Edited by the distinguished filmmaker and historian Lewis Jacobs, the book has become an indispensable reference for both students and practitioners of documentary. This new edition brings The Documentary Tradition up to date and includes the writings of almost 100 filmmakers and critics. To the five parts which trace the development of the genre from the 1920s Jacobs has added a new section of seven essays on the documentaries of the 1970s. The section is introduced by his own survey of the filmmaking of the period, "From Political Activism to Women's Consciousness," and accompanied by a selected list of documentaries of the 1970s together with photographs from a number of these films. The bibliography of works on documentary films and filmmakers has been expanded." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 577-579 ISBN: 0393950425 LON: 1437994 URL status: URL: 'http://-'

The main emphasis of the book is on the British and American cinema and hundreds of documentary, action, and 'actuality' films from Nanook of the North to Woodstock and Gimme Shelter are described, discussed and analysed, including films by the great pioneers such as Robert Flaherty, Basil Wright, John Grierson and Paul Rotha and the new experimental film makers like Richard Leacock, D. A. Pennebaker, Frederick Wiseman and Albert and David Maysles. Richard Barsam provides a critical framework against which the non-fiction film can be studied and enjoyed. Among the many topics covered are early American, Russian and Continental films, the British and American films of the twenties and thirties, the films of World War II and the whole range of styles and subjects of the fifties, sixties and today." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Originally published: New York : Dutton, 1973; Bibl.: p.317-321. - List of films: p.299-316. - Index ISBN: 0047910313 (Pbk) : ª1.95; 0047910305 LON: 1923477 Contents: 1.
