Book DescriptionIn Celebrity , Chris Rojek attempts to make sense of celebrity and notoriety in contemporary society. The book examines why people like Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Hitler and Jerry Springer impress themselves so powerfully on the public mind. Rojek argues that celebrity culture is an integral element in the conduct of everyday life, and like the myths of the Gods in ancient society, celebrities provide us with role models and examples for the conduct of our own lives. He also examines the dark side of celebrity, which drives people to any lengths to achieve fame or notoriety.
