The word celebrity generally conjures up images of young stars in a highly digitised world - how did we get to this and has it changed much? Surely, it must have been different in the 1700s? The eclectic, yet strangely complimentary contributions to this volume give you an insight in the facets and types of celebrity that actually begin to make this notion of the famous and celebrated somewhat clearer. You will be surprised at the amount of links and themes that run through a seemingly disconnected collection of works. Is there something intrinsic in this notion of celebrity? Is it a purely social construction or actually some people's destiny? Can it be both? As you read through this volume and navigate the ways in which celebrity plays out, one thing is certain: your opinions will be challenged, which will ensure you re-evaluate how you see the celebrity.
