This colection explores the early artistic and cultural factors that contributed to the emergence of film in a heterogeneous media environment at the turn of the 20th century. Focusing their attention on lithographs and photographs of Mexico created by European and North American visitors, the contributors study the impact that the introduction in the 19th century of the illustrated newspaper and the popular photographic album of the 19th century had on the private space of the printed page and the ways in which the convergence of these printed media informed the dynamics of the moving image.

John Fullerton writes about war, espionage, duty and conscience. Choosing exotic settings from his experiences as a Reuters correspondent, from Afghanistan and Bosnia to Lebanon and South Africa, he portrays the lone individual up against forces much more powerful than himself or herself, and the struggle for survival that inevitably ensues. He is the author of four novels, THE MONKEY HOUSE, A HOSTILE PLACE, THIS GREEN LAND and WHITE BOYS DON'T CRY.
