520    This classic account of the nature of film music 
       aesthetics was first published in 1947. Its value comes 
       from a unique combination of talents and experience 
       enjoyed by the book's authors. Eisler's time at Hollywood 
       gave him a particular insight on the technical questions 
       which arise for composers when music is used in the 
       production of films; while Adorno was able to contribute 
       on wide aesthetic and sociological matters as well as 
       specifically musical questions. Above all, the authors 
       envisaged the book as a contribution to the study of 
       modern, industrialised culture; and, in this respect, it 
       has a particular importance to the whole area of Cultural 
       Studies.
