully our national identity has been forged from conflicted narratives of self-examination and redemption. The author's brilliant and searching new preface brings this classic work boldly into the twenty-first century."--Eric J. Sundquist, Johns Hopkins University "Sacvan Bercovitch is a giant in American Studies. This book was his first classic work--and others followed. He stands alongside Perry Miller and F. O. Matthiessen as indispensable figures in our understanding of American civilization."--Cornel West, Princeton University A dazzling performance.

Reseña del editor:

When Sacvan Bercovitch's The American Jeremiad first appeared in 1978, it was hailed as a landmark study of dissent and cultural formation in America, from the Puritans' writings through the major literary works of the antebellum era. For this long-awaited anniversary edition, Bercovitch has written a deeply thoughtful and challenging new preface that reflects on his classic study of the role of the political sermon, or jeremiad, in America from a contemporary perspective, while assessing developments in the field of American studies and the culture at large.

Buchbeschreibung University of Wisconsin Press, Madison, 2012. Softcover. Zustand: New. 290 pages. Softcover. New book. AMERICAN STUDIES. When Sacvan Bercovitch's The American Jeremiad first appeared in 1978, it was hailed as a landmark study of dissent and cultural formation in America, from the Puritans' writings through the major literary works of the antebellum era. For this long-awaited anniversary edition, Bercovitch has written a deeply thoughtful and challenging new preface that reflects on his classic study of the role of the political sermon, or jeremiad, in America from a contemporary perspective, while assessing developments in the field of American studies and the culture at large. Sacvan Bercovitch is the Powell M. Cabot Research Professor of American Literature at Harvard University. A fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he is a former president of the American Studies Association and the general editor of the eight-volume Cambridge History of American Literature. "Sacvan Bercovitch is a giant in American studies. This book was his first classic workÑ and others followed. He stands alongside Perry Miller and F. O. Matthiessen as indispensable figures in our understanding of American civilization." ÑCornel West, Princeton University "A deeply learned, revolutionary break with the dominant consensus models from Perry Miller through F. O. Matthiessen, The American Jeremiad rediscovered the prophetic core of American literature and culture, and it demonstrated how fully our national identity has been forged from conflicted narratives of self-examination and redemption. The author's brilliant and searching new introduction brings this classic work boldly into the twenty-first century."ÑEric J. Sundquist, Johns Hopkins University "A compelling history of evangelical politics from the early 1940s to the late 1990s. SchŠfer's ability to show how the Christian Right combines traditional moral convictions with modern consumerism, as well as his careful discussion of continuities from postwar suburbanization through post-1960s right-wing activism, makes his book a landmark contribution. This one is a gem."ÑMark A. Noll, author of God and Race in American Politics: A Short History "For more than three decades, Sacvan Bercovitch's work has both charted the most promising path and posed the most profound challenge to the academic project of radical political critique of U. S. literature and culture. So long as 'change we can believe in' amounts, by definition, to 'forms of renewal that confirm the basic tenets of the system,' as Bercovitch deftly puts it in his new preface to this classic study, The American Jeremiad will remain new and necessary."
