I think these are all invented. Either that or google is WAY behind.
EVERY title is co-authored, moreover by one film/video scholar and one
art scholar (Gidal and Foster, McEvilley and Rodowick). Each title
indicates the merging of two disciplines, usually film/video/media
studies and art history (hence the "from this...to that" or "this and
that" pattern to the titles). And I'm not sure I see Scott MacDonald
doing something on network theory...
Still, I'd read any of these phantom books.
