German Television : Historical and Theoretical Perspectives, Hardback Book

German Television : Historical and Theoretical Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Larson Powell, Robert R. Shandley

Part of the Film Europa series


Long overlooked by scholars and critics, the history and aesthetics of German television have only recently begun to attract serious, sustained attention, and then largely within Germany.

This ambitious volume, the first in English on the subject, provides a much-needed corrective in the form of penetrating essays on the distinctive theories, practices, and social-historical contexts that have defined television in Germany.

Encompassing developments from the dawn of the medium through the Cold War and post-reunification, this is an essential introduction to a rich and varied media tradition.
