Product Description


“[A] fine work.”
(Noah Isenberg Film Comment 2012-07-01)

“There is an urgency in these pieces to convey exactly how powerful what he called “those movies with a message” could be.”
(Los Angeles Review Of Books 2012-11-07)

“American Writings shows that Kracauer was . . . a cultural critic keenly attuned to the interplay of culture and politics as they collided on the cinema screen.”
(Times Literary Supplement (TLS) 2012-12-18)

“This edition is quite informative. . . . [The editors’ input] smoothly guides through the many facets of this important character.”
(Alexander Ebert 2013-04-08)

From the Inside Flap

“We know Siegfried Kracauer as a brilliant Weimar essayist, a Frankfurt School fellow traveler, and a pioneering postwar film theorist. This collection of his American writings uncovers fascinating corners of his film and cultural criticism, firmly placing him in the context of the New York Intellectuals as well.”—Peter Decherney, author of Hollywood's Copyright Wars: From Edison to the Internet.
