Documentary : a history of the non-fiction film by Erik Barnouw ( Book )
45 editions published between 1974 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Now brought completely up to date, the new edition of this classic work on documentary films and film making surveys the history of the genre from 1895 to the present day. With the myriad social upheavals over the past decade, documentaries have enjoyed an international renaissance; here Barnouw considers the medium in the light of an entirely new political and social climate. He examines as well the latest film making technology, and the effects that video cassettes and cable television are having on the production of documentaries. And like the previous editions, Documentary is filled with photographs, many of them rare, collected during the author's travels around the world. Covering the full course of the documentary from Louis Lumiere's first effort to recent landmark productions such as Shoah, this book makes the growing importance of a unique blend of art and reality accessible and understandable to all film lovers

The sponsor : notes on a modern potentate by Erik Barnouw ( Book )
25 editions published between 1978 and 2004 in English and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Sponsor is divided into three parts. In "Rise," Barnouw sketches the rise of the sponsor, in both radio and television, to his present state of eminence. In "Domain," the sponsor's pervasive impact on television programming is examined, with an emphasis on network television, the primary arena of the industry. And in "Prospect," Barnouw assesses what such dominance has meant for American society, mores, and institutions - and what it may mean for our future. This is a gripping volume about power, how it not only influences programming itself, but how it defines for the average person what is good, great, and desirable."--BOOK JACKET
