Product Description


Overall, this work offers a serious and scholarlyoverview of several genres of historical film and would make auseful addition to academic collections in particular.  (Reference Reviews, 1 June 2014)

Ultimately, this important collection will prove a usefuland accessible resource for researchers and pedagogues both anddeserves to be a fixture in the reading lists of students ofhistory as well as film and cultural studies. It would certainly beuseful to hear what historians have to say about these analyses andhow those in that discipline are coping with the idea that dramaticrecreations, fictions and documentaries might be treated seriouslyfor the theses they present on the experience and understanding ofthe past.   (Historical Journal of Film, Radio andTelevision, 1 March 2014)

Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower–divisionundergraduates through faculty.   (Choice, 1August 2013)


Rosenstone and Parvulescu appropriately invite us tore–consider the relationship between history and film, enlistingall the best names in the field for this excellent and timelyCompanion to the Historical Film."  – Claudio Fogu,University of California, Santa Barbara

Embracing an impressive array of perspectives on featurefilms from across the world, this Companion will become anauthoritative work of reference for anyone interested in how filmrepresents, and even rethinks, history.
