Why Arnold Matters: The Rise of a Cultural Icon артикул 1909a.

How Arnold Schwarzenegger has shifted the entire American cultural and political landscape, how he--and we--got there, and why we all should care After nearly thirty years in the public eye, Arnold Schwarzenegger's rise to fame and fortune--and statesmanship--represents a celebrity the likes of which we've never seen before As co-authors овакц and longtime collaborators Blitz and Krasniewicz argue in this humorous but heady book, it is not just a matter of his transformation from bodybuilder to megastar to politician Nor is his governorship of California just a matter of another actor assuming the position Instead, at the beginning of the 21st century, "Arnoldness" has spread into every corner of our culture More than a name, more than a spectacular career, he has become a set of ideas--an ultramodern take on the quintessential American dream Having followed the cult of Arnold for twenty years, Blitz and Krasniewicz are uniquely qualified to illuminate his growing hold on our collective imagination As an adjective, as a metaphor, as an easy reference point for anyone talking about things tough, forceful, and successful, they'll explain exactly why Arnold matters--and for better or worse, richer or poorer, America may never be the same Автор Майкл Блитц Michael Blitz.  Издательство: Basic Books, 2004 г Твердый переплет, 224 стр ISBN 0465037526.
