Abstract:

This third edition contains 27 articles, written by scholars and
filmmakers who are generally acknowledged as the international
authorities in the field, and a new preface by the editor. The book
covers ethnographic filming and its relations to the cinema and
television; applications of filming to anthropological research, the
uses of still photography, archives, and videotape; subdisciplinary
applications in ethnography, archeology, bio-anthropology, museology
and ethnohistory; and overcoming the funding problems of film
production.

Paul Hockings is Professor (emeritus) of Anthroplogy at the University
of Illinois-Chicago, USA.
