Directory of World Cinema: Eastern Europe
Editor: Adam Bingham
The first volume on Eastern Europe will consider the multitude of new wave cinemas that have proliferated in the countries of East Central Europe: beginning in the post-war, post-Stalinist era in 1955 with the Polish school, and continuing through the ensuing three decades until the end of the Eastern bloc. The volume will consist of both critical essays (2,000 words) and individual film reviews (800 words), and is to be structured in sections as follows:
- A series of critical essays on the salient genres of East European cinema in general, accompanied respectively by six representative reviews
- Separate sections on the significant countries of East European new wave cinema. These will be sub-divided by essays on the major directors and reviews of key works.

Digital Radio in Europe: Technologies, Industries and Cultures

About the book
Radio, the oldest form of electronic broadcasting, has been described as the last medium to go digital. Yet developments have been underway for over twenty years to create new technologies and digital platforms for the transmission of radio in digital form. Drawing upon extensive cross-national research conducted by the Digital Radio Cultures in Europe research group, this volume offers the first comprehensive review of the complex environment in which European digital radio now operates. The title describes the technologies, policies and different strategies utilized to bring radio into the digital era.
O’Neill and his co-editors present detailed studies of the development of Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB), successes and failures in digital radio implementation, and future scenarios for radio in a fully converged media environment. Essays address the fact that radio now stands at a crossroads in its development, and question whether the medium has a viable future or whether it will converge with other forms of multimedia and audiovisual media services. Digital Radio in Europe provides an accessible introduction for the student, researcher and practitioner to the technologies and policies for digital radio broadcasting in both a European and global context.
