David Curtis' book is an engaging survey of British avant-garde film and video history lavishly illustrated with loads o' descriptions of films and makers. However if you want an alternative and radical history you could try my book 'Subversion:
The Definitive History of Underground Cinema' which just got published by Wallflower Press. A central thread of the book is the exclusion of underground cinema from avant-garde history and state funding. Check out http://www.wallflowerpress.co.uk. There's a launch show this Thursday in London, come along if you're around.
