This authoritative volume is a readable, illustrated history of motion pictures from pre-cinema to the present day, written from a global perspective. It covers the technological and stylistic developments of movies in the rich context of culture, politics, society and other arts. The author does not treat the history of film as a self-contained subject but rather as a dynamic medium within a constellation of other factors.
