The essays in this new edited collection are . . . designed to address how monstrosity has come to represent the fears that the new century has brought with it. [...] The book does itself an injustice by calling itself a "reader" when, in fact, it is more than just a collection of articles bundled together . . . The editors have clearly worked hard to present a collection of essays in such a way that the book has a through-narrative, and for that they should be congratulated. -- Shane Brown, University of East Anglia, UK * Cinema Journal * Preoccupied with zombies, vampires, and ever more unholy configurations of human body parts and consciousnesses, the 21st century is proving to be a monstrous time. Monster Culture in the 21st Century offers readers an international and interdisciplinary theoretical toolkit that can help us better understand the monstrous' magical ability to reflect and refract immense political, technoscientific, and ecological changes and anxieties. -- Carol A. Stabile, Professor, School of Journalism and Communication and Department of Women's and Gender Studies, University of Oregon, US Monster Culture in the 21st Century brings together various theoretical and methodological approaches to look critically at the trope of the monstrous as an increasingly ubiquitous mode for managing contemporary crises of identity, technology and globalization through popular media culture. As such it provides refreshing new directions for understanding `monster culture' beyond metaphor and as a necessary condition of our lives in the 21st century. * Dr. Jane Chi Hyun Park, Senior Lecturer, Department of Gender and Cultural Studies and the United States Studies Centre, University of Sydney, Australia * Monster Culture in the 21st Century stands out prominently among the wave of . . . new post-millennial studies . . . [It] succeeds as both a research guide and a classroom tool, in large part due to its expansive scope and, yet also, the unusual particular care given to its myriad topics -- John Edgar Browning, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA * Information, Communication and Society *
