The first of three volumes, The Cultural Turn in U.S. History: Past, Present, and Future (University of Chicago Press, February 2009) discusses the genealogy of American cultural history by looking at its origins, adjacent fields, debates, and effects on mass media, public policy, and catastrophic events, ending with how cultural history may evolve.
