About the Author

Marguerite S. Shaffer is assistant professor of American Studies and History at Miami University of Ohio.

Reviews

"Shaffer's book is a welcome, and indeed much needed, contribution to the growing body of literature on tourism in the United States, and even more specifically, on the relationship between tourism and nationalism. The book points to the increasing sophistication with which scholars are approaching the subject."--Scott Zeman, H-Net Review

"See America First is the first comprehensive assessment of tourism and the formation of a twentieth-century American identity. The voyage of discovery is both individual and national, cultural and personal. . . . Shaffer shows how local and regional businesses collaborated to create a national message that a willing nation embraced."--Hal Rothman, University of Nevada-Las Vegas
