"This new edition of Major Film Directors of the American and British Cinemas is a revised, updated, and expanded version of the previous edition. Gene D. Phillips focuses on fourteen American and British directors to tell the story of the history of cinema from the days of silent movies to the advent of sound, color, and widescreen. Phillips has chosen those moviemakers who have made enduring works that still appeal to filmgoers today, as attested by their availability on television and on videocassette. Moreover, Phillips seeks to represent the various trends in filmmaking that have evolved over the years, such as American film noir, which is included in the discussion of Alfred Hitchcock's films, and British social realism, which is included in the discussion of Bryan Forbes's films."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Here and There

Reading Pennsylvania's Working Landscapes

The global economy threatens the uniqueness of places, people, and experiences. In Here and There, Bill Conlogue tests the assumption that literature and local places matter less and less in a world that economists describe as “flat,” politicians believe has “globalized,” and social scientists imagine as a “global village.” Each chapter begins at home, journeys elsewhere, and returns to the author’s native and chosen region, northeastern Pennsylvania. Through the prisms of literature and history, the book explores tensions and conflicts within the region created by national and global demand for its resources: fertile farmland, forest products, anthracite coal, and college-educated young people. Making connections between local and global environmental issues, Here and There uses the Pennsylvania watersheds of urban Lackawanna and rural Lackawaxen to highlight the importance of understanding and protecting the places we call home.
