American Politics in Hollywood Film


From high-power celebrity endorsements to Governor Schwarzenegger's political win, Hollywood and politics have never been more intimate. As political film-making continues to explode in America, American Politics in Hollywood Film provides contemporary insight and analysis into the relationship between these tw0o powerful institutions.

Exploring the strength and consequences of this association, the new edition of this staple course book has detailed coverage of the past ten years, including insight on TV series, films, and documentaries like The West Wing, 24, Man of the Year, W, Farenheit 9/11, and Why We Fight, as well as election films and bio-pics. By drawing on these examples, Scott demonstrates how Hollywood is influenced by politics and how television and film play an increasingly important role in American politics.
