Book Review: Superman: The High Flying History of America's Most Enduring Hero

Supermancover.jpg

Author Larry Tye is not the first person to write about what the popularity of Superman means about our culture. But as Joan Baum says in this review of Tye’s book, there’s always more to learn about Superman’s abiding power.

Joan Baum is a recovering academic from the City University of New York, who spent 25 years teaching literature and writing. She covers all areas of cultural history but particularly enjoys books at the nexus of the humanities and the sciences.
