Book Description:

“This vital collection takes us into the vortex of military institutions and explores how they have used cinema to project their power across complex geographies and into hearts and minds. Contributors rethink the cinematic apparatus, uncovering forgotten technologies, unknown exhibition strategies, and secret intelligence operations along the way.”—Lisa Parks, Professor of Comparative Media Studies, MIT

“The modern American military didn’t project only its power around the world. It projected movies, too, and in the process developed audiences, technologies, and narratives that linked imperial progress with motion pictures. This stunning volume shows that the relationship between the movies and the military has shaped the geopolitics of the past 125 years.”—Eric Smoodin, Professor of American Studies and Film Studies, University of California, Davis
