"Schroeder examines how the film transformed Hong Kong action cinema from the 1980s to the present, which resulted in its rise as a dominant transnational style in close affiliation with the transformation of Hollywood cinema into a digital technology driven global enterprise." -- BACK COVER
Strategies of cinema : cultural politics in the New Hollywood, 1967-1981 by Andrew Schroeder( )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation describes and criticizes the emergence of the cultural Left in Hollywood by encircling it and envisioning it from three different but interrelated standpoints. Each of my chapters tells a linear story based on new forms of industrial and political agency in Hollywood, yet each chapter also covers the same period of time. The dissertation thus follows an essentially non-linear form. Chapter 1 details the BBS company and its struggle to invent a new role for independent companies in Hollywood alongside new ideas about a cultural Left with mainstream influence. Chapter 2 builds that story through the career of Jane Fonda. She, I argue, is an invaluable precursor to an unfulfilled politics of the popular image because of her attempted merger between the identity politics of celebrity and the range of emergent identity movements in the culture at large. Chapter 3 dissects the concept of the "auteur" by arguing that it functioned like a mask or camouflage for the production of radical cinema with Hollywood financing. Recounting the linked production histories of the radical auteurs Haskell Wexler, Bernardo Bertolucci and Warren Beatty, I argue that "auteurism" forms a horizon of possibility for contemporary radical imaginations. Despite its empirical "untruth," auteurism remains a concept that must be used strategically to advance the project of the next cultural Left
