FILM NATION: Hollywood Looks at U.S. History, Revised Edition
By Robert Burgoyne
University of Minnesota Press | 256 pages | 2010
ISBN 978-0-8166-4292-2| paperback| $22.50
ISBN 978-0-8166-4291-5| hardcover | $67.50

Film Nation analyzes films that give shape to the counternarrative 
that has emerged since 9/11-one that challenges the traditional myths 
of the American nation-state. Robert Burgoyne provides innovative 
readings of attempts by such directors as Martin Scorsese, Clint 
Eastwood, and Oliver Stone to visualize historical events that have 
acquired a mythical aura in order to open up the past to the 
contemporary moment.

"Film Nation rewards the reader with a continuous flow of stimulating 
ideas about how to discuss the content of recent history films." 
-Journal of American History

Robert Burgoyne is professor and chair of film studies, University of 
St. Andrews.
