A New History of Documentary Film Second Edition

McLane, Betsy A.
The book has been covered in contact, and the front cover is lightly bumped at the edge, it also has a bar code, obliterated with black texta, on its tail.; there is a cancelled stamp on the front end paper, a small library one on the title page and a location one on the back end paper, else the book appears unread. A clean, and apart from the library stamps, unmarked copy in solid binding. 428 pages, indexed and illustrated. "A New History of Documentary Film, Second Edition offers a much-needed resource, considering the very rapid changes taking place within documentary media. Building upon the best-selling 2005 edition, Betsy McLane keeps the same chronological examination, factual reliability, ease of use and accessible prose style as before, while also weaving three new threads - Experimental Documentary, Visual Anthropology and Environmental/Nature Films - into the discussion. She provides emphasis on archival and preservation history, present practices, and future needs for documentaries. Along with preservation information, specific problems of copyright and fair use, as they relate to documentary, are considered. Finally, A History of Documentary Film retains and updates the recommended readings and important films and the end of each chapter from the first edition, including the bibliography and appendices. Impossible to talk learnedly about documentary film without an audio-visual component, a companion website will increase its depth of information and overall usefulness to students, teachers and film enthusiasts."
