Review German National Cinema provides colleagues and students with a stimulating and comprehensive historical summary of German cinema from Skladanowsky to Tykwer. The author's arguments are cogent, persuasive, and incorporate numerous current theoretical approaches without the use of technical jargon. It will serve as a valuable resource tool for colleagues teaching German cinema and should be in every college library.
–Franz A. Birgel, Muhlenberg College

Hake (German studies, Univ. of Pittsburgh) offers an impressively comprehensive account that bristles with intriguing questions and opens new perspectives on many of the seven phases she persuasively identifies in German film history. She provides a more balanced presentation of the 1950s than has heretofore been available in English and also does a good job sketching East German cinema and the new initiatives since national reunification in 1991.
–S. Liebman, CHOICE excellent introduction to the history of German cinema.
