Filmmakers and Their Soundtracks


About the Series

The Filmmakers and Their Soundtracks series consists of concise monographs that each address the nature of the soundtrack in the works of a significant filmmaker. The books in this series seek to expand scholarship on film music and sound – and to challenge those categories – by examining the use of sound across an individual filmmaker’s oeuvre. These short monographs of 25-50,000 words are published in the Routledge Focus format.
