PressestimmenThe premise of this book is commendable. These films the authors consider in depth and write about fairly fully...manageable for both the scholarly and casual reader...extremely useful...a useful starting point for any historian of US feature and mainstream documentary film...an advance on anything previously written on the subject of Russians. They have managed to keep a populist tone in their writing, for which they are to be congratulated and have made their audience aware of many more films than they will ever have the time or inclination to watch themselves. Historical Journal Of Film, Radio, & Television, Vol. 8 ...well-written and wonderfully readable...This is ...an important work for students of twentieth-centruy American history and the history of film... Southern Humanities Review ...Strada and Troper poured over 150 films and their sharp eyes-coupled with scrupulous research and clear, analytical prose-spotted everything...without question, the best reference text available on the subject... Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal
