I'm going to have to buy this! Thanks to Brian for giving the heads up on this  :P



About the Book
In 1970s Italy, after the decline of the Spaghetti Western, crime films were the most popular, profitable and controversial genre. The product of a country plagued with violence, political tensions and armed struggle, these films managed to capture and convey the widespread anxiety and anger in their tales of tough cops, ruthless criminals and urban paranoia. Recent years have seen a renewed critical interest in the genre, thanks also to such illustrious fans as Quentin Tarantino.

This book includes all the crime films produced in Italy between 1968 and 1980, the period when the genre began and reached its peak. With 220+ entries, it is the most complete English language book on the subject. Films are listed year by year. A complete cast and crew list, home video releases, plot summary and the author’s own analysis are given for each film. Excerpts from a variety of sources are included: academic texts, contemporary reviews, and interviews with filmmakers, scriptwriters and actors. There are many on-set stills and film posters.

About the Author
Roberto Curti is an Italian film critic and a contributor to several Italian and foreign film magazines as well as collective volumes published in Italy, Great Britain and Spain. He lives in Italy.

Just emailed the publishers regarding shipping to the UK and it will be an extra $35 so the total will be $90. No surprise there really considering the recent hike in postal prices from the USA.

Despite this I'm still keen to get a copy!

It's rather expensive (like all the books McFarland) do.

It should turn up on Amazon UK. McFarland stuff is usually around the mid £30 area.

I saw it on Amazon yesterday morning and thought I'd wait and see what the price is come release date.

Amazon UK or US? I checked Amazon UK yesterday and it didn't show, but that have been down to the mobile app which does tend to hide results of they're not available.

I know it's there now; I saw it earlier. Was just asking Paul to clarify where he saw it Friday as it wasn't on UK when I checked then.

Probably the app, mate - was definitely on the .co.uk desktop site when I said and priced at £35-something.
