Cinema and the Swastika is the very first publication to bring together
comparative research on the international expansion of the Third Reich
cinema. This volume investigates various attempts to economically,
politically and culturally infiltrate the film industries of 20 countries or
regions Nazi Germany occupied, befriended or entertained 'neutral'
relationships with. Countries and regions covered included Western and
Central Europe, Italy, Japan, Scandinavia, Spain, the South Americas, the
USA and (in a new chapter for the paperback edition) the occupied Eastern
Territories (Soviet Union, Baltic States and Poland). The book also features
assessments of the International Film Chamber, through which propaganda
minister Goebbels tried to take lead of the 'Film Europe' movement, and of
Hispano Film, through which German cinema tried to conquer Spanish markets.
Cinema and the Swastika includes contributions from internationally
acclaimed specialists. The hardback version of this book, which has been
revised for this paperback edition, was enthusiastically received and won
the 2007 Willy Haas Award for books on German cinema.
