Description

The strategies of the film star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, are studied and questioned in this biograghy. Some of the questions examined in this book include: has he capitalized on his Nazi patrimnoy to portray the dark avenging macho men of his movies, while simultaneously counrting the Jewish lobby in America; has he turned his steroid record around to play it as a reformed man's fitness anthem - smiled on by President Bush who appointed him a nation's health and sports czar; and how much has he seized on other people's mockery of him - his accent, his name, his bulk - to turn it to his own self-mocking advantage? Nigel Andrews was named the Critic of the Year in the British Press Awards for 1985.
