Summary "The Oxford Handbooks are a major new cross-disciplinary initiative from Oxford University Press. Each volume offers a state-of-the-art survey of current thinking and research. Specially commissioned, original essays from leading international figures give critical examination to the progress and direction of debates in vital areas of scholarship. Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with a valuable new tool for understanding a wide range of scholarly approaches toward subjects in the humanities and social sciences. The Oxford Handbook of Film and Media Studiesi is a major new reference work that provides the best single-volume source of original scholarship on the intersection of film and media studies available. Comprised of twenty chapters by leading scholars and industry professionals, this expansive collection yields unique, fresh perspectives on a vast array of topics across these two vibrant fields. Covering film and media in the U.S., Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East, this wide-ranging compendium surveys such topics as the changing concept of "realism" in film, the European political documentary, genre theory, and more. Also exploring recent developments in media studies, with special attention to new media, the Handbook features chapters that thoroughly examine topics as diverse as copyright, globalization, television programming, video game genres, the ideologies of media, and movie-going in India. Comprehensive, current, and in-depth--The Oxford Handbook of Film and Media Studies combines cutting-edge scholarship on cinema and media in their many forms to present an authoritative assessment of developments in the U.S. and abroad."--Publisher's website.
