Mixing political and film analysis with exclusive interviews with Hollywood movers and shakers, Ben Dickenson dissects the social context of the last twenty-five years, from Reagan's Presidency to George W. Bush. He uncovers significant political realignments in the movie industry, in its aesthetic values and in the make-up of Hollywood talent and traces how successive presidents and globalization have opened the way for the anti-globalization movement in Hollywood, which in turn has led to changes in film output. The book brings the story of Hollywood radicalism up to and through the 2004 Presidential election.

About the Author:

Ben Dickenson writes about film for many publications and has a Master's degree in Film and Television from the University of Westminster, London.

Review:

""Addresses one of the central concerns of media studies: how much latitude do creative people have to influence the political content of films in the corporate and commercial environment of Holloywood. Dickenson has done the hard work of exploring this issue in detail, and the result is a terrific book, full of insight and intelligence.""--Robert W. McChesney author, The Problem of th eMedia, and Professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
""Most Hollywood performers with progressive politics are anti-war or anti-globalization. Here's a book that explains how the industry we're in really works and how some of us try to get a human message through the system. Without question an enjoyable and stimulating read."" --Ed Asner

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Annotated edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Provides an up-to-date, insightful take on modern American cinema s relations with, and influence on Reagan s, Clinton s and both Bush s administrations. George W.Bush, Clinton and Ronald Reagan s relations are revealed with radical celebrities like Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon and Warren Beatty. It contains unique behind the scenes stories and exclusive, revealing interviews with Hollywood celebrities. Described by Tony Garnett as an ambitious and refreshing book , Hollywood s New Radicalism is a timely and contentious account of the last twenty-five years of American cinema. Ben Dickenson tells the story of the corporate take-over of the movies in the 1970s, and the subsequent transformation of Hollywood into the dominant force in the global media industry. Writing from the intersection where politics, society and cinema meet, and using exclusive interviews with Hollywood personalities, he explores the radicalising effect of such changes on liberal filmmakers like Warren Beatty, Michael Moore and Sean Penn in the past decade. He demonstrates how left-wing messages smuggled their way into 1980s movies, found a fuller voice in independent American cinema during the 1990s and flirted with mainstream popularity at the start of the new millennium. Bringing the story up to and through the 2004 Presidential election, he reveals how important Hollywood figures have become key members of a vigorous left - wing opposition to George W. Bush s Presidency. Seller Inventory # AA79781845111038
