張隆溪 著

這本小書的目的不僅在於展示東西方在觀念和主題表現上的契合,而且還要提出一個更強的觀點,即只有從東西方比較研究跨文化的視角,才可能獲得某些批評的洞見。 如果不超越單一文學傳統有限的視野,我們就不可能有開闊的眼光,來縱覽人類創造力的各種表現和無窮的可能性;而我們一旦跨越文化差異的鴻溝,有了開闊的眼光,再回過頭去反觀許多文學作品,就會發現有些東西我們過去竟然沒有留意到,也毫無批評的意識。

A Companion to Television is a magisterial collection of original essays that chart the history of television from its inception to the present day. Over thirty leading scholars across the humanities and social sciences look at television scholarship as it responded to technological, institutional, and aesthetic changes around the world.

The essays cover a myriad of topics and theories that have led to television's current incarnation, and predict its likely future. From technology and aesthetics, television's relationship to the state, televisual commerce, texts, representation, genre, internationalism, and audience reception and effects, A Companion to Television is an invaluable reference for understanding the significance of television in the modern and postmodern world.

一九七八年,香港電影界湧現一批新銳導演,有許鞍華、徐克、嚴浩、譚家明、方育平等。他們當時的年齡平均不超過三十歲,都先在電視台實戰磨練兩、三年,繼而不約而同地投身電影工業。短短數年間,這批新頴的作品,以銳不可擋的氣勢,在電影圈掀起一股巨浪,為正處於低潮的電影業注射了強心劑,開拓了前所未見的新局面。當時媒體稱之為「新浪潮」。「新浪潮」的出現,不僅完成了香港電影本土化的過程,更在整體上提升了香港電影的品質,在香港以至華人地區的電影發展史上均為關鍵的一頁。

本書是現時所見最全面探究「新浪潮電影」的學術專著。作者兼備電影人及學者雙重身份,以豐富的史料及客觀的態度,以香港七十年代社會、政治、文化為切入點,綜合新浪潮電影的崛起、發展和歷史,並討論電視發展與電影的血緣關係,新浪潮諸君電視時期及電影作品的內容分析、思想層面探索、風格特徵與美學上的成就,以及對整體香港電影的深遠影響。

可以把再分析理解為一種形式的調查研究,不過在這種研究中,調查對象是一些研究報告而不是人。這需要提出一種編碼表,需要收集到由多項研究報告構成的一個樣本或總體,其中的每一項研究都要被認真地閱讀它的編碼員“訪談”,並對有關其特徵和定量結果的信息進行編碼。然後依據對常規統計技術的特定修正技術來分析出現的結果,以便探究、描述在所選擇的一系列研究的各項結果中出現的模式。
