This volume provides an overview of the use of propaganda and bias, and the historical accuracy in more than 350 films and film series. The author chose works that are based on personal stories, or that portray documented historical incidents. The majority of films discussed deal with 19th- and 20th-century events. Organization is by broad topics such as the military, sports, music, race relations, labor, business, politics, and crime. Entries range from about a half-page to two pages. The extensive index includes film titles, actors, and others involved in the filmmaking process, historical characters and events, awards, and more. Film and history students and those researching social and cultural themes will find this a useful resource.—Madeleine G. Wright, New Hampton School, NH
