Global Hollywood

Front Cover
""Global Hollywood" is an extremely rich book--rich in its research, rich in its critical reflections and insights. . . .Through its political economy framework, Glob"al Hollywood" touches on a vast array of important social and economic phenomena. . . . This book will be important for a number of readers: film historians and theorists, researchers of media history and politics, cultural studies scholars. . . . There are no studies I know of that deal with the range of material in "Global Hollywood" and, moreover, there are certainly none that manage to synthesize and extend existing studies by incorporating them into [such] a strong, coherent, compelling overall argument."--Dana Polan, University of Southern California
"A very acute, at times brilliant, attack on many received notions on both the right and the left. It says much that needed saying, much that we didn't even know or hadn't even thought about. It's the most stimulating book about Hollywood as an industry that I have read."--Ed Buscombe
"A fresh, innovative look at Hollywood's domination of global film markets, Global Hollywood is chock full of valuable material. More importantly, the book represents a challenge to status quo assumptions about Hollywood's international dominance, as well as a political challenge to film and media scholars. A definite must-read for anyone interested in globalization or Hollywood."--Janet Wasko, author of "Hollywood in the Information Age"
