520    America Where? Transatlantic Views of the United States in
       the Twenty-first Century gathers essays by distinguished 
       American Studies scholars from both sides of the Atlantic.
       The articles address changing representations of ‘America’
       in their many and mutual transnational exchanges, both in 
       the Americas and in Europe. Atlanticism, neo-liberalism, 
       transnationalism, borders, racism, prisons, labor, war and
       intercultural relations compose the range of approaches to
       be found in this book. While paying close attention to the
       geopolitical, social, and cultural fabric of the United 
       States as a nation in its intercultural, cross-border time
       -spaces, this work brings to question the location of 
       ‘America’ in our time. How does this ‘America’ – both the 
       material, secular nation in the economic and political 
       world, and the mythical, sacred, and spiritual entity, 
       enormously charged with symbolic power – present itself 
       today in the Western and Eastern Hemispheres? The book’s 
       provisional answer is that the most productive «America» 
       is to be found in the conversations that the cultures of 
       the United States encourage and engage in, both nationally
       and internationally.
