Description

<p> <b>Review</b></p> <p> One of the great works of film history, this look at early German cinema . . . is still a must-have. (<b>H.J. Kirchhoff</b> <i><b>Toronto Globe and Mail</b></i> )</p> <p> <b>Review</b></p> <p> An undisputed classic of modern film historiography, Kracauer's <i>From Caligari to Hitler</i> had a major impact on the way we relate movies to history and society. Although Kracauer is not afraid of using such contested concepts as collective psychology and German 'soul,' his productive readings of Weimar films as harbingers of emerging fascism still resonate today. Leonardo Quaresima's engaging and erudite introduction is critical in situating Kracauer's project both in its historical moment and in our time.
