"There is a large literature on the scholarship and pedagogy of documentary film, much of it published in the last decade and much of it indebted to Nichols's previous work in the field, notably Representing Reality: Issues and Concepts in Documentary (CH, Jul'92). Nichols (Univ. of Rochester) organizes the present wonderful book by eight basic questions -- for example, How Do Documentaries Differ from Other Types of Film? and What Types of Documentary Are There? -- each answered with clarity, with plenty of examples and visual illustrations drawn from a century of documentary film, and with a degree of sophistication belied by the straightforward, functional prose. Students will appreciate Nichols's fondness for categories (for example, his seven modes of documentary) and will enjoy his instructions for writing about documentary film, embedded in invented student essays on Robert Flaherty's Nanook of the North (1922). Although scholars in film studies will find much of the content and analysis familiar, this engaging, thoughtful, accessible, and comprehensive work will stimulate many. An essential volume for libraries and an instant classroom classic, this book is recommended for readers at all levels." -- W. Graebner, SUNY College at Fredonia, Choice, May 2002
