From the Publisher"Steven Spielberg's America is a tour de force. Frederick Wasser deftly integrates cultural studies, social history, political economy, and reception studies to illuminate relationships between Spielberg and Hollywood, Spielberg's films and audiences, and globalization and America."
Eileen Meehan, Southern Illinois University Carbondale
"In varied writings, Frederick Wasser has established himself as a trenchant commentator on contemporary movies and the media industry behind them. Now, with his sharp, concise study of Steven Spielberg's complex resonances for America today, Wasser extends his critical reflection in important, new ways. This is a compelling, intelligent take on the director and his social role."
Dana Polan, New York University
"A masterful case study that illuminates aspects of American politics and culture through the work of one filmmaker. Wasser deftly weaves a sophisticated analysis of Spielberg and his films with a provocative look at corporate Hollywood and capitalist America. A great addition to film and media studies."
Janet Wasko, University of Oregon
