Original Series Description
This series continues the tradition of Wisconsin leadership in the field of American thought and culture, offering works by distinguished historians and emerging scholars that illuminate and interpret America’s intellectual and cultural history. The focus is on the twentieth and twenty-first century, but work from all periods of American history is represented. The series presents books of intellectual quality that make a significant scholarly contribution while also speaking to the broader community of thoughtful readers. The University of Wisconsin Press is particularly proud to publish this series since Merle Curti, author of the seminal study The Growth of American Thought and a founder of the field of American intellectual history, taught at the University of Wisconsin–Madison from 1942 until his retirement in 1968.
