Wisconsin Film Studies

Patrick McGilligan, Series Editor

Wisconsin Film Studies offers works by emerging and eminent scholars focusing on deserving areas of film study. The series presents books whose fresh scholarship or perspective will make an enduring contribution to film literature. The range is broad, and manuscripts on all periods and national film cultures are invited.

The editor invites manuscripts and proposals that focus on important aspects of American and international film, including biographies and autobiographies of key artists (especially directors, screenwriters, and actors); major films; national identity; neglected history; and political investigation.

The series will consider a variety of formats: broad overviews; specific topics; thematic volumes of essays (original or collected on related subjects); anthologies primarily for classroom use; and suggestions for reprinting classic or first-time paperback editions of major works in the field.

Please send all inquiries to UW Press Executive Editor Raphael Kadushin.

John Williams’s Film Music
Jaws, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and the Return of the Classical Hollywood Music Style
Emilio Audissino

“A much-needed work that captures the spirit and thinking of John Williams. Audissino is to be applauded for taking on such a large musical figure and for presenting him in the most wide-ranging manner. One gets the impression that he has tracked down every significant fact on Mr. Williams.”
—Vincent LoBrutto, author of Sound-On-Film
