From Library Journal:

Sensing the wide-ranging effect of movies on American life, the Office of War Information (OWI), beginning in mid-1942, "advised" Hollywood on the types and content of movies that would best "help win the war." In this exhaustively researched volume, the authors dig into OWI records to reveal the propaganda agency's influence and ideology, infighting with other government agencies, and relationships with studio executives and creative personnel. Chapters are devoted to production histories and examination of films about our allies, our enemies, and homefront life, especially domestic politics, racism, and the depiction of women. Thoroughly thought out and well written, this is an important, ground-breaking work about the influence of government on mass media. David Bartholomew, NYPL
