From the Back Cover:

This unique volume presents a comprehensive reference guide to directors who have worked in the British and Irish film industries between 1895 and 2005.

Engaging with the entire history of British and Irish cinema, the book encompasses filmmakers from Charlie Chaplin to Lynne Ramsey, directors who worked in the mainstream and those who worked in the independent sector; those who are associated with the heyday of British cinema - Asquith, Powell and Pressburger, Mackendrick and Korda - or with the heady years of the 60s and 70s - Ken Russell, Nic Roeg, Derek Jarmen and Stanley Kubrick - as well as addressing contemporary film-makers such as Nick Broomfield, Mike Figgis, Antonia Bird and Anthony Minghela. The books is packed with fascinating facts, critical summaries and invaluable contextualising details. It will be an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in film-making in Britain and Ireland.
