Videoland

Author(s): Herbert, Daniel

SAC Herbert book Videoland

Description:

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.
