Críticas:

Chapman is a tough-thinking, original writer ... an engaging, excellent piece of work. -- David Lancaster, Film and History fascinating ... Chapman's style is easy and transparent, his cultural history expertly sifted and coherently presented ... Cinema's reach is truly global, and Chapman's comparative survey does ample justice to its magnitude The Times By bringing together often disparate strands of published knowledge into a cohesive synthesis, and by adding his own perceptive observations and analysis, Dr Chapman has conjured up a valuable and unique addition to the literature of world cinema Sesame

Reseña del editor:

The cinema has been the pre-eminent popular art form of the twentieth century. In "Cinemas of the World", James Chapman examines the relationship between film and society in the modern world: film as entertainment medium, film as a reflection of national cultures and preoccupations, film as an instrument of propaganda. He also explores two interrelated issues that have recurred throughout the history of cinema: the economic and cultural hegemony of Hollywood on the one hand, and, on the other, the attempts of film-makers elsewhere to establish indigenous national cinemas drawing on their own cultures and societies. Chapman examines the rise to dominance of Hollywood cinema in the silent and early sound periods. He discusses the characteristic themes of American movies from the Depression to the end of the Cold War especially those found in the western and film noir genres that are often used as vehicles for exploring issues central to us society and politics. He looks at national cinemas in various European countries in the period between the end of the First World War and the end of the Second, which all exhibit the formal and aesthetic properties of modernism. The emergence of the so-called new cinemas' of Europe and the wider world since 1960 are also explored.
