Blue-collar Hollywood : liberalism, democracy, and working people in American film by John E Bodnar( )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 1,837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Blue-Collar Hollywood, John Bodnar examines the ways in which popular American films made between the 1930s and the 1980s depicted working-class characters, comparing these cinematic representations with the aspirations of ordinary Americans and the promises made to them by the country's political elites. Based on close and imaginative viewings of dozens of films from every genre - among them Public Enemy, Black Fury, Baby Face, The Grapes of Wrath, It's a Wonderful Life, I Married a Communist, A Streetcar Named Desire, Peyton Place, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Coal Miner's Daughter, and Boyz N the Hood - this book explores such topics as the role of censorship, attitudes toward labor unions and worker militancy, racism, the place of women in the workforce and society, communism and the Hollywood blacklist, and faith in liberal democracy."--Jacket
Remaking America : public memory, commemoration, and patriotism in the twentieth century by John E Bodnar( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a compelling inquiry into public events ranging from the building of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial through ethnic community fairs to pioneer celebrations, John Bodnar explores the stories, ideas, and symbols behind American commemorations over the last century. Such forms of historical consciousness, he argues, do not necessarily preserve the past but rather address serious political matters in the present.--Publisher description
The "Good War" in American memory by John E Bodnar( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"2003 Outstanding Academic Title, Choice" ""An uncommonly well balanced account of the political biases of American movies ... A fine read for the generalist yet a scholarly achievement."--Choice" ""You cannot but be seduced and even sometimes bedazzled by Bodnar's clear, well-informed and impartial analysis."--Cercles" ""Bodnar provides a useful provocation. He asks us to think imaginatively about the subtle and complex ways movies communicate ideas and attitudes."--Journal of American History" ""Open minded and even handed, he appreciates the nuances and mixed messages of Hollywood cinema."--American Historical Review" "The "Good War" in American Memory dispels the long-held myth that Americans forged an agreement on why they had to fight in World War II. John Bodnar's sociocultural examination of the vast public debate that took place in the United States over the war's meaning reveals that the idea of the "good war" was highly contested." "Bodnar's comprehensive study of the disagreements that marked the American remembrance of World War II in the six decades following its end draws on an array of sources: fiction and nonfiction, movies, theater, and public monuments. He identifies alternative strands of memory--tragic and brutal versus heroic and virtuous--and reconstructs controversies involving veterans, minorities, and memorials. In building this narrative, Bodnar shows how the idealism of President Franklin Roosevelt's Four Freedoms was lost in the public commemoration of World War II, how the war's memory became intertwined in the larger discussion over American national identity, and how it only came to be known as the "good war" many years after its conclusion."--Jacket

The ethnic experience in Pennsylvania by John E Bodnar( Book )

6 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bonds of affection : Americans define their patriotism( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bonds of Affection looks at the nineteenth century in terms of how leaders of the nation fashioned new forms of patriotic instruction for citizens, how veterans from the North and the South attempted to use patriotic language and symbols to rebuild national unity after the Civil War, and how Americans invented new symbols and transformed labor politics to sustain loyalty in an increasingly diverse society. From the World Wars through Vietnam to the Clinton presidency, this volume assesses a variety of factors influencing patriotism. Exposure to the cultures of foreign enemies caused citizens to reassess ideals of national devotion at home. Wartime celebrations of male warrior heroes provoked both patriotic celebrations of masculine power and opposition to it. Ultimately Bonds of Affection shows that Americans have been able to love their country not only out of a hope for democracy but out of a lust for power and gain as well
