Hearts and Mines: The US Empire’s Culture Industry
From Katy Perry training alongside US Marines in a music video, to the global box-office mastery of the US military-supported Transformers franchise, it’s clear that the US national security state is a dominant force in global media culture. How and why is this so?
This book covers the production, profit and power of US Empire’s culture industry — a nexus between the US state and globalizing media firms and the source of entertainments that promote US Empire as a way of life around the world.
