Summary

"Hollywood" as a concept applies variously to a particular film style, a factory-based mode of film production, a cartel of powerful media institutions, and a national (and increasingly global) "way of seeing." A complex social, cultural, and industrial phenomenon, Hollywood is arguably the single most important site of cultural production over the past century. This collection brings together journal articles, published essays, book chapters, and excerpts, which explore Hollywood as a social, economic, industrial, aesthetic, and political force, and as a complex historical entity.
