MEDIA REVIEWS

'Idols and Celebrity in Japanese Media is a wonderful anthology that offers an overview of media culture, idols, and celebrity in Japan through intriguing case studies whose topics range from the entertainment industry to idols to otaku to the digitally created idol. The book's greatest strength is that, despite its narrow focus on Japan, the authors' insights and discussions can be applied to other countries in the global context of the ongoing intensification of capitalism and consumerism. Overall, the book provides an excellent introduction to the social, cultural, and economic issues intertwined with media culture.' - Jungmin Kwon, International Journal of Communication 8 (2014)
