From the candy bar to the cigarette, records to roller coasters, a technological revolution during the last quarter of the nineteenth century precipitated a colossal shift in human consumption and sensual experience. Food, drink, and many other consumer goods came to be mass-produced, bottled, canned, condensed, and distilled, unleashing new and intensified surges of pleasure, delight, thrill—and addiction. In Packaged Pleasures, Gary S. Cross and Robert N. Proctor delve into an uncharted chapter of American history, shedding new light on the origins of modern consumer culture and how technologies have transformed human sensory experience. In the space of only a few decades, junk foods, cigarettes, movies, recorded sound, and thrill rides brought about a revolution in what it means to taste, smell, see, hear, and touch. New techniques of boxing, labeling, and tubing gave consumers virtually unlimited access to pleasures they could simply unwrap and enjoy. Manufacturers generated a seemingly endless stream of sugar-filled, high-fat foods that were delicious but detrimental to health. Mechanically rolled cigarettes entered the market and quickly addicted millions. And many other packaged pleasures dulled or displaced natural and social delights. Yet many of these same new technologies also offered convenient and effective medicines, unprecedented opportunities to enjoy music and the visual arts, and more hygienic, varied, and nutritious food and drink. For better or for worse, sensation became mechanized, commercialized, and, to a large extent, democratized by being made cheap and accessible. Cross and Proctor have delivered an ingeniously constructed history of consumerism and consumer technology that will make us all rethink some of our favorite things.

Ci sono motel, grattacieli, diner, drive-in, fast food, ponti, parchi, battelli a vapore. Ci sono metropoli, ghetti, piccole città e città fantasma. Ci sono treni, taxi gialli e aquile solitarie. Ci sono orsi, orsetti, trote e alligatori. Ci sono toffolette, apple pie, hamburger e hot dog, ziti e zeppole. Ci sono cowboy, telepredicatori, wobblies e flappers, quaccheri e mormoni. Ci sono Peanuts, Simpson, Barbie, nerd, supereroi e ufo. Ci sono i re Elvis e Michael, Charlie Parker, Dolly Parton e Billie Holiday. Ci sono Hollywood e Broadway, Dallas e E.R., Walker Evans e Edward Hopper, Dean Moriarty, Huck Finn, Gatsby, Achab e Rossella. E poi femministe tenaci, capi tribù, intellettuali radical, esploratori coraggiosi, scienziati visionari... Ma anche ammutinamenti di schiavi, massacri di indiani, battaglie coloniali, guerre sanguinose, lotte operaie, movimenti di protesta, scandali politici, armi, stragi, catastrofi ambientali. L’avete riconosciuta? È l’America che avete sognato nei film, letto nei romanzi, ascoltato nel rock e nel blues, amato di un amore totale oppure odiato senza riserve: l’avete vista, fotografata, perduta, ritrovata. È l’America delle grandi città, certo, ma anche delle isole, dei luoghi isolati e sperduti, delle «cinture» della Bibbia e del cotone, delle aree postindustriali e postminerarie. È l’America dei deserti e del Mississippi, delle praterie e della Silicon Valley, della Route 66 e di Roswell, delle frontiere di ieri e di oggi. Ma poi, che cos’è l’«America»? Da che parte sta? A queste domande cerca di rispondere «Americana», dizionario atipico di più di trecento voci a stelle e strisce. Non per tracciare un’impossibile cartografia definitiva degli Stati Uniti, non per «dire tutto» sull’America, ma per cogliere e interpretare l’affascinante, e a volte disturbante, complessità di un paese-mondo, attraverso storie note e meno note, singolari ed emblematiche, reali e mitiche.

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.
