Synopsis : Seeking to rebuild the Russian film industry after its post-Soviet collapse, directors and producers sparked a revival of nationalist and patriotic sentiment by applying Hollywood techniques to themes drawn from Russian history. Unsettled by the government's move toward market capitalism, Russians embraced these historical blockbusters, packing the American-style multiplexes that sprouted across the country. Stephen M. Norris examines the connections among cinema, politics, economics, history, and patriotism in the creation of "blockbuster history" - the adaptation of an American cinematic style to Russian historical epics.

Critique: "Blockbuster History is not merely a study of the appropriation of a Hollywood genre by Russian cinema, but also, and more importantly, an analysis of modern Russia's political conflicts, protest movements, memory and national identity as seen through the prism of film." - Maria Pasholok, Times Literary Supplement, April 2013 "Norris composes a history of post-Soviet cinema in Russia while writing a history of Russian patriotic ideas... Smart, superbly researched, richly contextualized." Serguei Oushakine, author of The Patriotism of Despair: Nation, War, and Loss in Russia "Norris selects films that focus on the Russian past from long ago to the more recent. By situating these films in their political, economic, and social contexts, he paints a fascinating picture of present-day Russia... A superb book." Denise J. Youngblood, author of Russian War Films: On the Cinema Front
