The American Circus The American Circus The circus is a source of nostalgia for Americans of all ages, either from memories of attending P. T. Barnum's Greatest Show on Earth, or through the colorful evocations in many movies, television programs, and books. Interest in the circus phenomenon is unflagging, yet there have been few publications that look closely at how the circus's European origins were refashioned for an American audience. Lavishly illustrated and carefully researched, this volume explores how American culture, values, demography, and business practices altered the fundamental nature of the European circus, and how, by the end of the 19th century, they had transformed it into a distinctly American past time.
