Since the show's debut in 2007, Mad Men has invited viewers to immerse themselves in the lush period settings, ruthless Madison Avenue advertising culture, and arresting characters at the center of its 1960s fictional world. Mad Men, Mad World is a comprehensive analysis of this groundbreaking TV series. Scholars from across the humanities consider the AMC drama from a fascinating array of perspectives, including fashion, history, architecture, civil rights, feminism, consumerism, art, cinema, and the serial format, as well as through theoretical frames such as critical race theory, gender, queer theory, global studies, and psychoanalysis. In the introduction, the editors explore the show's popularity; its controversial representations of race, class, and gender; its powerful influence on aesthetics and style; and its unique use of period historicism and advertising as a way of speaking to our neoliberal moment. Mad Men, Mad World also includes an interview with Phil Abraham, an award-winning Mad Men director and cinematographer. Taken together, the essays demonstrate that understanding Mad Men means engaging the show not only as a reflection of the 1960s but also as a commentary on the present day. Contributors.

TRILOGY BOOK FOUR includes three recent books from my twenty years of writing. Being a philosophical book-writer, dealing with world-view and value systems, I get to take time doing something that is considered the work of men of leisure. While it may not be the toughest of jobs, I assure you that most days I am worn out from just thinking about it. And can I conclude anything yet? Sometimes I think I am going in reverse! Reflections of a Mad, Mad World is the title of the book, and it is the headline work followed by two more books, Remaking Michael and Forty Songs. All three were written with you (the reader and fellow life-mate) in mind. If you wonder about the madness and chaos that in the world today, and what you can do about it, maybe you will benefit from reading Reflections of a Mad, Mad World (Book One). This work addresses the nutty, whacky world in which we live, and suggests ways to cope. If you are trying to turn over a new leaf, and need some insight and direction, then Remaking Michael (Book Two) might be for you. In my personal travels through life, I have been remade over and over again its fun! There are always two sides to every coin. My book, Forty Songs, takes on 20 negative points of view, and counterbalances them with 20 more points that are positive. You be the judge as you weigh the evidence when the matter of Life itself is placed on trial. I am hopeful that this three-books-in-one volume will be rewarding and beneficial for you. On my web site, HowISeeTheWorld.com, questions and answers about Life that continue to crop up in the human mind are addressed. Come to the site and see what I am talking about!

Terry Gilliam has been making movies for more than forty years, and this volume analyzes a selection of his thrilling directorial work, from his early films with Monty Python to The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnussus (2009). The frenetic genius, auteur, and social critic continues to create indelible images on screen--if, that is, he can get funding for his next project. Featuring eleven original essays from an international group of scholars, this collection argues that when Gilliam makes a movie, he goes to war: against Hollywood caution and convention, against American hyper-consumerism and imperial militarism, against narrative vapidity and spoon-fed mediocrity, and against the brutalizing notion and cruel vision of the "American Dream."
