O estímulo do Ministério da Propaganda nazista sob a batuta de Joseph Goebbels resultou na realização de documentários e filmes de ficção que contribuíram para provocar devoção irrestrita a Hitler. Enquanto isso, na América, Roosevelt também estimulou a produção de filmes de propaganda desde 1933. Este livro prova que o cinema hollywoodiano da �Era Roosevelt� apresentava aspectos similares aos que estava sendo feito pelos alemães. Dos dois lados havia o propósito de angariar adeptos para as respectivas causas.
A comparação feita neste alentado estudo vai de 1933 a 1945, período em que Hitler, na Alemanha, e Roosevelt, na América, introduziram mudanças políticas nos respectivos países que, apesar de distintas, se orientavam por uma nova concepção do papel do Estado. Assim, as produções cinematográficas alemãs e americanas do período são significativas para a compreensão das ideologias que orientaram esses governos.
A filmografia de propaganda nazista é conhecida nos dias de hoje, bem como os filmes relacionados à Segunda Guerra Mundial feitos nos EUA na mesma época. No entanto, comparar o cinema hollywoodiano com o cinema nazista não deixou de ser uma ousadia, ainda mais quando feita por historiador brasileiro. Desta forma, este livro passa se tornar um clássico obrigatório na extensa lista estudos sobre o nazismo
