Oxford Handbook of Film and Media Studies by Robert Kolker
Book DescriptionThe Oxford Handbook of Film and Media Studies is a major new reference work that provides the best single-volume source of original scholarship on the intersection of film and media studies. Comprised of twenty chapters written by experts in their fields, this work presents an authoritative, in-depth, and up-to-date assessment of film and media in the early twenty-first century in the U.S. and abroad. Some essays survey particular issues, such as the changing concept of 'realism' in film. Others look at current media practices, with special attention to new media. There are contributions by industry professionals, presenting an inside look at film and media today. The Handbook deals with issues as wide ranging and pertinent as copyright, globalization, television programming, video game genres, the ideologies of media, and movie going in India. As with other Oxford Handbooks, the contributors cover the field in a comprehensive yet accessible way that is suitable for those wishing to gain a good working knowledge of an area of study and where it's headed.
