Reviews

'This collection provides an intellectually rich and varied view of the modern condition of what is arguably cinema's oldest genre. American readers will be especially interested in the transnational understanding of the genre that carries their national myth. The introduction by Marek Paryz is theoretically sophisticated, historically astute, and provides an excellent framework for the collection.' - Richard Slotkin, Olin Professor of American Studies Emeritus, Wesleyan University and author of Gunfighter Nation: The Myth of the Frontier in Twentieth-Century America

'This collection is timely and relevant as the Western genre is always in need of new critical blood particularly in the current context of globalisation and transnationalism. The essays here are buzzing with original thinking and engaging, stimulating writing, which sets it apart from most other books in the field.' - Neil Campbell, Professor and Senior Research Fellow in American Studies, University of Derby and author of Post-Westerns: Cinema, Region, West
