Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The sensual experience generated by the diegetic film allows the comprehension of the narrated event to frame the representation practiced in film. In a similar vein, the historiography of the historical diegetic film transmits its perspective of the historical event it represents to the audience through its sensual experience.Exploring the significance of mainstream film's practice of historical representations, this book focuses on the shift of the historiography of World War II in Hollywood films. Adopting a comparative study, it discusses World War II films made during the Bush administration after 9/11 and those produced during the presidency campaign period of Obama.
