Shades of Hiawatha : staging Indians, making Americans: 1880-1930 by Alan Trachtenberg( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 848 libraries worldwide
"A century ago, it was U.S. government policy to sever the tribal allegiances of Native Americans, limit their ancient liberties, and coercively prepare them for citizenship. At the same time, millions of new immigrants from Asia and Europe sought freedom in America by means of that same citizenship. In this work, Alan Trachtenberg argues that the two developments were, inevitably, juxtaposed in myriad ways: Indians and immigrants together preoccupied the public imagination, and together changed the idea of what it meant to be American."--BOOK JACKET

Lincoln's smile and other enigmas by Alan Trachtenberg( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
With matchless authority, Trachtenberg moves from the daguerreotypes that entranced Americans from the start (and that Hawthorne made much of in The House of Seven Gables) to literary texts of which he is a peerless interpreter: Howell's novels, Horatio Alger's stories, Huckleberry Finn, the cityscapes of Walt Whitman and Stephen Crane. In his exploration of the ways that nineteenth-and early-twentieth-century writers tried to make sense of the modern American city he also addresses subjects as diverse as Louis Sullivan's Auditorium Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the early works of Lewis Mumford. The celebrated author of Reading American Photographs concludes his important new book with "readings" not only of the photographs of Walker Evans, Wright Morris, and Eugene Smith, but of the city images of film noir
