Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An in-depth glossary that Hayward (French, U. of Exeter) intends to provide students and teachers of film studies, and other people interested in cinema with a useful reference on key theoretical terms and various debates surrounding them. She also provides historical overviews of key genres, film theory, and film movements. The cross-references are extensive. Films and names are each indexed separately from general subjects. No date is noted for the first edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
