9780415367820: Cinema Studies: The Key Concepts (Routledge Key Guides)

Ranging from Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan to Quentin Tarantino, and from auteur theory to the Hollywood Blockbuster, Cinema Studies: The Key Concepts has firmly established itself as the essential guide for anyone interested in film.

Covering an impressive range of key genres, movements, theories and production terms, this third edition includes a fully updated bibliography, and has been revised and expanded to include new topical entries such as:

  • female masquerade
  • silent cinema
  • exploitation cinema
  • art direction
  • national cinema
  • political cinema.

Authoritative yet accessible, Cinema Studies: The Key Concepts is undoubtedly a must-have guide to what is both a fascinating area of study and arguably the greatest art form of modern times.

Review:

'Key Concepts in Cinema Studies by Susan Hayward must be one of the most useful books ever published on the always expanding subject of cinema studies ... Even if you are familiar with many of the terms you may find it valuable to go through all of them as Hayward's perspective is amazingly thought-provoking and educative.' - Film Waves, of the first edition

'An ideal one-stop encyclopedia for students ... an authoritative and - more importantly - a highly accessible work.' - Film Review, of the first edition

'Indispensable book ... a more rounded aide to undergraduate discussion of cinema.' - Sight and Sound, of the first edition

'It is unquestionably both an extensive and valuable resource on all things cinematic.' - M/C Reviews, Australia, of the first edition

'A useful reference resource... Is it a worthwhile resource for a media library? Yes, of course. It will provide essential background for A Level film and media teachers and more able students.' - Media Education Association Newsletter

'Enthusiastically recommended for students of film, anyone seeking a career in the movie industry, and even seasoned professionals looking for an easy-to-use refresher reference.'  - Wisconsin Bookwatch
