First published to tie-in with the Royal Court Theatre's production in April 2003, with a cast including Alexander Delamere, Victoria Gay, Fiona Glascott and Rosamund Pike, this is the newly revised version of award-winning Terry Johnson's classic play. A media lecturer and his female prot?g? find some deteriorated Hitchcock footage. It would appear they had discovered some early rushes but what film were they for and who is the mysterious blonde? Hitchcock Blonde is not a play about Alfred Hitchcock, though he may make a cameo appearance. Of the less familiar characters, one is likely to amuse, the other will behave appallingly in a theatrical film noir of genius, lust, death and voyeuristic obsession. 'On the face of it, Hitchcock Blonde is a play about Alfred Hitchcock and women, about sex and desire, and what happens when you have either without the other. It is also a detective story, a biographical fantasy, an intellectual comedy. . . a play about life in films and films in life, about predators and victims?' Sunday Times

For Tory Johnson, weight was always an issue; although she felt ashamed of how she looked, Tory could never find the will to change. When a network executive warned her that if she didn't lose weight her television career could be in jeopardy, Tory experienced something profound: A Shift. She knew she didn't just want to change, she needed to change. The Shift begins with this eye-opening incident and follows Tory on her weight-loss journey. Tory creates a plan, makes a list of things she is willing to sacrifice, and teaches herself the realities of self-discipline. With disarming honesty, she shares her experience of overcoming the inevitable challenges along the way. In the process, she becomes not just healthier but happier--a shift that impacts every facet of her life. For anyone who has struggled to make a big life change, The Shift offers valuable lessons and inspiration for taking charge once and for all. Good Morning America contributor Tory Johnson is all about helping women make great things happen. Tory made the shift from employee to entrepreneur and built two multi-million-dollar businesses after a painful firing. Now, after a second major shift--losing more than sixty pounds in a year--Tory is on a mission to help others change their thinking and achieve a better life. A New York Times bestselling author and contributing editor to Success, Tory lives in New York with her husband and their teenage twins.

The battle for the White House following the election of November 7, 2000, was one of the major media spectacles in American history. From the uncertainty of election night to Al Gore's concession to George W. Bush's acceptance of the mantle of president-elect, Douglas Kellner demonstrates why the media was culpable in the theft of the presidency, ultimately bringing to power one of the most right wing administrations in American history. By applying critical social theory, cultural studies, and media criticism to buttress his arguments, Kellner concludes that Election 2000 reveals a crisis in contemporary American democracy. A final chapter critically dissects the first 100 days of the Bush presidency, which is emerging as one of the most reactionary in history.

For the inaugural book in our Critical Adventures in New Media series, Douglas Kellner elaborates upon his well known theory which explores how media spectacle can be used as a key to interpreting contemporary culture and politics. Grounded in both cultural and communication theory, Kellner argues that politics, war, news and information, media events (like terrorist attacks or royal weddings), and now democratic uprisings, are currently organized around media spectacles, and demonstrates how and why this has occurred. Rooting the discussions within key events of 2011 - including the war in Libya, the Arab Uprisings, the wedding of William Windsor to Kate Middleton, the killing of Osama bin Laden, and the Occupy movements - The Time of the Spectacle makes a highly relevant contribution to the field of media and communication studies. It offers a fresh perspective on the theme of contemporary media spectacle and politics by adopting an approach that is based around critical social and cultural theory. This series gives students a strong critical grounding from which to examine new media.

Douglas Kellner's Media Spectacle and the Crisis of Democracy: 9/11, the War on Iraq, and Election 2004 investigates the role of the media in the momentous political events of the past four years. Beginning with the role of the media in contested election of 2000, Kellner examines how corporate media ownership and concentration, linked with a rightward shift of establishment media, have disadvantaged the Democrats and benefited George W. Bush and the Republicans. Exploring the role of media spectacle in the 9/11 attacks and subsequent Terror War in Afghanistan and Iraq, Kellner documents the centrality of media politics in advancing foreign policy agendas and militarism. Building on his analysis in Media Spectacle (Routledge 2003), Kellner demonstrates in detail how conflicting political forces ranging from Al Qaeda to the Bush administration construct media spectacles to advance their politics. Two chapters critically engage the role of the media in the buildup to the Iraq war and the media-centric nature of Bush's Iraq invasion and occupation. Final chapters delineate the role of the media in the highly contested and significant 2004 election campaign that many believe to be one of the key political struggles of the contemporary era. Criticizing Bush's unilateralism, Kellner argues for a multilateral and cosmopolitan globalization and the need for democratic media to help overcome the current crisis of democracy in the United States.

As seen on Hardball with Chris Matthews on MSNBC President Donald J. Trump possesses a great sense of history and himself. A model statesman, he tweets every thought, and more. With one exception, he doesn’t suffer fools lightly. Generations of schoolchildren will memorize these rubies of wisdom from President Trump. This little red book captures history on the fly: insights from the leader of the free world. Sample quotes: I’m, like, a really smart person. It has not been easy for me; and you know I started off in Brooklyn; my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars. The Bible means a lot to me, but I don’t want to get into specifics. I will absolutely apologize sometime, hopefully in the distant future -- if I’m ever wrong. Everybody that’s hit me so far has gone down. The wall will go up and Mexico will start behaving. I get along with everybody. I'll be the great unifier of all. While in politics it is often smart to send out false messages... The President’s words are preserved here?both as a public service and as a keepsake. Unfiltered. Unabridged. Unauthorized. Unbelievable.
