Product Description


""The authors include fascinating information on the influence wielded by British and American political interests in shaping some of the films. This book demonstrates clearly that the symbiosis of cinema and empire is well worth exploring."" --"CHOICE""" ""[A] fascinating and insightful exploration of the empire film...This is film history at its best, produced by scholars with a mastery of these movies, the relevant historical literature, and their sources. The engaging writing makes it accessible to students, while its stimulating analysis makes it relevant to scholars. Its case study approach allows the authors to delve deeply into each film, rather than stringing together a series of superficial observations about all relevant titles in the genre. Its readings of the films, though at times brief, are invariably informed, insightful, and ultimately persuasive."" -- James Burns (Clemson University), "Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television"
