First edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14cm, 394pp + 15pp ads.

From the dustwrapper, "This study, based on the author's own fieldwork and on the published literature, offers a framework for comparative sociological analysis of the cinema. It discusses the main aspects of the sociology of the cinema and examines the problems which are central to it. Among the topics considered are the structure and organization of the making of films, and of audience experiences, and of the evaluation process. Included is an extensive annotated bibliography."


This copy is heavily ex-library so is a reading copy. There is the usual splattering of discard stamps and labels, and some light and infrequent pencil underlining in the text. The book remains perfectly readable.
