Editorial Reviews

'A first-rate book, highly original and grounded in the top scholarship. The writing is clear and lucid, the examples compelling, and Redmond's coverage of categories, themes, and personalities surrounding celebrity is masterful. Succinct but comprehensive in coverage, this accessible, up-to-date and useful book is well placed to become the text of choice both for university courses and a broader public.' - Douglas Kellner, UCLA, USA
