A New History of Documentary Film, Second Edition offers a much-needed resource,
considering the very rapid changes taking place within documentary media. Building upon
the best-selling 2005 edition, Betsy McLane keeps the same chronological examination,
factual reliability, ease of use and accessible prose style as before, while also weaving
three new threads - Experimental Documentary, Visual Anthropology and
Environmental/Nature Films - into the discussion. She provides emphasis on archival and
preservation history, present practices, and future needs for documentaries. Along with
preservation information, specific problems of copyright and fair use, as they relate to
documentary, are considered.
Finally, A History of Documentary Film retains and updates the recommended readings
and important films and the end of each chapter from the first edition, including the
bibliography and appendices. Impossible to talk learnedly about documentary film without
an audio-visual component, a companion website will increase its depth of information and
overall usefulness to students, teachers and film enthusiasts.
