Originally released as a videographic experiment in film history, Jean-Luc Godard''s Histoire(s) du cinéma has pioneered how we think about and narrate cinema history, and in how history is taught through cinema. In this stunningly illustrated volume, Michael Witt explores Godard''s landmark work as both a specimen of an artist''s vision and a philosophical statement on the history of film. Witt contextualizes Godard''s theories and approaches to historiography and provides a guide to the wide-ranging cinematic, aesthetic, and cultural forces that shaped Godard''s groundbreaking ideas on the history of cinema.

Michael Witt is Professor of Cinema and Co-Director of the Centre for Research in Film and Audiovisual Cultures at University of Roehampton in London. He is co-editor of several books on French film including Jean-Luc Godard: Documents, The French Cinema Book, and For Ever Godard.
