Radical Frontiers in the Spaghetti Western: Politics, Violence and Popular Italian Cinema by Austin Fisher (I.B. Tauris, 2014 reprint)

Radical Frontiers in the Spaghetti Western

Austin Fisher’s Radical Frontiers in the Spaghetti Western focuses primarily on the work of five key directors – Sergio Corbucci, Sergio Sollima, Damiano Damiani, Giulio Petroni and Giulio Questi – who produced Italian Westerns that possessed pointedly political themes. Fisher provides fascinating readings of these films that serve to link their contents and themes to the outlooks of the numerous radical political groups and social movements that were protesting on Italy’s streets during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
