Written by Ed Sikov, this useful study guide has also been updated, including a new chapter on Horror and Science Fiction. The guide introduces each topic in American Cinema/American Culturewith an explanatory overview written in more informal language than the textbook; suggests screenings and readings; and contains self-tests so students can check their level of learning before taking exams.
