"In my many years of work in this field, I can think of no other study that involves this level of intellectual sophistication in both theories of history and of the visual media, and certainly none which has grappled so successfully with the contentious issues surrounding the question of rendering the human past on screen." --Robert A Rosenstone, Professor Emeritus of History, California Institute of Technology, USA

"A comprehensive and rigorous study, Thanouli's fine work enriches our understanding of the historical film as a powerful agent of contemporary thinking about the past. Bringing sophisticated readings of historiography and film theory together, Thanouli critically integrates the two disciplines in a way that will undergird future research. A major scholarly accomplishment." --Robert Burgoyne, author of Film Nation: Hollywood Looks at US History (revised edition, 2010)

"Eleftheria Thanouli's new book reconceptualizes and reframes one of the most vexing questions in the history of film studies - that of the relationship between written and visual narratives. The scope of History and Film: A Tale of Two Disciplines extends and enriches the semantics of the field as established by Andr� Bazin, Marc Ferro, Robert Rosenstone, and Hayden White. Yet it goes further by incorporating new problematics and fresh approaches which make it the most innovative contemporary contribution to the study of filmic history by addressing the representation of history in historical films, fiction film, and documentary and by exploring dimensions of historical emplotment in various written narratives. From the early Soviet experiments to contemporary imaginative narratives, Thanouli's book investigates thoroughly and conclusively the complex relations between narrative and visual forms and re-interprets their links and disjunctures. It will be the study for standard reference for many years to come." --Vrasidas Karalis, Sir Nicholas Laurantos Chair in Modern Greek Studies, University of Sydney, Australia
