Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

To most Americans, Hollywood activism consists of self-obsessed movie stars promoting their pet causes, whether defending marijuana legalization or Second Amendment rights. There's some truth in that stereotype, and in this book you'll find the close personal friends of Fidel Castro, the wannabe cowboys, and the ever-ubiquitous Barbra Streisand. But Citizen Hollywood makes a far more serious case--that Hollywood's influence in Washington runs deeper and affects the country's government more than most of us imagine.

Celebrity activism exerts a subtle power over the American political process, and that pressure is nothing new. Through money, networking, and image making, the movie industry has shaped the way that politics works for nearly a century. It has helped to forge a culture that is obsessed with celebrity and spectacle.

In return, politicians have become part of the fabric of Hollywood society and cater to the wishes of their new-found friends and fund-raisers.

Using original archival research and exclusive interviews with stars, directors, producers, and politicians from both parties, Timothy Stanley's Citizen Hollywood shows that the only way to understand the image-obsessed, volatile politics of modern America is to understand the hidden history of Hollywood's influence on Washington.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fairly thorough examination on the media's influence on society and vice versa. 20 août 2014

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The author of Citizen Hollywood delivers a good case for how Hollywood is connected with American politics today. He does go back in American history and most of his conclusions seem valid. An attempt is made to be even handed in his criticism of both parts, though he does explore the attitudes in the Obama administration which have brought more scandal to this office. However, I cannot say that all in this book is unknown. I found a fair amount of information to be based on stories that I have heard before in other books and from the media. Some times the author's facts disagree with other fact based books on people he writes about. One example is his story of how Richard Nixon courted support from John Wayne. However, in an excellently detailed bio of The Duke, newly published, there is documented information that John Wayne was the one who sought out Richard Nixon wanting to be associated with a rising presidential candidate. That is a small thing, but enough to concern this reader about the accuracy of other information. I have no problem recommending this book, but advise readers to not take every example described as being the whole truth. The reader needs to be objective and to take a good look and the footnote index to determine for themselves how legitimate sources may be.

IMHO, I believe the author strays off the mark when it comes to the influence of BIG business and Hollywood stars of TODAY. Like BO, we can go back to the Crusades to try to put current events into perspective. But, we are dealing with the here and now! You'll be surprised who are the in- and -out-of closet Hollywood shakers and movers. Still, an excellent and informative read.

The author does a credible job of making his case that Hollywood is more motivated by profit than by ideology and is therefor not unduly attempting to influence society and voters. After reading the book, I remain unconvinced. The book is interesting, entertaining, and informative. I enjoyed reading it.

Couldn't concur more with other reviews of this claptrap that the author has an agenda. Really. Like you couldn't tell from the description of the book?

But let's cut to the chase, because here's how you can tell if you'll like it: if you believe, as the author does as per new uninformative editorials he's been kind enough to pen, that Obama's ruining America because he doesn't build up American exceptionalism enough to make Mr. Stanley happy (this guy bills himself as a historian??????????), and if you're quite sure Obama's not a Christian (but since you have absolutely nothing to back that up you can't say that directly but it's okey-dokey to insinuate that in public forums until the cows come home), you'll want to get your copy of this asap.

Because then, just like Mr. Stanley, you can add dissing Hollywood to what's obviously a sadly limited repertoire.

Historian? Huh. Guess the day jobs for comedians were taken.
