Help me find books on film history by decade.

I'm looking for good books detailing the history of film by decade-- as in a book on 1940's Hollywood, the 60's and the French New Wave, 1970's New Hollywood (in that case Easy Riders, Raging Bulls might be a good suggestion).

My goal is to accumulate great books on everything from 1910's or 20's cinema until, well, as close to now as possible (are there any truly good books on 90's or 00's?).
I'm looking for both specialized topics (decade important movements, countries, styles) and books with a more broad focus (film in the 20's, 30's, 60's etc.)
I'm not against text books if they're well regarded but I'm more interested in something a little more... readable.
