From two distinguished academics, Stars: The Film Reader brings together key writings and new perspectives on stars and stardom in cinema including coverage of stars and star systems from Europe and Asia as well as Hollywood, such as Mario Lanza, Oprah Winfrey and Roseanne Barr.

Including contributions from top scholars such as Richard Dyer, the book addresses questions of production, labour and circulation, and examines neglected areas of study such as the Avant-Garde star, the non-American stars, and the question of ethnicity.
Grouped in thematic sections, the articles explore key issues and developments in the study of stardom, providing a comprehensive overview of stardom across the world and in different genres and media.
