[Commlist] New book: Transformation and Tradition in 1960s British Cinema

Fri Jun 07 11:14:40 GMT 2019

Transformation and Tradition in 1960s British Cinema

Richard Farmer, Laura Mayne, Duncan Petrie and Melanie Williams

The first scholarly volume on 1960s British cinema for more than twenty-five years, this book provides a major reconsideration of the period by focusing on the central tensions and contradictions between novelty/revolution and continuity/tradition during what remains a highly contentious period of cultural production and consumption.

*Key features*

·Explores the British film industry, production, distribution and state support during the 1960s

·Examines creative agency, production cultures, and contributions made by different creative practitioners to British film culture

·Investigates British cinema’s connections with television, advertising and pop music

Scholarly and authoritative, yet lucid and intelligible, this is a timely new assessment of British cinema's most vibrant decade. The authors' collective approach provides valuable insights which demonstrate there was much more to 60s film culture than the Beatles and Bond. Undoubtedly one of the most important contributions to British cinema history of recent times.
