This book looks at the evolution and impact of celebrity politics in the United States. It discusses how closely intertwined the worlds of politics and Hollywood have become, how celebrityhood pervades the political process—from campaigns and elections to governing, lobbying, and legislating, and the long-term implications of this trend.

Chapter topics cover media image-makers, the money machine, the celebrity presidency, activist celebrities, sports politicos, satire: the downside of celebrityhood, and public evaluations of the celebrity regime.

For anyone interested in the politics and pop culture of America.
