MEDIA REVIEWS
Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
A welcome addition at the intersection of popular culture and international relations that offers a sustained analysis of international political economy through film and literature. An important text that students will relate to, learn from, and enjoy. -- Cynthia Weber, Lancaster University, United Kingdom
A remarkable survey of important issues in the nuts and bolts of contemporary capitalism as seen through the double lens of film and fiction. Lipschutz's range is very impressive in this carefully structured exploration of what makes our economic world tick. Essential reading for students of both popular culture and recent film history. -- Tom Zaniello, author of The Cinema of Globalization
