Description: Since the show's debut in 2007,Mad Menhas invited viewers to immerse themselves in the lush period settings, ruthless Madison Avenue advertising culture, and arresting characters at the center of its 1960s fictional world.Mad Men, Mad World is a comprehensive analysis of this groundbreaking TV series. Scholars from across the humanities consider the AMC drama from a fascinating array of perspectives, including fashion, history, architecture, civil rights, feminism, consumerism, art, cinema, and the serial format, as well as through theoretical frames such as critical race theory, gender, queer theory, global studies, and psychoanalysis.In the introduction, the editors explore the show's popularity; its controversial representations of race, class and gender; its powerful influence on aesthetics and style; and its unique use of period historicism and advertising as a way of speaking to our neoliberal moment.Mad Men, Mad World includes an interview with Phil Abraham, an award-winningMad Mendirector and cinematographer. Taken together, the essays demonstrate that understandingMad Menmeans engaging the show not only as a reflection of the 1960s but also as a commentary on the present day.Contributors.
