Overview

American Cinema and Hollywood provides a clear and authoritative guide to one of the most important areas of film study. Comprehensive and up-to-date, it looks at the history of American cinema, the emergence of the studio system, the key characteristics of Hollywood films, and Hollywood's relationship with both American society and the world beyond. A team of international experts explains the key concepts and arguments involved in the study of Hollywood while selected "readings" show how different critical perspectives apply to individual films. The volume is enhanced by illustrations throughout and learning aids such as chapter summaries and guides to further reading. Ideal for courses in film and media studies, American Cinema and Hollywood is also essential reading for anyone interested in American cinema.
