Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
This excellent collection of essays insightfully analyzes most of the important films about the Civil War. Moreover, it sheds new light on the evolution of American attitudes toward the Civil War and its significance. (John G. Cawelti, author of Adventure, Mystery, and Romance: Formula Stories as Art and Popular Culture)
Douglas Brode, Shea Brode, and Cynthia Miller’s The American Civil War on Film and TV: Blue and Gray in Black and White and Color not only offers a great study of a specific genre of popular film and television, it is also highly informative about the popular culture reception of one of the great, turbulent times in American history. This book is a ‘must have’ for anyone interested in the Civil War or in popular film and television. It is both discerning and entertaining. (Gary Hoppenstand, Michigan State University)
