About this book

First published in 1985, The Cinema Book was hailed as a landmark film studies text, presenting in accessible form two decades of intellectual activity on the subject. The second edition (1999) consolidated The Cinema Book's international reputation as the leading guide to film studies. This new edition has been extensively revised, expanded, and updated in response to developments in cinema and cinema studies to include brand new chapters together with original essays and case studies written by leading scholars from around the globe. It provides comprehensive coverage of seven major areas: Hollywood Cinema and Beyond; The Star System; Technologies; World Cinemas; Genre; Authorship and Cinema; and Developments in Theory. New topics include Global Hollywood; Contemporary Women Directors; African-American Cinema; Queer Theory; and Postmodernism and Film. All sections are supported by in-depth analyses of films from the earliest days to the present.
