Ken Burns's America
by Gary R. Edgerton '74

Gary R. Edgerton '74 is the author of Ken Burns's America (St. Martin's Press), the first book-length study of the famed documentary filmmaker. Edgerton examines Burns' accomplishments— including The Civil War, Baseball and Jazz—to reveal how Burns has redefined the television documentary. Examining the workings of Burns's production company and his relationship with the Public Broadcasting System, Edgerton argues that Ken Burns is a unique cultural voice. Edgerton is also a co-editor, with Peter C. Rollins, of Television Histories: Shaping Collective Memory in the Media Age (The University Press of Kentucky), which explores the tensions between popular history and professional history.

Chair of the communication and theatre arts department at Old Dominion University, Edgerton is co-editor of Journal of Popular Film and Television. His previous books include In the Eye of the Beholder: Critical Perspectives in Popular Film and Television
