Written by two of the leading scholars in film studies, Film History: An Introduction is a comprehensive, global survey of the medium that covers the development of every genre in film, from drama and comedy to documentary and experimental. As with the authors’ bestselling Film Art: An Introduction (now in its eighth edition), concepts and events are illustrated with frame enlargements taken from the original sources, giving students more realistic points of reference than competing books that rely on publicity stills.

The third edition of Film History is thoroughly updated and includes the first comprehensive overviews of the impact of globalization and digital technology on the cinema. Any serious film scholar–professor, undergraduate, or graduate student–will want to read and keep Film History.

They introduce each chapter with a little background on the major historical and political currents of each period, which really helps to situate the films in their cultural context. I have taught with this text in Critical Film Studies at New York Film Academy, and found it to be a marvelous companion to the course, and a wellspring…

Still Legibile In pretty sad condition but the book is still in tact. Has some water damage and wear but is still legible. Will do for now!

Spin torn It literally looks like someone got a knife and cut the spin of the book and so some pages I have to be really careful with because they are almost torn off. Whoever had this previously definitely did not take good care of it.
