Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Any academic library that has students that might get the merest whiff of cinema as part of their curriculum should ensure this work is available to them.”  (Reference Reviews, 1 December 2012)

"[T]he carefully constructed essays in [this volume] contribute to elevating this reference book so much more than its component parts could have achieved - much like German cinema itself. It is a volume that contributes significantly to reference works on German cinema, European cinema, and cinematic history. Any academic library that has students that might get the merest whiff of cinema as part of their curriculum should ensure this work is available to them."

- Matt Borg, Sheffield Hallam University, Reference Reviews

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“A Companion to German Cinema represents the cutting edge of German cinema studies that will force scholars to rethink their approach to the subject. Conceptually innovative and theoretically rigorous, the collection convincingly claims that the renewal of the field must occur from its margins.” — Roy Grundmann, Boston University

“This book is meant to re-envision what has been little seen, unsettle your thinking about German cinema and visual culture, and examine German cinema’s socially transformative potential.” — Dora Apel, Wayne State University

“Combining a path-breaking exploration of German cinema beyond the canon with a serious contribution to theories of nation and transnationalism, this collection is a much-needed addition to European film scholarship.” — Rosalind Galt, University of Sussex
