This book looks beyond the common label of 'Ronald Reagan's America' to chart the complex intersection of cultures in the 1980s. In doing so it provides an insightful account of the major cultural forms of 1980s America - literature and drama; film and television; music and performance; art and photography - and influential texts and trends of the decade: from White Noise to Wall Street, from Silicon Valley to MTV, and from Madonna to Cindy Sherman. A focused chapter considers the changing dynamics of American culture in an increasingly globalised marketplace.

About the Author:


Graham Thompson is Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of Nottingham

Review:

A fresh angle on cultural works recent enough to exist in the collective memory, but also now distant enough to warrant analytical consideration within a discrete historical framework.

(Paul Giles, University of Oxford)
