“Heroism and Gender in War Films,” co-edited by Karen A. Ritzenhoff and Jakub Kazecki

“A timely collection of essays, bringing together a cluster of historical and contemporary chartings of unmapped territory in the interface between cinema and representations of war.” — Elisabeth Bronfen, author of Specters of War: Hollywood’s Engagment with Military Conflict

“Filmic constructions of war heroism have a profound impact on public perceptions of conflicts. Here, contributors examine the ways motifs of gender and heroism in war films are used to justify ideological positions, shape the understanding of the military conflicts, support political agendas and institutions, and influence collective memory.”  — The Publisher
