Editorial Reviews


One of the most sensible books I have read about the meanings and demeaning of television ... a clear-headed analysis of the Dynasty phenomenon. Gripsrud's reflections on the static and wistful academic celebrations of American television are sorely needed..
–Todd Gitlin, University of California, Berkeley

Jostein Gripsrud's study of Dynasty provides an original perspecitive on the processes and consequences of one of the main themes of our era -- the internationalization of popular culture..
–Nick Browne, University of California, Los Angeles

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being a HUGE Dynasty fan, I bought this book not really knowing what it was about. It certainly IS about Dynasty, but buyer beware...it is about Dynasty's affect on Norway's mass media market. It's rather interesting, but takes a lot of patience to get through, as I caught myself glazing over, trying to understand all the technical terms and statistics used in some passages. If you are looking for a tell-all, behind the scenes TV Book, THIS IS NOT IT! Most of the book is more about Scandanavian society than the show itself, but the author definitely sheds some interesting light on what goes on in producing and marketing a television show. This is NOT a coffee table book!
