JUST PUBLISHED: "Explorations in New Cinema History: Approaches and Case Studies" (eds: Richard Maltby, Daniel Biltereyst and Philippe Meers)

Short description
Unlike most film studies titles, "Explorations in New Cinema History" is concerned not with film production, but rather with the circulation and reception of cinema. It considers the commercial activities of film exhibition and distribution, the political and legal issues that underpinned them, and the history of cinema's audiences. "Explorations" is rigorously empirical, compiling research of cutting-edge scholars in the form of essays that start long overdue conversations between cinema history and other social science disciplines.
