Exploring the central themes in modern American cultural studies and discussing how these themes can be interpreted, American Cultural Studies offers a wide-ranging overview of different aspects of American cultural life such as religion, gender and sexuality, regionalism, and ethnicity and immigration.
The fourth edition has been revised throughout to take into account the developments of the last four years. Updates and revisions include:

- long-form television and American Studies
- up-to-date case studies, such as Girls, The Wire and Orange is the New Black
- more material on Detroit, the Mexican border, same-sex relationships and Islam in America
- updated further reading lists and new follow-up work.
Illustrated throughout, containing follow-up questions and further reading at the end of each chapter, and accompanied by a companion website (www.routledge.com/cw/campbell) providing further study resources, American Cultural Studies is a core text and an accessible guide to the interdisciplinary study of American culture.
