Over the past year the success of British films at international film festivals - as well as the numerous awards bestowed on 12 Years a Slave - have demonstrated that British cinema has undergone a genuine renaissance that has caused new voices to emerge. At the same time, directors whose work has enthralled over the past five years have also continued to develop and expand their visions. The boundaries of British film-making are being redefined. Beginning with a preface exploring some of the factors that have led to this fertile environment, New British Cinema features in-depth interviews with the film-making voices at the vanguard of this new wave. Figures such as Clio Barnard, Richard Ayoade, Steve McQueen, Jonathan Glazer, Carol Morley, Yann Demange, Peter Strickland and Ben Wheatley provide a valuable insight into their work and working methods.

Andrew Higson demonstrates how a variety of Englishnesses have appeared on screen since 1990m, and surveys the genres and production modes that have captured those representations. He examines several contemporary 'English' dramas that embody the transnationalism of contemporary cinema, from 'Notting Hill' to 'The Constant Gardener'.

British Cinema of the 90s has been both saluted as a significant cinematic renaissance and derided as the glossiest of a long sequence of false dawns. In either case it has become clear that the terms of discussion have changed considerably with new developments in production leading to a big increase in films being made. A need therefore exists for an overview of the industry in the 1990s as well as an account of the changing images of Britain on the big screen. Systematically examining all major aspects of British cinema, the contributors deal with box office successes like Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bean, The Full Monty and Trainspotting as well as critically acclaimed films such as Under the Skin and Love is the Devil. Drawing upon a range of experts, the book explores such issues as the role of distribution and exhibition, the Americanization of British film culture, the difficulties of British films in getting theatrical release, Hollywood and Europe, the impact of youth-oriented cinema, the heritage film, and changing representations of sexuality and ethnicity. This book provides the only up-to-date overview of the 1990s for everyone interested in contemporary British cinema.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY FINANCIAL TIMES From Robert D. Kaplan, named one of the world’s Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy magazine, comes a penetrating look at the volatile region that will dominate the future of geopolitical conflict. Over the last decade, the center of world power has been quietly shifting from Europe to Asia. With oil reserves of several billion barrels, an estimated nine hundred trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and several centuries’ worth of competing territorial claims, the South China Sea in particular is a simmering pot of potential conflict. The underreported military buildup in the area where the Western Pacific meets the Indian Ocean means that it will likely be a hinge point for global war and peace for the foreseeable future. In Asia’s Cauldron, Robert D. Kaplan offers up a vivid snapshot of the nations surrounding the South China Sea, the conflicts brewing in the region at the dawn of the twenty-first century, and their implications for global peace and stability. One of the world’s most perceptive foreign policy experts, Kaplan interprets America’s interests in Asia in the context of an increasingly assertive China. He explains how the region’s unique geography fosters the growth of navies but also impedes aggression. And he draws a striking parallel between China’s quest for hegemony in the South China Sea and the United States’ imperial adventure in the Caribbean more than a century ago. To understand the future of conflict in East Asia, Kaplan argues, one must understand the goals and motivations of its leaders and its people. Part travelogue, part geopolitical primer, Asia’s Cauldron takes us on a journey through the region’s boom cities and ramshackle slums: from Vietnam, where the superfueled capitalism of the erstwhile colonial capital, Saigon, inspires the geostrategic pretensions of the official seat of government in Hanoi, to Malaysia, where a unique mix of authoritarian Islam and Western-style consumerism creates quite possibly the ultimate postmodern society; and from Singapore, whose “benevolent autocracy” helped foster an economic miracle, to the Philippines, where a different brand of authoritarianism under Ferdinand Marcos led not to economic growth but to decades of corruption and crime. At a time when every day’s news seems to contain some new story—large or small—that directly relates to conflicts over the South China Sea, Asia’s Cauldron is an indispensable guide to a corner of the globe that will affect all of our lives for years to come. Praise for Asia’s Cauldron “Asia’s Cauldron is a short book with a powerful thesis, and it stands out for its clarity and good sense. . . . If you are doing business in China, traveling in Southeast Asia or just obsessing about geopolitics, you will want to read it.”—The New York Times Book Review “Kaplan has established himself as one of our most consequential geopolitical thinkers. . . . [Asia’s Cauldron] is part treatise on geopolitics, part travel narrative. Indeed, he writes in the tradition of the great travel writers.”—The Weekly Standard “Kaplan’s fascinating book is a welcome challenge to the pessimists who see only trouble in China’s rise and the hawks who view it as malign.”—The Economist “Muscular, deeply knowledgeable . . . Kaplan is an ultra-realist [who] takes a non-moralistic stance on questions of power and diplomacy.”—Financial Times From the Hardcover edition.

Aimed explicitly at those coming to British cinema for the first time - either as student or teacher - and assuming little in the way of prior knowledge, the Studying British Cinema series considers key texts from the decade under discussion and accessibly places them in their artistic and historical contexts Studying British Cinema: 1999-2009 reflects on a diverse and surprising range of films - from the populist and mainstream to more esoteric, low budget art-house releases - produced in a decade of tremendous global shifts and surprises that had an impact, one way or another, on British cinema culture. John Fitzgerald considers the institutional and financial factors around UK film production in the `Noughties' as well as assessing issues around genre, representation, authorship in the broadest sense, social, economic and political contexts. The growth of the co-production is assessed by looking at Aardman Animation and the Harry Potter franchise. Issues around representation and social class are considered in relation to films as diverse as Red Road [2006] and Love Actually (2003) and there is an assessment of developments in social realism, primarily coming from female directors such as Lynne Ramsay. In terms of genre, the revival of the British science fiction and horror-film are covered in detail, with case studies ranging from 28 Days Later (2002) to Eden Lake (2008). There are also chapters on how ethnic groups and economic migrants are represented (such as Dirty Prelly Things, 2002) and the growth of films concerning British protagonists in Africa (The Last King of Scotland, 2005).
