Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This scholarly work proposes that an integral feature of both film and television is the "mobilized virtual gaze." This virtual gaze "is not a direct perception but a received perception mediated through representation." Also, the virtual gaze is a standard part of postmodern society, along with a diminished capacity to retain the past. Drawing from a wide range of sources, Friedberg traces the development of the virtual gaze from Jeremy Bentham's proposed glass prison, the Paris arcades, the creation of department stores, architecture, tourism, and the shopping mall. If the disappearance of history is indeed a symptom of postmodernity, then the author feels that movies and especially videos have added significantly to this development. Her interesting thesis is well presented. Academic collections should consider.
