Quick Overview

Through a combination of classic pieces and contemporary writings, this title examines the proliferation of the study of celebrity, and the significance and importance of celebrity in contemporary culture. Taking a broad definition of the concept of celebrity, it also discusses the emergence of CEOs as corporate business celebrities.


From the new celebrity culture that has emerged from reality television and the Internet, to the paparazzi-filled endgame of Princess Diana and the bizarre trials and tribulations of Michael Jackson, The Celebrity Culture Reader documents the significant role that celebrities occupy in contemporary culture. Combining classic essays and contemporary writings, The Celebrity Culture Reader investigates the cultural implications of this complex contemporary phenomenon.
