"America on Film: Representing Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality in the Movies" is a lively introduction to issues of diversity as represented within the American cinema. The first synthetic and historical text of its kind, "America on Film" provides a comprehensive overview of the industrial, socio-cultural, and aesthetic factors that contribute to cinematic representations of race, class, gender, and sexuality. The volume chronicles the cinematic history of various cultural groups, examines forces and institutions of bias, and stimulates discussion about the relationship between film and American national culture.Accessible and user-friendly, "America on Film" features 101 illustrations, a glossary of key terms, questions for discussion, and lists for further reading and further viewing. The book is organized within a broad historical framework, with specific theoretical concepts - including film genre, auteurism, cultural studies, Orientalism, the "male gaze," feminism, and queer theory - integrated throughout. Each individual chapter features a concise overview of the topic at hand, a discussion of representative films, figures, and movements, and an in-depth analysis of a single film, including "The Lion King", "The Jazz Singer", "Smoke Signals", "The Grapes of Wrath", and "The Celluloid Closet".
