    Intellect 2006; US$ 10.00

    Traumatic Encounters brings together film and psychoanalysis in an vibrantly original way.

  • Allegorical Imagesby Michelle Langford

    Intellect 2006; US$ 10.00

    Werner Schroeter is one of the most important and influential directors of the New German Cinema, yet discussion of his films within film theory has been intermittent and un-sustained.

  • American Cinema of the 1980sby Stephen Prince

    Rutgers University Press 2007; US$ 17.00

    During the 1980s, American cinema underwent enormous transformations. Blockbusters like Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., and The Empire Strikes Back grabbed huge revenues for the studios.

  • American Cinema of the 1970sby Lester D. Friedman

    Rutgers University Press 2007; US$ 17.00

    A smug glance at the seventies—the so-called “Me Decade”—unveils a kaleidoscope of big hair, blaring music, and broken politics—all easy targets for satire, cynicism, and ultimately even nostalgia.
