CHOICE Review

Joining Andrew Hammond's Pop Culture in North Africa and the Middle East (CH, Feb'18, 55-1973) and Pop Culture in Asia and Oceania, ed. by Jeremy Murray and Kathleen Nadeau (CH, Mar'17, 54-3042), in ABC-CLIO's "Entertainment and Society around the World" series, the present volume covers music, film, television, literature, sports, social media, video games, and fashion on the European continent. Despite the fact that the book covers such a broad swath, the 128 thematically ordered entries are cogent and concise. There is almost literally something here for everyone: Celtic punk, J. K. Rowling, Belgian comics, spaghetti Westerns, YouTube viral sensations, Grand Theft Auto, Louis Vuitton, Monty Python, and so on. Entries are a few pages in length and contributed by six international authors, most of them professors of language and literature. The contributors place their subjects in contemporary sociopolitical context and provide brief critical analyses, complete with parenthetical references. Each entry ends with further reading, and there is a selected bibliography at the end of the volume. As one might expect from a volume devoted to popular culture, the content is not merely informative but fun. For example, there is an appendix of top 10 lists, among them the top ten Swedish dating sites. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates; general readers. --Michael Patrick Tosko, University of Akron
