Summary: "A brilliant, thoroughly enjoyable work of cultural critique, this book teaches us that interpreting the behemoth of American popular culture does not have to involve a polarized choice between nave celebration and disgusted condemnation. Kooijman takes seemingly exhausted concepts like Americanization and turns them on their head . . . he demonstrates just how flexible the signifiers of Americanness can be when they circulate globally, materializing in surprising forms across film, television, and other popular media.".
