Docu-Fictions of War: U.S. Interventionism in Film and Literature (Hardback)Tatiana Prorokova (author)
- We can order this
Docu-Fictions of War analyzes how these representational narratives have highlighted a humanitarian rationale behind American involvement in each war, whether the stated goals were to free the oppressed from tyranny, stop genocide, or rid the world of terrorism. The book explores the gap between history-what allegedly happened-and the cultural mythology that is both true and inexact, tangible and sensed, recognized and undocumented.

"Well written, comprehensive in scope, impeccably researched, and both wide ranging and detailed in the critical perspectives it provides. Prorokova does a great job of exploring some very complicated concepts in a fluid, informative yet often dynamic fashion."-Terence McSweeney, author of The "War on Terror" and American Film: 9/11 Frames per Second -- Terence McSweeney
"Prorokova's contribution to this age-old discussion, fraught with ontological and epistemological conundrums, is both fresh and welcome."-Steven Trout, author of On the Battlefield of Memory: The First World War and American Remembrance, 1919-1941 -- Steven Trout
