Murder on the reservation : American Indian crime fiction : aims and achievements by Ray B Browne( )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Murder on the Reservation, Ray B. Browne surveys the work of several of the best-known writers of crime fiction involving Indian characters and references virtually every book that qualifies as an Indian-related mystery. He places this genre within the tradition of crime fiction in general, a powerful democratizing force in American society. All people are equal under the horizontal barrel of the loaded gun, and Indians are increasingly playing an important role. Some of this Indian fiction is intended to right the wrongs the authors feel have been leveled against Indians - paying back as they call it. Other authors use Indian lore and Indian locales as exotic elements and locations for the entertaining and commercially successful stories they want to write
The detective as historian : history and art in historical crime fiction by Ray B Browne( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The crime fiction examined here covers virtually all of recorded history - from ancient Egypt through classical Greece and Rome; from medieval Europe through nineteenth-century England and America. The essays in this collection analyze and evaluate these works and demonstrate that they are not only gripping stories in their own right, but also the nerve center for historians of all stripes - from the professional to the most casual minded - to learn about past societies. People of the past appear with all their pretenses down and their acts of violence laid bare."--Jacket

Hollywood as historian : American film in a cultural context by Peter C Rollins( )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Motion picture images have influenced the American mind since the earliest days of film, and many thoughtful people are becoming ever more concerned about that influence, as about the pervasive influence of television. In eras of economic instability and international conflict, the film industry has not hesitated to use motion pictures for definite propaganda purposes. During less troubled times, the American citizen's ability to deal with political and social issues has been enhanced or thwarted by images absorbed in the nation's theatres. Hollywood As Historian tracks the interaction of Ame
