Anyone interested in gay culture or the history of dress will find this book to be essential reading.
Film and Media Studies
"From providing helpful hints for homemakers in the 1950’s, catering to the lavish lifestyles and culinary excess of the 80’s and satisfying the celeb-hungry, reality-crazed audience of the new millennium, Collins examines how far cooking programs have gone to adapt their content, style and character to both suit and define various moments in the 20th century." - TIME Magazine
Literature can be used to disseminate ideas with devastating real-life consequences. In How Bad Writing Destroyed the World, Adam Weiner spans decades and continents to reveal the surprising connections between the 2008-2009 financial crisis and a relatively unknown nineteenth-century Russian author.
Art & Visual Culture
Focusing on the role of national art galleries in continental Europe, England and Scotland, this book explores in depth the interrelationship between artistic and exhibitionary forms, as well as between power and governance in those places where the roots of modern culture were being laid most visibly.
Drama and Performance Studies
This book looks at the social and political impact of stand-up comedy in both its positive and negative forms. It demonstrates how comedy audiences allow themselves to be manipulated, and the potential harm - and material benefits - that may arise from ‘just’ being funny.
