The period is 'book-ended' by the mighty political and cinematic figures of Reagan and Clinton..

Covers a period in which movies have become targets of political rhetoric of 'family values'..

Essays examine cinematic views of key American political institutions - the presidency and electoral process, politically significant places such as New York City and the American South, the promotion of major issues like gender, family and race.
