From the Back Cover
"In its field I cannot imagine a research guide more needed. For whole decades scholars have struggled simply to locate sources, even to find out what there were. Now, however, the skill and stamina of Nornes and Gerow have resulted in a reference work which both illuminates and defines this field, clearing a formerly obscured terrain for future scholarship." - Donald Richie
"Every national cinema should be graced with such a resource as the one Nornes and Gerow have so generously and painstakingly assembled. This is a welcome and welcoming gateway through which will pass the next generation of scholars, able at last to swiftly draw on all that is available, as they make more become available in turn. Let's hope that generation will exhibit the drive, clarity, comprehensiveness, and vision that these authors display. Their 'frequently asked questions' are ones I have been asked for decades; at last I have the answers." - Dudley Andrew, Yale University
