The papers collected here represent the renewed interest in historical questions and historical film from the standpoint of those working within Film and Media studies. This film studies bias was also reflected in the conference - The Third Australian History and Film Conference held in Perth in 1985 - from which these papers were drawn. The reader will find essays on: Australian and 1930s film history, John Grierson, 1950s current affairs TV, the contemporary "Nazi wave" in New German Cinema, history and film in the curriculum, the historian as film producer, and many more.
For an essay length discussion of this volume see Julian Thomas, "History with and Without Film", Meanjin, v. 48, n. 2 (1989), pp. 419-427.
