Ideology and the Image
Social Representation in the Cinema and Other Mediaav Bill Nichols209Skickas inom 10-15 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.To what degree, Nichols asks, does ideology inform images in films, advertising, and other media? Does the cinema or any other sign system liberate or manipulate us? How can we as spectators know when the media are subtly perpetuating a specific set of values? To address these issues, the author draws from a variety of approaches-Marxism, psycholanalysis, communication theory, semiotics, structuralism, the psychology of perception. Working with two interrelated theories-ideology and image-systems, and ideology and principles of textual criticism-Nichols shows how and why we make emotional investments in sign sytsems with an ideological context.

"Nichols employs current theories of narrative ... in a wide-ranging exploration of the various codes of cinematic representation... His work with the structure of documentary and ethnographic film is ... innovative." Library Journal "What makes this book so interesting is the care given to explaining theoretical principles... [Nichols's] textual analyses are useful models not only for film criticism, but for a more broadly contextual analysis of the relationship between art and ideology." Afterimage
