This volume offers a concise evaluation of film genre, discussing genre theory and sample analyses of genre films, from the western, science fiction and the musical through to horror, comedy and the thriller. It introduces the topic in an accessible way to entry-level undergraduates, and includes sections on the first principles of studying and understanding 'the idea of genre', genre and popular culture, the narrative and stylistic conventions of specific genres and the relations of genres to culture and history, race, gender, sexuality, class and national identity, and the complex relations between genre and authorship.

Reviews - What do customers think about Film Genre: From Iconography to Ideology (Short Cuts)?

Best bok in the field  Oct 14, 2006
Barry Grant has long been one of the major theorists behind genre criticism in film theory. His most recent work is a crowning achivement to unite the two sides in genre debate. The structuralists agree on the elements of genres such as iconography. The cultural theorists look at themes and ideological implications. Hence iconography is the starting point and ideology is the finish line in genre study. Barry Grant's book is a must read. I recommend it to every film student and any reader interested in film as an artistic medium.
