This book discusses the specific forms of celebrity that exist in China today and explores how China's celebrity culture incorporates aspects of global, capitalist practices into local Chinese systems. It covers a wide variety of fields, including: film, literature, popular music, political, and sports stardom; celebrity CEOs; and the relationship between the media and celebrity. It seeks to understand why the production and consumption of celebrity has become such a common feature of life in recent decades.
