Martin Shingler presents the mother volume for Palgrave's Film Stars series in three easily-navigable chapters in which he provides a summative and instructive account of star studies for today's film student. Via a critical evaluation of the work of leading film scholars, he provides a convincing argument for how this important area of film studies has evolved. Building on this, he offers some new directions for star scholarship, and ends by offering the film student a useful set of themes and issues for his or her own investigation. Star Studies is the perfect companion for the student who wishes to foster further research on stardom across a wide range of contexts, from national cinemas, to mainstream and marginal cinemas, to different historical periods and beyond.
