    Nach dem Erdbeben von Lissabon 1755 gerät der christliche Glaube in eine schwere Krise.

  • "Have You Seen . . . ?"by David Thomson

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 29.95

    In 1975, David Thomson published his Biographical Dictionary of Film, and few film books have enjoyed better press or such steady sales.

Juxtaposing the fanciful and... more...

  • 'Have You Seen...?'by David Thomson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2008; Not Available

    This is possibly the most entertaining, surprising and enjoyable film book ever written. Thomson set himself the near-foolhardy task of writing one page each on 1000 of the films that he has particularly liked ? or in some cases, abhorred. Some half-million words of funny, vigorous, wayward prose later, we are all the happy beneficiaries of his deranged... more...

  • 'Un-American' Hollywoodby Peter Stanfield; Frank Krutnik; Brian Neve; Steve Neale

    Rutgers University Press 2007; US$ 27.95

    The concept of "un-Americanism," so vital to the HUAC crusade of the 1940s and 1950s, was resoundingly revived in the emotional rhetoric that followed the September 11th terrorist attacks. Today's political and cultural climate makes it more crucial than ever to come to terms with the consequences of this earlier period of repression... more...

  • "Yippee Ki-Yay Moviegoer"by Vern
