Product Description

This new edition of A Hitchcock Reader aims to preserve what has been so satisfying and successful in the first edition: a comprehensive anthology that may be used as a critical text in introductory or advanced film courses, while also satisfying Hitchcock scholars by representing the rich variety of critical responses to the director''s films over the years.


  • a total of 20 of Hitchcock’s films are discussed in depth - many others are considered in passing

  • section introductions by the editors that contextualize the essays and the films they discuss

  • well-researched bibliographic references, which will allow readers to broaden the scope of their study of Alfred Hitchcock

Review

"The rewritten introductions to each section update scholarship on Hitchcock, engaging the reader in current debates among Hitchcock scholars and fans." ( CHOICE, 2009)

"The detail is extraordinary and the insights remarkable and the director? He would have been flattered, but still retorted "Oh it''s only a movie!"" ( M/C Reviews, May 2009)

Richard Allen, Professor and Chair of Cinema Studies, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University

Alfred Hitchcock, the "Master of Suspense," has been internationally recognized as a technical and stylistic innovator in the history of cinema. A Hitchcock Reader grows out of the editors'' desire as classroom teachers for a comprehensive and critical text in introductory or advanced courses devoted to the director''s films. Yet the book should also satisfy scholars by providing an updated anthology representing the rich variety of critical responses that Hitchcock''s films have evoked over the years.

This new edition of A Hitchcock Reader aims to preserve what has been so satisfying – and successful – in the first edition. This new edition, however, will update scholarship since publication of the first edition; offer entirely new editorial matter, including a general introduction to the volume; more visuals; and comprehensive bibliographies of suggested readings, references, and works cited.
