Instantly recognisable from their music and visual style, spaghetti westerns are a magnificently popular cult film genre. Through home media, they´ve stayed alive and available to an avid audience, enjoying remarkable influence and lasting success. In over 500 detailed film reviews covering 20 years of westerns in Europe, genre expert Howard Hughes takes a fascinating snapshot of European western films and filmmaking during their frenzied, popular heyday. He narrates the spaghetti western story from the genre´s early, tentative days to its explosive golden era following the success of A Fistful of Dollars and the mass-produced scramble of films that swamped cinemas in the late 1960s, before the gradual falling off of enchantment with the genre. Death in the Desert also looks at other westerns made in Europe in the 1960s and ´70s: the early West German ´Winnetou´ westerns, swashbuckling Spanish ´Zorro´ movies, kung-fu westerns, German musical and comedy westerns, American and British westerns filmed in Spain, and the then East Germany. This essential read for cinephiles, collectors and completists, is fully illustrated with rare posters and stills.

Since it was first published in 1998, Viola Shafik´s Arab Cinema: History and Cultural Identity has become an indispensable work for scholars of film and the contemporary Middle East. Combining detailed narrative history - economic, ideological, and aesthetic - with thought-provoking analysis, Arab Cinema provides a comprehensive overview of cinema in the Arab world, tracing the industry´s development from colonial times to the present. It analyzes the ambiguous relationship with commercial western cinema, and the effect of Egyptian market dominance in the region. Tracing the influence on the medium of local and regional art forms and modes of thought, both classical and popular, Shafik shows how indigenous and external factors combine in a dynamic process of ´´cultural repackaging.´´ Now updated to reflect cultural shifts in the last two decades, this revised edition contains a new afterword highlighting the latest developments in popular and in art-house filmmaking, with a special focus on Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, and the Gulf States. While exploring problematic issues such as European co-production for Arab art films, including their relation to cultural identity and their reception in the region and abroad, this new edition introduces readers to some of the most compelling cinematic works of the last decades.´´Intelligent, perceptive, and elegantly written, this volume deserves a broad readership. Highly recommended. All readers, all levels.´´--CHOICE
