"After a superb analytical preface, Alexandra Heidi Karriker presents ten sterling essays on the representation of women in world cinema from the regional and international women and film conferences held at the University of Oklahoma during the 1990s. It is unlike other film studies anthologies, which limit themselves to a genre, an 'auteur', or a national cinema and tend to be narrow in scope or geographical region. Karriker's book focuses on a specific theme - women in film - and expands its range to incorporate essays from several world film scholars from the United States, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand. The result is most felicitous, for it provides us with a multiplicity of cultural views - analytical, feminist, psychological, political, postcolonial, and queer - on how women are portrayed in film and gives the reader a sound and unbiased sample of important mainstream and independent films. 'Film Studies' is an essential book for all scholars in the humanities." (A. Robert Lauer, Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, & Linguistics, Film and Video Studies, The University of Oklahoma)
