Summary This first English-language book on Loach brings together seven original essays on major aspects of his work, an interview with the director, as well as comprehensive and unique reference material. The contributions examine Loach's ongoing concerns with social and political issues in Britain, questions of censorship, the way in which he develops film narratives around public issues, his domestic morality tales, and the formal and aesthetic questions raised by his particular approach to filmmaking
