Hollywood and War provides analyses of some of the most important productions constituting the war film genre, and pays particular attention to how the constituent elements of that genre emerged and have been continually reproduced and recast from the Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II, through the Korean War and Vietnam to conflicts in the Gulf and the current war against terrorism. Hollywood and War also discusses the complex institutional relations between Hollywood and the U.S. military, government, and American society.
