The book undertakes a detailed analysis of key literary and filmic texts situated within consideration of specific contexts.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a highly engaging read, full of great ideas and interesting connections. Each chapter has a well-chosen focus, and together they amount to the definitive scholarly commentary on the genre and its cultural significance. The book's readability and its breadth even within its tight focus in terms of genre means it will be widely used in film studies, cultural studies, literature, American studies, cultural geography, and beyond.' - David Bell, University of Leeds, UK
