Literary portrayals, rather than political claims, of ephemeral beings and events are the concern of these US and British scholars. They explore diachronically the importance of ghosts and hauntings to American cultural configurations. Among their topics are the Puritan crisis of subjectivity, Ambrose Bierce, the Ghost Dance, spiritualism, Edith Wharton, Stephen King, and the cultural capital of Witches in Salem.
