"Rubble Films is a deft and perceptive study of the most overlooked period in German film history. Superbly researched and written, this complex tale of German film culture illuminates, at times brilliantly, the much larger story of East and West Germany in the shadow of World War II."
-Timothy Corrigan, author of New German Film: The Displaced Image and The Films of Werner Herzog: Between Mirage and History
"His study deftly combines descriptive and analytic treatments of individual films, with a cogent reconstruction of their historical context."
"A primary strength of the bok is its breadth: Shandley provides a useful survey of the rubble film that addresses a wide range of genres...in doing so, he never loses sight of his analysis of the representation of history in these films."
"Shandley extensively mines German secondary sources to flesh out the fascinating picture of the "rubble films" first produced in the late 1940s....Shandley's book presents a clear argument and critical evaluation of these early film initiatives."
