In this brief supplemental book, Robert Bulman separates high school films into three analytical categories and explores how they reflect America's preoccupation with individualism and its ambivalent feelings about wealth and inequality. By looking at this genre as more than just entertainment, Bulman shows how these films reflect American attitudes toward education, social class, and adolescence. Hollywood Goes to High School can be incorporated into a variety of courses in sociology, education, history, anthropology, American studies, and film studies.
