By (author) Dr. Tom Maguire

The book is aimed at a student readership: it is largely play-text-based, and it contains useful contextualising material.

By (author) Dr. Michael Hammond
The Big Show looks at the role played by cinema in British cultural life during World War One.

Theatre Workshop: Joan Littlewood and the Making of Modern British Theatre is the first in-depth study of perhaps Britain’s most influential twentieth-century theatre company.

By (author) Dr. Bill McDonnell

By (author) Dr. Joe Kember
In this study of early film exhibition, Joe Kember demonstrates that prior to the emergence of a specific discipline of screen acting and the arrival of picture personalities, the early cinema inherited its human dimensions from diverse earlier traditions of performance, from the magic lantern lecture to the fairground and variety theatre.
By (author) François Mauriac Edited by Dr Paul Cooke

By (author) Dr David Ingram
This book combines film studies with environmental history and politics, aiming to establish a cultural criticism informed by 'green' thought. David Ingram argues that Hollywood cinema has largely perpetuated romantic attitudes to nature and has played an important ideological role in the 'greenwashing' of ecological discourses.

"An American in Victorian Cambridge" is a richly detailed account of student life in the Cambridge of the 1840s. The rationale for the book, which is as appealing today as it was then, is that this is pre-eminently a book about an American student at an English university. In this new edition, some substantial additions have been made.
