Editorial Reviews

Review

“Covers all levels of motion pictures from a business perspective … .This book examines the industry in contemporary marketing terms, and each essay clearly explains another aspect of American film as a business. THE CONTEMPORARY HOLLYWOOD FILM INDUSTRY is a truly indispensable book, and a pioneering effort in understanding cinema’s business aspects. It’s thorough study of the financial side of motion pictures, complete with full lists of sources after each insightful essay, is fascinating, enlightening, and instructive.” (RogueCinema.com, December 2008)

Review

"Expertly organised and sharply focused, this collection gives its readers a clear and comprehensive introduction to how Hollywood has reorganised itself for its second century as the dominant global entertainment machine."
–Richard Maltby, Flinders University

"The Contemporary Hollywood Film Industry does well to highlight the evolving 'global Hollywood,' the American film industry’s truly multinational scale and scope. Of particular interest are the book’s several essays on so-called ancillary industries like videogames and music, which give readers a good, long look at a film industry that today concerns itself with a lot more than just making movies."
–Jon Lewis, Professor, Oregon State University
