This book investigates the representation of Indians in Western films and locates this analysis within the context of the larger issue how Indian immigrants are viewed in the West today. Covering a large spectrum of films across several decades, the book conducts its critique by identifying and analyzing those narratives and textual strategies used to propagate an image of Indians that are common to these films. The book combines a critical-cultural perspective with political and social considerations to show how films can play a critical role in shaping public attitudes.
