Présentation de l'éditeur

Since the show's debut in 2007, Mad Men has invited viewers to immerse themselves in the lush period settings, ruthless Madison Avenue advertising culture, and arresting characters at the center of its 1960s fictional world. Mad Men, Mad World is a comprehensive analysis of this groundbreaking TV series. Scholars from across the humanities consider the AMC drama from a fascinating array of perspectives, including fashion, history, architecture, civil rights, feminism, consumerism, art, cinema, and the serial format, as well as through theoretical frames such as critical race theory, gender, queer theory, global studies, and psychoanalysis.

In the introduction, the editors explore the show's popularity; its controversial representations of race, class, and gender; its powerful influence on aesthetics and style; and its unique use of period historicism and advertising as a way of speaking to our neoliberal moment. Mad Men, Mad World also includes an interview with Phil Abraham, an award-winning Mad Men director and cinematographer. Taken together, the essays demonstrate that understanding Mad Men means engaging the show not only as a reflection of the 1960s but also as a commentary on the present day.

"Mad Men, Mad World" and my new work Mad Men Persuasion: How Don Draper & Co. Shape Your Desires (Write Well to Succeed) work both sides of the street. "Mad Men, Mad World" offers the big overview of life in the 1960s depicted on Matthew Weiner's AMC show. My work focuses on the strategies of persuasion that Don Draper & Co. used in their ad campaigns.

This collection offers 22 smart and nuanced pieces that show how something fictional often sheds light on deeper truths about moments in history.

"Mad Men, Mad World" understands the TV soap as well as anyone. Don Draper, naturally, gets a lot of attention. Who is Don? Not Thomas Rath, the hero of "The Man in the Gray-Flannel Suit." Rath had his share of secrets, but he also had a deep moral core which saved him in the end. Don, though, cannot have that core because he has given up his past. It's a terrific contrast.

This volume offers intelligent discussion of the narrow white perspective during the civil rights revolution, the changing role of women in a chauvinist society, the role of place in life and storytelling, the aesthetics of a costume drama, and a couple of the ad campaigns explored in "Mad Men."

"Mad Men, Mad World" offers a balanced and grounded approach to its subject. "MMMW" recognizes that "mad Men": is "selectively anachronistic" -- that is, it gets a lot of period details right but doesn't insist on playing the historian. At some point, drama matters more than a historian's exactitude. "MMMW" also defends "Mad Men" against the criticism that it's a smug, holier-than-thou take on the prejudices of the past.

This is a satisfying collection. maybe it's a tad academic for some readers' tastes. But if you love "Mad Men" and want to understand the intersection of popular culture and history, this is a terrific read.
