History Goes to the Movies is written from an international perspective and, blending theoretical and methodological issues with lots of real examples. Do historical films necessarily make bad (or good) history? Can film be used as historical evidence? Are documentaries more useful to historians than historical drama? This book considers that history is not simply to be found in films, but in the agreements and arguments of those who make and view them.
