The addition of of this title to the growing list in the series is most welcome."
-Bruce A. Austin, Communications Booknotes Quarterly
"Through close textual readings, Gittings' valuable study examines the ways in which Canadian films reflect and refract social forces of their times and address contemporary issues of representation and nation."
-Blain Allan, Queen's University
..."presents a fresh and uncompromising angle on Canadian cultural history while it traces the social implications of its stories on film. What emerges is a close and sympathetic analysis which focuses on the difficulties facing a national industry dominated by its powerful neighbour, the politics of representation internal to a multi-ethnic and multi-racial society, and the positive effects of strategic investment in local stories as well as the indigenisation of international genres."
-Graeme Turner, University of Queensland
