    Matthew Alford completed his doctorate at Bath University on US Cinema and Politics in 2007. He also holds a Masters degree from Birmingham University and currently lectures in the Drama, Theatre, Film, and Television department of Bristol University. Reel Power is the first book to examine the internal workings of contemporary Hollywood as a politicised industry as well as scores of films across all genres. No matter what the progressive impulses of some celebrities and artists, Alford shows how they are part of a system that is hard-wired to encourage American global supremacy and frequently the use of state violence.
