Hollywood, Westerns And The 1930S


For the first time, this book tells the 'lost' story of the 1930s Western. Written from a concern to understand Western films primarily as products of Hollywood's studio system, it recovers the context in which Westerns were produced, exhibited and viewed in the 1930s.

Narratives And Spaces

This is a significant contribution to American cultural history, and like David Nye's previous books, is written to be accessible to a wide audience.
