Detail - David Bowie: Critical Perspectives examines in detail the many layers of one of the most intriguing and influential icons in popular culture. This interdisciplinary book brings together established and emerging scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds, including musicology, sociology, art history, literary theory, philosophy, politics, film studies and media studies. Bowie’s complexity as a singer, songwriter, producer, performer, actor and artist demands that any critical engagement with his overall work must be interdisciplinary and wide-ranging in its scope. The chapters are organised around the key themes of ‘textualities’, ‘psychologies’, ‘orientalisms’, ‘art and agency’ and ‘performing and influencing’ in Bowie’s work. This comprehensive book contributes a great deal to the study of popular music, performance, gender, religion, popular media and celebrity.

Detail - DAVID BOWIE: LIFE ON MARS: A David Bowie Biography Whenever one looks back on the life of musician, actor, fashionista, queer icon and generally larger-than-life artist David Bowie, the word "chameleon" always comes up. It is a title well-earned; in the span of a five-decade career - he was active from the 1960s right up to his death in 2016 - he has gifted the world not only with mind-blowing music but delivered it with an unprecedented theatricality that encompassed both public performance and private persona. He was a chameleon indeed, for like the lizard species that can change colors according to temperature, to make social signals or for camouflage, David Bowie showed an uncanny ability to package and re-package himself in order to stay relevant and to survive the cutthroat world of entertainment. But Bowie wasn't just a masterful and committed executor of constant change - he was a visionary creator of characters that were distinct, nuanced and unforgettable. He didn't just take cues from the outside world and adapt; he was internally-driven. For all of its good and bad, he was restless to create, had a wealth of visions to share, conversations to start... ultimately, a world to change. His every evolution created revolution. Ziggy Stardust? Aladdin Sane? The Thin White Duke? They were all iconic products of the same gifted (sometimes tortured) mind. They were all different and yet they were all, somehow, him: compelling, original, curious, courageous, mercurial, ethereal, alien, extraordinary... David Bowie.
