Title: Documentary (History of the Non-fiction Film)
Author: Barnouw, Erik
Price: $23.95

This is the second major revision of a book universally acclaimed as the definitive history of the documentary film. The final section has been completely rewritten and expanded to take into account the major films and trends of the past nine years. Particular attention has been paid to the growth of documentary film-making in the Soviet Union since Glasnost and the corresponding expansion in the United States, including Ken Burns's The Civil War , which broke all audience records for Public Television in 1990. This book is intended for students in undergraduate courses in documentary film.

Erik Barnouw, now retired, was Chief of the Library of Congress's Motion Picture, Broadcasting, and Recorded Sound Division, and long headed Columbia University's film division. His books include the prize-winning three-volume History of Broadcasting in the United States, Tube of Plenty, TheSponsor, and The Magician and the Cinema.
