Videoland examines the ways that video rental stores altered movie culture from the 1970s through the 2000s. Drawing from archival research and fieldwork conducted from 2008-2012, this book provides a critical reflection upon the brick-and-mortar video industry at the moment of its disappearance. More than a simple story of an industrial rise and fall, however, this work conveys the importance of video stores to the many people who shopped and worked inside them.
