Overview

A book to fight the alt-right!
What does a 1956 Western starring John Wayne and a 1976 psychological thriller starring Robert De Niro tell us about America? What if anything did legendary Hollywood film director John Ford and pioneering Martiniquais-French psychiatrist, philosopher, revolutionary, and writer Frantz Fanon have in common? And why has America become so polarized politically in the past eight years following the election of the first African American to the presidency? Andrew Stewart combines film studies, postcolonial analysis, labor history, and political journalism in this book to help understand more clearly why America seems like a tinderbox. His conclusions might shock and surprise but are wholly original.
