This new edition of "A Hitchcock Reader" aims to preserve what has been so satisfying and successful in the first edition: a comprehensive anthology that may be used as a critical text in introductory or advanced film courses, while also satisfying Hitchcock scholars by representing the rich variety of critical responses to the director's films over the years.

  • a total of 20 of Hitchcock's films are discussed in depth - many others are considered in passing
  • section introductions by the editors that contextualize the essays and the films they discuss
  • well-researched bibliographic references, which will allow readers to broaden the scope of their study of Alfred Hitchcock
