The Oxford History of World Cinema is the most authoritative, up-to-date history of the Cinema ever undertaken. It traces the history of the twentieth-century's most enduringly popular entertainment form, covering all aspects of its development, stars, studios, and cultural impact. The book celebrates and chronicles over one hundred years of diverse achievement from westerns to the New Wave, from animation to the Avant-Garde, and from Hollywood to Hong Kong, with an international team of distinguished film historians telling the story of the major inventions and developments in the cinema business, its institutions, genres, and personnel. Other chapters outline the evolution of national cinemas round the world - the varied and distinctive filmic traditions that have developed alongside Hollywood. Also included are over 140 special inset features on the film-makers and personalities - Garbo and Godard, Keaton and Kurosawa, Bugs Bunny and Bergman - who have had an enduring impact in popular memory and cinematic lore.

With over 300 illustrations, a full bibliography, and an extensive index, The Oxford History of World Cinema is an invaluable and entertaining guide and resource for the student and general reader.

Review:

a richly rewarding, impressively wide-ranging trawl through the medium's first 100 years (Time Out)

an essential guide for all serious cinema enthusiasts (Flicks)

If any new book deserves the gloss of informed and sacred text, it is The Oxford History of World Cinema ... a sound and thorough job in creating something that at least tries to be genuinely definitive. (Independent)

a model of clear editorial organization in which the essays of more than 80 contributors are marshalled into an illuminating mosaic. (The Economist)
