Overview

From the beginnings of cinema through the first boom in the specialized moving-picture theaters known as nickelodeons, The Emergence of Cinema looks at the first twelve years of projected motion pictures and their aural accompaniment. Early American cinema is examined as an industry and as an influential cultural practice in the context of a centuries-long history of projected images.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The History of the American cinema will be a ten-volume series, chronicling not only the history of the art form, but also cinema's impact as a cultural beacon, a business enterprise, and a technological feat. The first three volumes (see also following entries) initiate the series in a big way, offering a thorough (and thoroughly illustrated) survey of the silent era. Volume one discusses antecedents and the initial twelve years of cinema as a business and an art form within a context of European technological roots. This volume also presents original research on many inventions and practices creating the booming business. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
