about this item

In this book, author John C. McDowell presents readers with an in-depth look at the Star Wars series of films by George Lucas, challenging the view that the franchise was a promoter of violence and new-conservatism. The four chapters that make up the main body of his text are devoted to Star Wars and mythically sanitized violence, redeeming the Star Wars mythos from the myth of redemptive violence, regendering the patriarchal in Star Wars texts, and Star Wars and the politics of difference. The author is a faculty member of the University of Divinity in Melbourne, Australia. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
