Paul Lauter, an icon of American Studies who has been a primary agent in its transformation and its chief ambassador abroad, offers a wide-ranging collection of essays that demonstrate and reflect on this important and often highly politicized discipline. While American Studies was formerly seen as a wholly subsidiary academic program that loosely combined the study of American history, literature, and art, From Walden Pond to Jurassic Park reveals the evolution of an independent, highly interdisciplinary program with distinctive subjects, methods, and goals that are much different than the traditional academic departments that nurtured it. With anecdote peppered discussions ranging from specific literary texts and movies to the future of higher education and the efficacy of unions, From Walden Pond to Jurassic Park entertains even as it offers a twenty-first century account of how and why Americanists at home and abroad now do what they do. Drawing on his forty-five years of teaching and research as well as his experience as a political activist and a cultural radical, Lauter shows how a multifaceted increase in the United States’ global dominion has infused a particular political urgency into American Studies. With its military and economic influence, its cultural and linguistic reach, the United States is—for better or for worse—too formidable and potent not to be understood clearly and critically.

Twenty-one philosophers join forces to investigate the implications of the Jurassic Park franchise for our lives, our values, and our future. Human beings live and thrive by modifying nature, but when do the risks of changing nature outweigh the likely benefits? If it’s true that “Life will find a way,” should we view any modified or newly reconstituted life as a hazard? The new scientific information we could gain by bringing back T. Rex or other dinosaurs is immense, including greater understanding of biology leading to immeasurable medical benefits, but should we choose to let sleeping dinosaurs lie? And if we do bring them back by reconstituting them from ancient DNA, are they really what they were, or is something missing? If life will find a way, then why isn’t the Dodo still around? How close are we, as a matter of fact, to achieving Jurassic Park? Are we really likely to see reconstituted dinosaurs or other ancient species in the near future? How do the different forces—human curiosity, profitability, and philanthropy—interact to determine what actually happens in such cases? What moral standards should be applied to those who try to bring back lost worlds? If velociraptors could talk, what would they tell us? The idea of bringing back the dead and the powerful is not limited to biological species. It also applies to bringing back old gods, old philosophies, old institutions, and old myths. If revived and once again let loose to walk the Earth, these too may turn out to be more dangerous than we bargained for.

Der Ursprung von Jurassic Park Wyoming, 1875: So wie die Erde unter den donnernden Büffelherden des noch wilden Westens bebt, wird die Welt von der Entdeckung einer noch größeren, viel älteren Naturgewalt erschüttert. Fossile Funde belegen: Einst müssen riesige Urzeitwesen die Erde bevölkert haben - die Dinosaurier. Damit rückt ein wenig beachteter, aber revolutionärer Wissenschaftszweig, die Paläontologie, ins Licht der Öffentlichkeit. Der Roman Dragon Teeth aus dem Nachlass von Michael Crichton, entstanden 1974, darf als einer der ersten Wissenschaftsthriller dieses Ausnahmeautors und Schöpfers von Jurassic Park gelten. Wie alles begann? Mit der legendären lebenslangen Rivalität zweier Wissenschaftler, Charles Marsh und Edward Drinker Cope, die in den 1890er-Jahren danach trachteten, den alleinigen Ruhm für die bedeutsamen Entdeckungen von Dinosaurierfossilien einzuheimsen. Nach dieser wahren Geschichte ersann Crichton einen rasanten Thriller um Gier, Obsession und den Anfang einer neuen Zeit.
