Praise for A History of Film ";The reason why I selected A History of Film over all of the other textbooks has to do with the basic approach of the subject of film as a developing art form while paying careful attention to film genres and history; the organizational structure of the chapters; a clear and AUTHORitative writing style that explains the interconnectivity of film as a global phenomenon; and the use of judiciously selected stills in support of the text. . . . The structure, organization and content of A History of Film is so good that it is, to me, still the standard by which all other film textbooks must be measured."; -Stephen Ambra, New Hampshire Technical Institute ";The text concisely covers all of film history, and its size makes it particularly useful for film history courses taught in a single term. . . . It is typically quite insightful, yet not too dense for motivated introductory students."; -Mark Gallagher, University of Missouri
