  • Chick Flicksby Suzanne Ferriss; Mallory Young

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 39.95

    From An Affair to Remember to Legally Blonde , "chick flicks" have long been both championed and vilified by women and men, scholars and popular audiences.

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 33.95

    The Persistence of Whiteness investigates the representation and narration of race in contemporary Hollywood cinema.

  • American Iconsby Benedikt Feldges

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    Despite the work that has been done on the power of visual communication in general, and about the social influence of television in particular, television’s relationship with reality is still something of a black box. Even today, the convention that the screen functions as a window on reality structures much of the production and reception of televisual... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

  • The Naked Truthby Kevin S. Sandler

    Rutgers University Press 2007; US$ 28.95

    From parents and teachers to politicians and policymakers, there is a din of voices participating in the debate over how young people are affected by violence, strong language, and explicit sexual activity in films. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) responded to this concern in 1968 when it introduced a classification and rating... more...

  • Armed Forcesby Robert Eberwein

    Rutgers University Press 2007; US$ 27.95

    In war films, the portrayal of deep friendships between men is commonplace. Given the sexually anxious nature of the American imagination, such bonds are often interpreted as carrying a homoerotic subtext. In Armed Forces , Robert Eberwein argues that an expanded conception of masculinity and sexuality is necessary in order to understand... more...

  • Uncanny Bodiesby Robert Spadoni

    University of California Press 2007; US$ 34.95

    In 1931 Universal Pictures released Dracula and Frankenstein, two films that inaugurated the horror genre in Hollywood cinema. These films appeared directly on the heels of Hollywood's transition to sound film. Uncanny Bodies argues that the coming of sound inspired more in these massively influential horror movies than screams, creaking doors,... more...

  • Chinese Documentariesby Yingchi Chu

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    In China, unlike in Western cinema, documentary film, rather than fiction film, has been the dominant mode since 1949. In recent years, documentary TV programmes have experienced a meteoric rise. Arguing that there is a gradual process of 'democratization' in the media, in which documentaries play a significant role, this book discusses various types... more...
