Description:
The book reconstructs the complex genesis of cinema and television as historically relative - and thus finite - cultural forms, focussing on the dynamics and tension in the interaction between the apparatus and its uses. It is also a plea for 'staying power' in studies of cultural technology and technological culture of film.
