Blockbusters and Trade Wars : Popular Culture in a Globalized World

Blockbusters and Trade Wars: Popular Culture in a Globalized World

By Chris Wood, Peter Grant
$29.95




The unparalleled global distribution of books, television programs and other cultural products would seem to augur well for the diversity of ideas and creative expression. Yet ever more of this flow is concentrated in the hands of fewer giant corporations, significantly American controlled, whose agenda is not pluralism but profit.

Clearly written, impeccably researched and passionately argued, Blockbusters and Trade Wars focuses upon the market dynamics that drive ever-greater audiences to "blockbuster" films, TV programs, books and recording artists-at the expense of independent, alternative and increasingly necessary national voices.
