Hollywood Goes to High School: Cinema, Schools, and American Culture by Robert C. Bulman



Paperback in Good (G) condition. Pages clean and straight, but has stickers from prior text book sales on cover. Please see our guide to book conditions for more details.

In this brief supplemental book, Robert Bulman separates high school films into three analytical categories and explores how they reflect America's preoccupation with individualism and its ambivalent feelings about wealth and inequality. By looking at this genre as more than just entertainment, Bulman shows how these films reflect American attitudes toward education, social class, and adolescence. Hollywood Goes to High School can be incorporated into a variety of courses in sociology, education, history, anthropology, American studies, and film studies.
