David A. Cook

This month, W. W. Norton & Company will publish the fifth edition of David A. Cook’s “A HISTORY OF NARRATIVE FILM” (1981; 1990; 1996; 2005; 2015). In promotional copy, Norton notes it is a trusted reference, a popular teaching text, and a well-written history. “‘A HISTORY OF NARRATIVE FILM’ is one of the most respected and widely read texts in film studies. This streamlined Fifth Edition provides a brand new chapter on twenty-first century film, refreshed coverage of contemporary digital production, distribution, and consumption of film, and a richly redesigned art program, making the text more useful to instructors and more appealing to students than ever before.”

David A. Cook is a professor in the Department of Media Studies. He is the author of “LOST ILLUSIONS: AMERICAN CINEMA IN THE SHADOW OF WATERGATE AND VIETNAM, 1970-1979” (University of California Press, 2002).
