  Duke University Press is pleased to announce the publication of a new 
book of interest to screen-L subscribers.

Hamid Naficy's /A Social History of Iranian Cinema/ covers the late 
nineteenth century to the early twenty-first and addressing 
documentaries, popular genres, and art films, it explains Iran's 
peculiar cinematic production modes, as well as the role of cinema and 
media in shaping modernity and a modern national identity in Iran. This 
comprehensive social history unfolds across four volumes. Volumes 1 & 2 
are available now and Volumes 3&4 will be available in 2012.

/Volume 1: The Artisanal Era, 1897-1941/ depicts and analyzes the early 
years of Iranian cinema.
/Volume 2: The Industrializing Years, 1941-1978/ spans the period of 
Mohammad Reza Shah's rule, from 1941 until 1978. During this time 
Iranian cinema flourished and became industrialized, at its height 
producing more than ninety films each year.
