A short history of celebrity by Fred Inglis ( Book )
12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Love it or hate it, celebrity is one of the dominant features of modern life-and one of the least understood. Fred Inglis sets out to correct this problem in this entertaining and enlightening social history of modern celebrity, from eighteenth-century London to today's Hollywood. Vividly written and brimming with fascinating stories of figures whose lives mark important moments in the history of celebrity, this book explains how fame has changed over the past two-and-a-half centuries. Starting with the first modern celebrities in mid-eighteenth-century London, including Samuel Johnson and the Prince Regent, the book traces the changing nature of celebrity and celebrities through the age of the Romantic hero, the European fin de siecle, and the Gilded Age in New York and Chicago. In the twentieth century, the book covers the Jazz Age, the rise of political celebrities such as Mussolini, Hitler, and Stalin, and the democratization of celebrity in the postwar decades, as actors, rock stars, and sports heroes became the leading celebrities. Arguing that celebrity is a mirror reflecting some of the worst as well as some of the best aspects of modern history itself, Inglis considers how the lives of the rich and famous provide not only entertainment but also social cohesion and, like morality plays, examples of what-and what not-to do. This book will interest anyone who is curious about the history that lies behind one of the great preoccupations of our lives

Clifford Geertz : culture, custom, and ethics by Fred Inglis ( Book )
16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first full-scale study of the work of Clifford Geertz, who is one of the best-known anthropologists in the world today. Fred Inglis situates Geertz's thought in the context of his life and times, reviewing its forty-year range." "Geertz's progress is charted in detail by his field work in Java, Bali and Morocco, as well as his work in the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. His two collections of essays, the Interpretation of Cultures and Local Knowledge, are summarized and criticized. The celebrated and controversial essay on the Balinese cockfight is defended against its critics, and in an extended conclusion, his account of the Balinese Theatre-State is, as Geertz suggests, proposed as a more adequate method for the combined study of culture and politics than the professionals' routine application of heavy-handed concepts such as 'power' and 'status'."--BOOK JACKET
Raymond Williams by Fred Inglis ( Book )
13 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his life Raymond Williams played many parts: child of the Black Mountains, inspirational adult lecturer, Cambridge professor, folk hero and guru of the Left. After his death, he remained a symbolic figure and his classic works, Culture and Society, The Long Revolution and The Country and the City continue to inspire generations all over the world. In this first major biography, Fred Inglis has spoken to those who knew this complex and charismatic man at every stage of his life, from his boyhood years in the Welsh border country to his brief years of retirement. Through their voices and his own passionate and at times combative engagement with his subject, he tells a story of a life not just for its time but for our own. After Thatcher and Reagan, after the cold war, Williams still has much to teach us about the nature of a good and just society and about the constant struggle to attain it

Life among the anthros and other essays by Clifford Geertz ( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Clifford Geertz (1926-2006) was perhaps the most influential anthropologist of our time, but his influence extended far beyond his field to encompass all facets of contemporary life. Nowhere were his gifts for directness, humor, and steady revelation more evident than in the pages of the New York Review of Books, where for nearly four decades he shared his acute vision of the world in all its peculiarity. This book brings together the finest of Geertz's review essays from the New York Review along with a representative selection of later pieces written at the height of his powers, some that first appeared in periodicals such as Dissent, others never before published." "This collection exemplifies Geertz's extraordinary range of concerns, beginning with his first essay for the Review in 1967, in which he reviews, with muffled hilarity, the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski. This book includes Geertz's unflinching meditations on Western academia's encounters with the non-Western world, and on the shifting and clashing places of societies in the world generally. Geertz writes eloquently and arrestingly about such major figures as Gandhi, Foucault, and Genet, and on topics as varied as Islam, globalization, feminism, and the failings of nationalism." "Life among the Anthros and Other Essays demonstrates Geertz's uncommon wisdom and consistently keen and hopeful humor, confirming his status as one of our most important and enduring public intellectuals."--BOOK JACKET
