The Routledge Encyclopedia of Film Theory
The Routledge Encyclopedia of Film Theory makes explicit the implicit assumptions behind each film theory by defining and contextualising the theory's terminology, in clear 'everyday' language that students will find accessible. The volume includes entries on the essential ideas and concepts at the centre of film theory from the beginning of the twentieth century to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Entries are narrowly focused on key texts but will also include a list of further reading. Entries on key film scholars are also included. The The Routledge Encyclopedia of Film Theory is a reference book for undergraduates in film studies as well as graduate students new to the discipline.
