Congratulations to Chris Jordan for this much-welcomed text on the vision of American success in Reagan-era movies--one based in a moral and economic conservative agenda and wrapped into films featuring patriarchal family values, interracial buddydom, closely watched borders, vigilance against international terrorism, and yuppie consumerism. These always insightful and multifaceted readings do much to help us understand the complex interplay between popular culture and politics in an era. -Jane Caputi Professor of Women's Studies, Florida Atlantic University ?Examines how Reaganomics influenced the film industry and how conservative ideology was reflected in filmmaking.?-The Chronicle of Higher Education Examines how Reaganomics influenced the film industry and how conservative ideology was reflected in filmmaking. -The Chronicle of Higher Education
