Documentary productions encompass remarkable representations of surprising realities. How do documentaries achieve their ends? What types of documentaries are there? What factors are implicated in their production? Such questions animate this engaging study. Documentary Screens is a comprehensive and critical study of the formal features and histories of central categories of documentary film and television. Among the categories examined are autobiographical, indigenous and ethnographic documentary, compilation films, direct cinema and cinema verite and television documentary journalism. The book also considers recent so-called popular factual entertainment and the future of documentary film, television and new media. This provocative and accessible analysis situates wide-ranging examples from each category within the larger material forces which impact on documentary form and content. The important connection between form, content and context explored in the book constitutes a new and lively 'documentary studies' approach to documentary representation.

Following the success of EPIC: STORIES OF SURVIVAL FROM THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PEAKS, Adrenaline Books returns with HIGH: STORIES OF SURVIVAL FROM EVEREST AND K2. The first anthology devote exculusively to climbing on the world's two highest and best-known mountains, High spans the years 1933 through 1996. Editor Clint Willis has gathered the best-written and most exciting prose about mountaineering's ultimate challenges by the century's most accomplished writers - from Jon Krakauer to David Roberts to Chris Bonnington. When Matt Dickinson tells what it's like for an amateur to climb a swaying aluminium ladder high on Everest's North Col route, we understand his fear. When Jim Haverl waits high on K2's Abruzzi Ridge for sunrise over China to slow the bitter wind and warm his extremities, we know he is cold. When Maria Coffey mourns the loss of her beloved, who died on Everest's unclimbed North Ridge, we grieve with her. And when Doug Scott summits Everest via the horrendously difficult Southwest face and later writes of the moment, `All the world lay before us. . . , ' it lies before us as well.
