Genres in American Cinema

Genres in American Cinema examines the significance of American films in a series of single-authored volumes, each dedicated to a different genre from thrillers to science fiction. Each volume provides a comprehensive account of its genre, from enduring classics to contemporary revisions, from marginal appropriations to international inflections, emphasizing both its distinctive qualities as well as its cultural, historical, and critical contexts. The approach is methodologically broad, balancing theoretical and historical discussion with close readings of representative films. The books are intellectually rigorous yet written in a style that is lively and accessible to students and general audiences alike.

General Editor: Barry Keith Grant, Brock University, Ontario, Canada
