Fictional television and American politics

From 9/11 to Donald Trump

First Edition

Jack Holland

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This is the first book in International Relations to extensively analyze fictional television. That will make the book particularly appealing to a student audience.
  • I have previously published a monograph on the War on Terror, a textbook on international security, and two edited books on Obama>'s foreign policy. Of all my articles, however, the most controversial has been a recent one on beer. This book furthers the same cause, expanding the boundaries of the discipline to incorporate popular culture.
  • The book is written to appeal to academics, students, and the public (fans of the shows). It will go straight to paperback to reach as wide an audience as possible
  • I pitched a book on TV and US politics before I knew Trump would be a thing... I expected to write about Hillary Clinton. Trump has made this a particularly urgent book.
