Book Summary:
Book DescriptionWhite slave films, dramas documenting sex scandals, films of the controversial African American boxer Jack Johnson, The Birth of a Nation --all became objects of public concern after the proliferation of nickelodeons from 1906 had brought moving pictures to a broad mass public. Lee Grieveson draws on extensive original research to examine the controversies over these films and over cinema in general. He situates these contestations in the context of broad regulatory concerns about populations and governance in an early-twentieth-century America grappling with the powerful forces of modernity.
