Description

This analysis of nearly 150 movies and television programs considers the influence that war films bring to bear on the socialization of young boys in America. This book considers such issues as major male stereotypes-both positive and negative-in film, the influence of sports as an alternate to mortal combat, why men admire war and value winning so highly, and how war films define manly courage.
