Americanizing Britain anatomizes the various ways British writers responded to the ever-increasing influence of U.S. culture on England and the rest of the world.



At the same time, British anxieties about American influence contributed to conceptions of Britain's imperial scope, and what it meant to have or be an empire. Through its treatment of a wide range of authors and cultural phenomena, the book explores how Britain reinvented itself in relation to its ideas of America, and how Britain's literary modernism developed and changed through this reinvention.
