The MeCETES publication European Cinema and Television: Cultural Policy and Everyday Life (edited by Ib Bondebjerg, Eva Novrup Redvall, and Andrew Higson) has received two positive reviews in the academic press.
Jonathan Hardy (University of East London) in Transnational Cinemas writes:
“The collection is particularly strong in mapping and illustrating more complex patterns of cultural production, content, circulation and consumption…. The essays are all well written, cover a wide range of examples and identify pathways for innovative methodologies and integrative forms of analysis. It is a work of great scholarship and collective endeavor that will be of real value to anyone interested in European cinemas, television, policy, society and culture, and perhaps above all for those, like the book’s editors and authors, interested in the connections across all these domains.”
Olof Hedling (Lund University) in Nordicom Review writes:
“European Cinema and Television: Cultural Policy and Everyday Life is a substantial work in many ways. It provides data, detailed descriptions of practices and regulative policies as well as some of their consequences in the complex, fragmented, transnational, occasionally successful, but ultimately somewhat disordered, film and television landscape of Europe…. European Cinema and Television: Cultural Policy and Everyday Life represents an authoritative and significant contribution to the increasingly studied field that is the industries and regulative frameworks of European film and television.”
European Cinema and Television: Cultural Policy and Everyday Life is published by Palgrave Macmillan in both hardcopy and ebook. Copies can be purchased from the Palgrave Macmillan website.
