About the Author:

Thomas Waugh is Associate Professor of Film Studies at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. His doctoral dissertation at Columbia University was on the work of Joris Ivens, and he has contributed extensively to Jump Cut, Cineaste, Cinema Canada, and The Body Politic. His current book in progress is Hard to Imagine: Gay Male Eroticism in Film and Photography, 1850-1969.

Review:

...Excellent critical introduction....Significant contribution to the ongoing project of a living, critical media culture. (John Greyson, Fuse)

...An absorbing anthology...surveying some of the most exciting and exploratory films and filmmakers involved in the complex history of radical documentaries....Timely and significant. (The Independent Review: A Journal of Political Economy)

At last, an important anthology on the politics and art of making documentary films. In light of the shortage of material published in book form on this crucial subject, Thomas Waugh's edition of twenty-four articles is welcome and needed. (Cineaste)

In addition to providing a masterful introduction, Waugh begins each chapter with succinct, lucid comments.... A valuable contribution to an understanding of documentary film and the rhetoric of social change. (Quarterly Journal Of Speech)

...An ambitious undertaking and a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history and theory of the political documentary. (Susan Ryan, Sightlines)
