From the Back Cover:

Alfred Hitchcock is one of the most famous, revered, and widely imitated filmmakers of all time. This companion is the most ambitious and comprehensive volume ever published on the Master of Suspense, considering the full range of his career - from his earliest contributions to other directors' silent films to his uncompleted last film.

Thirty chapters by the world's leading Hitchcock experts cover well-established approaches as well as cutting-edge scholarship and tackle the most puzzling and complex problems in Hitchcock's films and contemporary film studies. Placing Hitchcock and his works in their cultural and intellectual contexts, essays explore the genres with which his work is most closely associated, his relationships with his performers and other leading collaborators, the verbal and visual style of his films, his rise to prominence as the quintessential Hollywood auteur, the ideological and ethical implications of his films, and the enduring legacy he left to filmmakers and audiences alike.

Accessible and yet sophisticated, this companion is essential reading for scholars, film enthusiasts, and anyone interested in this hugely influential filmmaker.

About the Author:

Thomas Leitch is Professor of English at the University of Delaware, where he directs the Film Studies Program. His books include Find the Director and Other Hitchcock Games (1991), The Encyclopedia of Alfred Hitchcock (2002), and, most recently, Film Adaptation and Its Discontents: From Gone with the Wind to The Passion of the Christ (2007).

Leland Poague is Professor of English at Iowa State University.  With Marshall Deutelbaum, he edited A Hitchcock Reader (1986, 2009).  His other books include Another Frank Capra (1994), Howard Hawks (1982), and, with William Cadbury, Film Criticism: A Counter Theory (1982).
