About the Author:

JOHN HILL is Professor of Media at Royal Holloway, University of London. He is the author of Sex, Class and Realism: British Cinema 1956–63 (1986), British Cinema in the 1980s (1999) and Cinema and Northern Ireland: Film, Culture and Politics (2006), the co-author of Cinema and Ireland (1987) and the co-editor of various collections, including The Oxford Guide to Film Studies (1998).

Review:

'Not only offers a detailed critical study of virtually Loach's entire output from the now-lost BBC play Catherine (1964) to his most recent feature Route Irish (2010), but also explores the internal and external politics governing their production and reception, in often fascinating detail... [This is] clearly the most important addition to Loach scholarship since Graham Fuller's book-length 1998 interview Loach on Loach.' - Michael Brooke, Sight & Sound
'Hill's definitive study of Loach's television and film production from the mid-1960s to the present combines first-rate primary research with insightful thematic analysis to situate the director and his work within the political, institutional, and artistic contexts that gave the work form.' - CHOICE
