From box office to ballot box: the American political film

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
This is a rather straightforward thematic review of the American political film, those that deal with the practice of politics or explicitly address political issues. Generally focusing on post-World War II productions, Booker (English, U. of Arkansas) reviews the way that mainstream American releases have dealt with politics in their storylines and themes, offering only the most basic of critical commentary. The thematic chapters are devoted to political campaigns, the process of government, communism and McCarthyism, nuclear fear and the Cold war, politics and the media, labor and class, the Vietnam War, and war in the post-Cold War era.
