Publication Date: 22/11/2013
RRP  $32.95 $30.75
The steady rise of Clint Eastwood?s career parallels a
pressing desire in American society over the past five decades for
a figure and story of purpose, meaning, and redemption. Eastwood
has not only told and filmed that story, he has come to embody it
for many in his public image and film persona. Eastwood responds to
a national yearning for a vision of individual action and
initiative, personal responsibility, and potential for renewal. An
iconic director and star for his westerns, urban thrillers, and
adventure stories, Eastwood has taken film art to new horizons of
meaning in a series of masterpieces that engage the ethical and
moral consciousness of our times, including Unforgiven,
Million Dollar Baby, and Mystic River. He

This timely examination of Clint Eastwood?s oeuvre against
the backdrop of contemporary America will be fascinating reading
for students of film and popular culture, as well as readers with
interests in Eastwood?s work, American film and culture.
