An appreciative examination of the New England clambake, Neustadt divides her study into three parts: historical (social, economic, political, regional, and cultural) influences on the clambake; a close focus on the Allen's Neck clambake as a cultural phenomena in its own right; and a critical examination of the central elements of the clambaking tradition--food, ritual, and festival. The author views the clambake as a unique American folk tradition with interesting connections and rich resonances with other aspects of American culture and history.

This provocative history of the largest annual Chinese celebration in the United States—the Chinese New Year parade and beauty pageant in San Francisco—opens a new window onto the evolution of one Chinese American community over the second half of the twentieth century. In a vividly detailed account that incorporates many different voices and perspectives, Chiou-ling Yeh explores the origins of these public events and charts how, from their beginning in 1953, they developed as a result of Chinese business community ties with American culture, business, and politics. What emerges is a fascinating picture of how an ethnic community shaped and was shaped by transnational and national politics, economics, ethnic movements, feminism, and queer activism.

This book represents a major new initiative in the contemporary dialogue between theology and sociology within the specifics of the North American context. Relying on a renewed confidence in the power of biblical and Christian prophetic symbolism, John Coleman proposes an American theology. Far from being an easy accommodation to the American style with its strong tendencies toward the privatization of religion, this is a forceful and comprehensive argument for the public possibilities of the Christian gospel in contemporary American culture.

"Ann Chandonnet's work of 'edible folk life' documents every sort of festival, work party, celebration, and sociable gathering in American history and even up to the present. It ought to inspire us to call up or text friends to get together to do a hard or tedious job, share effort, and then a meal. In fact, she includes a menu for 175 for a barn raising, and a smorgasbord for 500 in case you need some practical advice. And there are recipes, too, and the kind of documentation that warms the historian's heart. Written in a lively fashion with terrific nuggets of lore and fact like the song of lutefisk, Chandonnet's Barn Raisings and Cemetery Cleanings will keep you informed and well fed." -Sandra Oliver, food historian, blogger and journalist
