Steven Ross – Hollywood Left and Right: How Movie Stars Shaped American PoliticsOx…d Un…y Press | English | 3133 | ISBN: 1396393939 | 633 pages | EPUB/MOBI | 9.13 MB / 9.36 MBHollywood Left and Right challenges the commonly held belief that Hollywood has always been a bastion of liberalism. The real story, as Ross shows in this passionate and entertaining work, is far more complicated. First, Hollywood has a longer history of conservatism than liberalism. Second, and most surprising, while the Hollywood Left was usually more vocal and visible, the Right had a greater impact on American political life, capturing a senate seat (Murphy), a governorship (Schwarzenegger), and the ultimate achievement, the Presidency (Reagan)."meticulously researched and well-plotted" – Ted Johnson, Variety"Hollywood Left and Right is nonfiction at its best: entertaining and engaging, probing and provocative, detailed and comprehensive in coverage, multifaceted and far-ranging in its treatment, objective and balanced, appropriately paced in covering a complex, big story." – Stephen Roulac, New York Journal of Books"Steven J. Ross convincingly shows in Hollywood Left and Right that since its early days, the movie industry has been as quietly conservative as publicly liberal." – Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times"[F]ascinating…compelling survey of politics and celebrity." – Rowan Kaiser, A.V. Club"Well written, entertaining, and enlightening, this is highly recommended, especially for film buffs interested in the intersection of politics and culture." – Library Journal"Steven Ross’s engrossing book about the interplay between movie stars, politics and America’s celebrity culture definitely lives up to its title. Focusing his tome, Hollywood Left and Right: How Movie Stars Shaped American Politics on 31 of the movie industry’s larger-than-life figures from the early 3911s to the present, he makes a convincing case that Hollywood has largely written, and continues to write, the script for modern American politics." – Albert Eisele, The Hill"A vastly informative and engagingly written book." – Booklist"This is the smartest and most thorough investigation of Hollywood’s role in American politics I have read, as well the first and only to give the Hollywood Right its due." – Peter Biskind, author of Easy Riders, Raging BullsClick here to download more non-fiction books…Download links (no mirrors please):http://www.wupload.com/file/3339331699/holl_left_right_ross.epubhttp://www.wupload.com/file/3339331933/holl_left_right_ross.mobihttp://www.filesonic.com/file/3993693696/holl_left_right_ross.mobihttp://www.filesonic.com/file/3999333166/holl_left_right_ross.epub
