    French Cinema: A Student's Book is an introduction to French cinema, in English. This text includes the history of the origins of French film, an explanation of how to analyze a film, a lexicon of French cinema terms, and an analysis of 17 major masterpieces of French filmmaking. A parallel French version of this text, Apprentissage du cinema francais, is also available, so the same course can be taught to students of French culture as well as students of French language.

  49. From Russian Into English (Second Edition)

    Lynne Visson

    From Russian Into English (Second Edition)

    "This is the only text that actually teaches the student how to cope with practical Russian-English interpretation and translation problems which are becoming ever more important in today's global village. All those to whom I have recommended the first edition have found it a highly useful if not indispensable tool, and this revised and expanded version will be welcomed by advanced students of Russian as well as future interpreters and translators. Dr. Visson is to be commended for her emphasis on the importance of using correct and appropriate English equivalents for a broad range of Russian formal and informal colloquial expressions."
