Overall, this work offers a serious and scholarly overview of several genres of historical film and would make a useful addition to academic collections in particular. (Reference Reviews, 1 June 2014)
Ultimately, this important collection will prove a useful and accessible resource for researchers and pedagogues both and deserves to be a fixture in the reading lists of students of history as well as film and cultural studies. It would certainly be useful to hear what historians have to say about these analyses and how those in that discipline are coping with the idea that dramatic recreations, fictions and documentaries might be treated seriously for the theses they present on the experience and understanding of the past. (Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, 1 March 2014)
Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower–division undergraduates through faculty. (Choice, 1 August 2013)
Rosenstone and Parvulescu appropriately invite us to re–consider the relationship between history and film, enlisting all the best names in the field for this excellent and timely Companion to the Historical Film." – Claudio Fogu, University of California, Santa Barbara
Embracing an impressive array of perspectives on feature films from across the world, this Companion will become an authoritative work of reference for anyone interested in how film represents, and even rethinks, history.
– Maria Wyke, University College London
