Icons Of Dissent - The Global Resonance Of Che, Marley, Tupac And Bin Laden (Hardcover): Jeremy Prestholdt Icons Of Dissent - The Global Resonance Of Che, Marley, Tupac And Bin Laden (Hardcover)

The global icon is an omnipresent but poorly understood element of mass culture. This book asks why audiences around the world have embraced a small number of iconic figures and what this tells us about cross-border, trans-cultural relations since the Cold War.

Jeremy Prestholdt addresses these questions by examining one type of figure: the 'anti-system' icon. These popular icons are symbols of alienation and aspiration that have been integrated into diverse political and consumer cultures.To illustrate these points the book examines four of the most evocative and controversial figures of the past fifty years: Ernesto Che Guevara, Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur and Osama bin Laden. Each has embodied a convergence of dissent, cultural politics and consumerism, yet the popularity of each reveals the dissonance between shared, global references and locally contingent traditions.

By examining four very different figures, Icons Of Dissent offers new insights into transnational symbolic idioms, the mutability of common references and the commodification of political sentiment in the contemporary world.

This book boldly unsettles the idea of globalization as a recent phenomenon - and one driven solely by Western interests - by offering a compelling new perspective on global interconnectivity in the nineteenth century. Jeremy Prestholdt examines East African consumers' changing desires for material goods from around the world in an era of sweeping social and economic change. Exploring complex webs of local consumer demands that affected patterns of exchange and production as far away as India and the United States, the book challenges presumptions that Africa's global relationships have always been dictated by outsiders. Full of rich and often-surprising vignettes that outline forgotten trajectories of global trade and consumption, it powerfully demonstrates how contemporary globalization is foreshadowed in deep histories of intersecting and reciprocal relationships across vast distances.
