A reappraisal of the cultural-political strands that fed into, and emanate from, the Spaghetti Western

About the Author

Austin Fisher is a Senior Lecturer In Film And Television Studies at Bournemouth University.


This collection of essays moves over territory and across borders previously uncharted and undocumented in existing accounts of the Western. In taking paths and routes less travelled, Fisher and his contributors show how rich and diverse the genre is in its many international, national and local guises. This is scholarship of high merit.
