Dear PCA/ACA Members: It's an honor for me to be named book review editor for the Journal of American Culture. As my term begins on January 1, 2013, I look forward to working with you as I identify potential books to be reviewed and appropriate reviewers for the titles I receive from publishers. I have attached a list of books that are currently available for review. If you are interested in reviewing any of these titles, please email me. My contact information is at the end of the email. The Journal of American Culture is interested in reviewing books that are written by members of the American Culture Association and the Popular Culture Association. If you are aware of a book that has been written by an ACA/PCA member but has not been reviewed by the Journal of American Culture, please email me. Again, I look forward to working with you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season.
