Hollywood’s Exploited is an interdisciplinary anthology that provides a compelling analysis of contemporary Hollywood film texts and the larger industry and society in which they develop. This text critically examines how identities are constructed and reinforced through film and includes chapters by Douglas Kellner, Karen, Carl Boggs, and Shirley R. Steinberg.

Edited by Benjamin Frymer, Tony Kashani, Anthony J. Nocella, II, and Richard Van Heertum; with a Foreword by Lawrence Grossberg and Preface by Toby Miller.

“This is an important text that sheds a powerful new light on the exploitation industry we have come to know as Hollywood. It is a book that demands a close reading.”–Peter McLaren, Professor of Urban Schooling, University of California, Los Angeles.
