Welcome to the online resources accompanying Celebrity Culture and the American Dream by Karen Sternheimer. Using examples from the first celebrity fan magazines of 1911 to the present, Celebrity Culture and the American Dream considers how major economic and historical factors shaped the nature of celebrity culture as we know it today. The book explains how and why Hollywood celebrities can help shape our understanding of American society, the changing nature of the American Dream, and the relationship between class and culture.
