The book is divided into seven sections, the first four covering key areas in the study of cinema, and the remainig three focusing on film forms, issues in cinema (such as postmodernism and the new visual technologies) and national cinemas. There are chapters on Soviet, Indian and European cinema, and an extended chapter on British films. Each chapter has its own glossary and film/videography to help the student locate the films discussed.
