Book Description

Examining images of gender and violence, this book analyzes selected works of three influential artists of the Irish cinema--Ford, Sheridan and Greengrass--whose careers, taken together, span the period from 1939 to the present. These three directors explore fundamental questions about identity, patriarchy and violence within Irish and Irish-American contexts, and in the process upset conventional notions of masculine authority. Furthermore, Ford's later films interestingly depart from the egalitarian ideals that distinguish his pre-World War II films.

Editorial Reviews


"Perhaps the best thing about Moser's book is that, unlike most . . . writing [on film] acknowledging the existence of political reality, it has a positive, constructive attitude.
The well-written Pugilists and Peacemakers is an entertaining academic discourse that will engage readers interested in a study that integrates film and political struggle." -- Glenn Erickson, film historian and critic
