Download or read book The Politics of Glamour written by David F. Prindle and published by Univ of Wisconsin Press. This book was released on 2012-11-01 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rarely are the off-screen lives of actors examined for evidence of deep thinking or good citizenship. Still more rarely do the internal workings of labor unions attract public scrutiny. Nevertheless, as David Prindle shows in his examination of democracy in the Screen Actors Guild, this actors’ union has for over 50 years been an arena for idealistic, yet intense and hardboiled political maneuvering. In The Politics of Glamour, readers become aware of the seriousness and political commitment displayed by people whom the general public has generally admired more for their artistic skills. After reading this account of politics among America’s screen royalty, no one could wonder about where Ronald Reagan, a former SAG president, received his political training. Besides analyzing the politics of SAG, however, the author follows a good story wherever it leads. The reader can expect to learn something about the political economy of Hollywood and the American labor movement, the value of celebrity within the acting community, the impact of technological change, and even a bit of gossip.

Download or read book Glamour written by Professor Carol Dyhouse and published by Zed Books Ltd.. This book was released on 2013-04-04 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How do we understand glamour? Has it empowered women or turned them into objects? Once associated with modernity and the cutting edge, is it entirely bound up with nostalgia and tradition? This unique and fascinating book tells the story of glamour. It explores the changing meanings of the word, its relationship to femininity and fashion, and its place in twentieth century social history. Using a rich variety of sources - from women's magazines and film to social surveys and life histories - Carol Dyhouse examines with wit and insight the history and meaning of costume, cosmetics, perfume and fur. Dyhouse disentangles some of the arguments surrounding femininity, appearance and power, directly addressing feminist concerns. The book explores historical contexts in which glamour served as an expression of desire in women and an assertion of entitlement to the pleasures of affluence, finally arguing that glamour can't simply be dismissed as oppressive, or as male fantasy, but can carry celebratory meanings for women.

Download or read book Glamour Globals written by Baaghil; Mossalli; Ashour; Khashogji and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2013-01-09 with total page 76 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The nouveau riche. The petit bourgeouisie. The well-to. The affluent. The conspicuous consumers. The people whom we might call the “Glamour Globals.” History, literature, and sociology unfortunately repeat the all-too-often objectionable tale of people who suddenly come into money, and seem to have no better purpose for that money than to flaunt it, requiring ever more money so that they may be show-offs and of course they long to acquire ever more—more money, more goods—and seemingly with no higher purpose than to display that they have these things. Money, for such people, is power and status, not to do something positive with, but to have, end of story. The tale of conspicuous consumption—which refers to using buying decisions as a form of displaying one’s social status—and of its close cousin “invidious consumption”—which is displaying one’s wealth through material possessions with the specific intention of invoking envy in others—is inevitably replaying itself again around the globe, as the globalized economy takes root in new regions and among people of all kinds.

Download or read book Celebrity and Glamour in Contemporary Russia written by Helena Goscilo and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2010-10-04 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is the first book to explore the phenomenon of glamour and celebrity in contemporary Russian culture, ranging across media forms, disciplinary boundaries and modes of inquiry, with particular emphasis on the media personality. The book demonstrates how the process of ‘celebrification’ in Russia coincides with the dizzying pace of social change and economic transformation, the latter enabling an unprecedented fascination with glamour and its requisite extravagance; how in the 1990s and 2000s, celebrities - such as film or television stars - moved away from their home medium to become celebrities straddling various media; and how celebrity is a symbol manipulated by the dominant culture and embraced by the masses. It examines the primacy of the visual in celebrity construction and its dominance over the verbal, alongside the interdisciplinary, cross-media, post-Soviet landscape of today’s fame culture. Taking into account both general tendencies and individual celebrities, including pop-diva Alla Pugacheva and ex-President and current Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, the book analyses the internal dynamics of the institutions involved in the production, marketing, and maintenance of celebrities, as well as the larger cultural context and the imperatives that drive Russian society’s romance with glamour and celebrity.
Download or read book The Glamour Boys written by Chris Bryant and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2020-11-12 with total page 448 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A STORY OF UNSUNG BRAVERY AT A DEFINING MOMENT IN BRITAIN'S HISTORY 'Superb' Stephen Fry 'Thrillingly told' Dan Jones 'Fascinating' Neil MacGregor 'Astonishing' Peter Frankopan We like to think we know the story of how Britain went to war with Germany in 1939, but there is one chapter that has never been told. In the early 1930s, a group of young, queer British MPs visited Berlin on a series of trips that would change the course of the Second World War. Having witnessed the Nazis' brutality first-hand, these men were some of the first to warn Britain about Hitler, repeatedly speaking out against their government's policy of appeasing him. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain hated them. Branding them 'the glamour boys' to insinuate something untoward about them, he had their phones tapped and threatened them with deselection and exposure. At a time when even the suggestion of homosexuality could land you in prison, the bravery these men were forced to show in their personal lives gave them extraordinary courage in public. Undaunted, they refused to be silenced and when war came, they enlisted. Four of them died in action. And without them, Britain would never have faced down the Nazis. A Guardian Book of Autumn 2020

The only problem, no one told me, and now the king wants me dead.
