Summary: The American Scene is a book of travel written by Henry James about his trip through the United States in 1904-1905. The American Scene sharply attacked what James saw as the rampant materialism and frayed social structure of turn-of-the-century America. The book has generated controversy. The book still has relevance to such current topics as immigration policy, environmental protection, economic growth, and racial tensions.Edition/Copyright: 10
