Hollywood Wars: How Insiders Gained And Maintain Control over the Film Industry Paperback – January 2, 2007
From the Publisher
"I confess I was a skeptic when I first saw the proposal for this book. But Cones' evidence is overwhelming. Every filmmaker, actor and screenwriter should read this book, which also is ideal for college courses in film studies and critical and cultural studies." --Dr. David Demers, associate professor of communication and publisher

The fact that high profile artists such as: Jack Nicholson, Sean Connery, James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jane Fonda, Katharine Hepburn, Jerry Goldsmith, Marlon Brando, Mel Gibson, Frank Capra, Sigourney Weaver, Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, Wesley Snipes, Peter Jackson, etc. (this list is by no means complete) have taken legal action (in one way or another) towards the major studios and its agents, clearly illustrates that there is more politics and smoke-filled room talks in Hollywood than there is in Washington!
John Cones has done a superb job at exposing the Hollywood machine; backed by an extensive list of references/sources which are difficult to refute.
To summarize this book in two words: Excellent journalism!
