I.B. Tauris is delighted to announce the reissue in paperback in three volumes of the definitive, most comprehensive edition, in the finest translations and fully annotated, of the writings of this great filmmaker, theorist and teacher of film - and one of the most original aesthetic thinkers of the twentieth century. The name of Sergei Eisenstein (1898-1948) is synonymous with the idea of montage, as exemplified in his silent classics such as 'The Battleship Potemkin' (1925) and 'October' (1927). In the 1930s his style changed, partly to accommodate the arrival of sound, and his ideas on audio-visual counterpoint developed. Between 1937 and 1940 he elaborated his ideas on montage in a series of essays, most of which remained unpublished until after his death and which are published in English for the first time in this volume. They present the essence of Eisenstein’s thinking on cinema and aesthetics more generally and reveal him as one of the most significant philosophers of art of the twentieth century.

The disruptive power of montage has often been regarded as a threat to scholarly representations of the social world. This volume asserts the opposite: that the destabilization of commonsense perception is the very precondition for transcending social and cultural categories. The contributors—anthropologists, filmmakers, photographers, and curators—explore the use of montage as a heuristic tool for comparative analysis in anthropological writing, film, and exhibition making. Exploring phenomena such as human perception, memory, visuality, ritual, time, and globalization, they apply montage to restructure our basic understanding of social reality. Furthermore, as George E. Marcus suggests in the afterword, the power of montage that this volume exposes lies in its ability to open the very “combustion chamber” of social theory by juxtaposing one’s claims to knowledge with the path undertaken to arrive at those claims.

How do anthropologists write their texts? What is the nature of creativity in the discipline of anthropology? This book follows anthropologists into spaces where words, ideas and arguments take shape and explores the steps in a creative process. In a unique examination of how texts come to be composed, the editors bring together a distinguished group of anthropologists who offer valuable insight into their writing habits. These reflexive glimpses into personal creativity reveal not only the processes by which theory and ethnography come, in particular cases, to be represented on the page but also supply examples that students may follow or adapt.

The Film Anthologies Index is a bibliographical resource essential to any person or institution interested in the study of film. No publication or database currently indexes the contents of these important anthologies. There are over 600 anthologies (by both multiple and single authors) in English that have been published through 1991. These anthologies contain over 10,000 stand-alone pieces that (1) reprint articles from their original source, (2) select exceerpts from book-length publications, and (3) include original essays appearing only in a specialized anthology. Without The Film Anthologies Index, the researcher would have no guide to the valuable contents between the covers of these anthologies. Much more than just a guide to the contents of anthologies, the main section consists of 6,563 numbered entries that alphabetically list by author the contents of each piece found in the anthologies. (You could find, for example, all pieces written by a particular author which have appeared in the anthologies.) Additionally, every author entry refers the user to all the anthologized sources which contain each specific piece. (For example, Robert Warshow's landmark essay on "Movie Chronicle: The Westerner" can be found in 9 different anthologies or that selected essays by Sergei Einstein appear in over 50 separate anthologies.) Without The Film Anthologies Index there would be no way to systematically locate these buried treasures. The final section of The Film Anthologies Index consists of an extensive listing of all film titles, individual names, specific genres, countries, periods, studios, etc. as well as all key words and phrases that appear in the titles of the included pieces There are approximately 7000 topics covered in this section. The user-friendly layout of this reference source makes it both a comprehensive resource for everyone from the casual movie-goer who wants a deeper understanding of the medium to the dedicated film scholar who is pursuing material on
