Documentary : A History of the Non-Fiction Film, Paperback / softback Book


This is the second major revision of a book universally acclaimed as the definitive history of the documentary film.

The final section has been completely rewritten and expanded to take into account the major films and trends of the past nine years.

Particular attention has been paid to the growth of documentary film-making in the Soviet Union since Glasnost and the corresponding expansion in the United States, including Ken Burns's The Civil War, whichbroke all audience records for Public Television in 1990.
