The new edition of this popular text explores the relationship between American politics and films of all types from comedies and dramas to biographies and documentaries. A new chapter covering 2000 to 2013 updates the decade-by-decade survey of politics in films from Birth of a Nation to The Wolf of Wall Street. This edition also considers recent developments in the nexus between film and politics, such as the Citizens United Supreme Court decision and the heated objections by senior politicians to the controversial film Zero Dark Thirty. The authors provide a framework that readers can use to analyze the political content of films, film technique, and political messaging. They analyze the effects of real-world politics on Hollywood and how various film techniques are used for messaging in political films. An entirely new topical chapter covering the resurgence of the apocalyptic and disaster film genre has been added to the Second Edition, along with new coverage of Iraq-Afghan war movies, and updated chapters on race, political documentaries, and women in political films. A guide to the most current web-based film resources and a political filmography complete this indispensable overview for researchers, students, and instructors of film studies. An online Instructor's Manual with discussion questions is available to adopters.
