Abstract

This section features introductions to three newly translated books. The first, Film Kuramı: Duyular Yoluyla Bir Giriş (Film Theory: An Introduction Through the Senses), written by Elsaesser and Hagener, rethinks film theories from an audience-centered perspective by using thematic analogies such as “window,” “door,” and “mirror.” The second book, Luchino Visconti by Geoffrey Nowell-Smith, gives an evaluation of Visconti’s films from a personal perspective based on his autobiography. The third book is Douglas Kellner’s Sinema Savaşları: Bush-Cheney Döneminde Hollywood Sineması ve Siyaset (Cinema Wars: Hollywood Film and Politics in the Bush-Cheney Era). It is a study of Hollywood films made in the aggressive political and cultural milieu of the Bush administration.
