Heroes and villains

"Mike Alsford introduces us to a whole range of heroic and villainous archetypes on a journey through film, television, comic books and literature. In trying to understand the extremes of hero and villain we are made more aware of our own ethical standards, and given a space in which to explore contemporary concerns over notions of right and wrong, good and bad."--BOOK JACKET
