Riassunto: Bernd Herzogenrath's An American Body Politic is a study of the intersection between the material, biological body and body as political and cultural metaphor in American politics, religion, literature, and popular culture. Deeply influenced by the thought of Gilles Deleuze, Herzogenrath's approach to American culture encompasses endless possibilities and potentials, eschewing the mechanic and structural. He traipses through American history and culture, pausing to examine such varied facets as the Puritans'"two bodies," Anne Hutchinson and the Antinomian Controversy, Cotton Mather and smallpox, the poetics politics of Whitman, Henry Adams's stroll along the shores of complexity, and the Detroit-based techno music of today.

He is the author of An Art of Desire: Reading Paul Auster, and the editor of From Virgin Land to Disney World: Nature and Its Discontents in the USA of Yesterday and Today, The Films of Tod Browning, Deleuze & Ecology, and Edgar G.
