SHE IS A FASHION ICON WITH A LUST FOR FAME. HE IS POSSIBLY THE MOST FAMOUS ATHLETE ON THE PLANET. Together they are one of the most loved -- and hated -- pairs on Earth. This sensational, highly addictive biography delves beneath the Beckhams' glossy, glamorous facade to expose the real Posh and Becks behind the headlines and the hype. Celebrity biographer Andrew Morton, hailed for his insightful, in-depth coverage of luminaries such as Princess Diana and Madonna, explores in detail how David and Victoria Beckham followed their passions -- football and fame -- to become two of the most recognizable people in the world. From their individual childhood stories of relentlessly pursuing their dreams to achieving fame together on an international level, Posh and Becks have earned their unofficial titles as the "King and Queen of Popular Culture," and they never disappoint their fans -- or the tabloids -- when it comes to making news. Their whirlwind courtship, "royal" wedding, alleged affairs, and family struggles have been lived out under the glare of flashbulbs, which they seem to simultaneously court and shun as they attempt to balance their personal lives with their public personas. With up-to-date coverage and commentary on all things Beckham, including David's disappointing stint at Real Madrid and the family's relocation to Los Angeles, Posh & Becks lays bare the truth behind the tabloids on this fascinating couple.

From Bill and Hilary and Posh and Becks, the power couple has become a feature of modern life, an emblem of the media age. The phenomenon itself is much older, however. Take Elizabeth and Essex, Catherine the Great and Grigory Potemkin, or Antony and Cleopatra - perhaps the most famous power couple of them all. Covering two millennia and four continents, Mary Abbott joins the paparazzi. She exposes the origins of each partner in power, how they came together, what drove their relationships, who else was involved and how they ended. The cast of duos is familiar, their names for ever linked together in the popular imagination: Ferdinand and Isabella, Victoria and Albert, Edward and Mrs. Simpson, Burton and Taylor, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, Nelson and Winnie Mandela, Charles and Diana.

His iconic goals live on in the memory, from the way he announced himself to the world as Manchester United's golden boy by scoring from inside his own half, to the spectacular injury-time free kick against Greece which secured England's 2002 World Cup qualification.But at the heart of public affection for 'Golden Balls', there is more than just an appreciation of his football skills. An ambassador for UNICEF, Beckham was instrumental in promoting London's 2012 Olympic Games bid and his starring role in the opening ceremony was a fitting reward for tireless hard work. Moreover, he pledged his entire 2013 salary from Paris Saint-Germain to a children's charity.Now that he has finally retired from football, the time is right to tell the definitive story of the ultimate East End boy made good. This is the inspiring account of how David Beckham - sports star, global icon and loving family man - has taken the world by storm.

From the catwalk to the shopping mall, from the big screen to the art museum, fashion plays an increasingly central role in contemporary culture. Fashion Cultures investigates why we are so fascinated by fashion and the associated spheres of photography, magazines and television, and shopping. Fashion Cultures: * re-addresses the fashionable image, considering the work of designers from Paul Smith to Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan * investigates the radicalism of fashion photography, from William Klein to Corinne Day * considers fashion for the 'unfashionable body' (the old and the big), football and fashion, and geographies of style * explores the relationship between fashion and the moving image in discussions of female cinema icons - from Grace Kelly to Gwyneth Paltrow - and iconic male images - from Cary Grant to Malcolm X and Mr Darcy - that have redefined notions of masculinity and cool * makes a significant intervention into contemporary gender politics and theory, exploring themes such as spectacle, masquerade, and the struggle between fashion and feminism.

Fame

One of the most distinctive cultural phenomena of recent years has been the rise and rise of fame. In this book, Mark Rowlands argues that our obsession with fame has transformed it. Fame was once associated with excellence or achievement in some or other field of endeavour. But today we are obsessed with something that is, in effect, quite different: fame unconnected with any discernible distinction, fame that allows a person to be famous simply for being famous. This book shows why this new fame is simultaneously fascinating and worthless. To understand this new form of fame, Rowlands maintains, we have to engage in an extensive philosophical excavation that takes us back to a dispute that began in ancient Greece between Plato and Protagoras, and was carried on in a remarkable philosophical experiment that began in eighteenth-century France. Somewhat like contestants on a reality TV show, today we find ourselves, unwittingly, playing out the consequences of this experiment.
