Saturday Night Live and American TV
Edited by Nick Marx, Matt Sienkiewicz, and Ron Becker

"For SNL fans, 'Saturday Night Live' and American TV is an engaging
analysis that places the show in a larger context of modern media studies,
exploring SNL's impact on the cultural landscape both as a satiric
reflection and surreptitious political peacemaker. The editors have
compiled a thorough and often surprising volume that explores every part
of the SNL machine as well as the many advances it's made in the last ten
years. A must-have on the SNL lover's bookshelf." ‹Megh Wright,

Orson Welles in Italy
Alberto Anile
Translated by Marcus Perryman

"Orson Welles in Italy recounts, in detail and with great panache, not the
beginnings of the myth of the slipping career but its first full
development. . . . The most interesting aspect of the book perhaps is its
account of Welles¹s critical reputation in Italy, the way he managed to
disappoint and annoy authoritative judges on the right and the left,
neither side being ready for what were seen as American excesses of visual
style. Meanwhile, back home, Welles was increasingly suspected of engaging
in un-American activities." ‹New York Review of Books

Locating the Moving Image
New Approaches to Film and Place
Edited by Julia Hallam and Les Roberts

"This collection breaks new ground for cinema history. Hallam and Roberts
have gathered some of the foremost scholars who are mapping spatial
histories of the moving image and the geographies of film production,
distribution and consumption. Introducing new interdisciplinary methods
and asking new questions, Locating the Moving Image takes film studies
into new territory, beyond the boundaries of the text and its
interpretation, towards an understanding of the relationship between
culture, spatiality and place." ‹Richard Maltby, Matthew Flinders
