Over the last thirty years, criticism of the Western has gained in popularity, whilst the genre itself is generally understood to be in terminal decline. The most notable studies have focused on issues relating to historical revisionism, gender, and/or ethnicity. The majority of these tend to regard their primary sources -- the films themselves -- in a negative light. This book offers an alternative view. By offering in-depth studies of films spanning a sixty-five year period, it suggests that such approaches fail to allow for the complex relationship between social change and popular culture, and that Westerns have often reflected varied, even competing narratives of American history, existing as platforms for cultural debate rather than as craven accomplices to dominant ideologies. In short, the Western reveals the complexities and contradictions at the heart of American society, thus the focus of this book is of particular benefit to a reconsideration of Western genre film scholarship.
