This book offers a reappraisal of star studies in light of the arrival of the internet and the explosion in materials such as glossy magazines and merchandise meaning that stars are visible as never before. It explores the political economy of stardom, questions of performance, the effect on stardom of convergence between the film industry and other leisure industries, and the role of audiences.
