Contrary to popular notion (and the city's street and welcome signs, which feature an iconic rose bloom), Roseville is not named after the flower but after Denison Rose, a hero of the War of 1812. His son William Rose was named the first postmaster in 1836. Roseville incorporated as a village in 1926 and as a city in 1958. Known as a "bedroom community" because of its location halfway between Detroit and Mount Clemens, the city reached its maximum population in 1970. Today, Roseville is experiencing a major commercial boom that includes a renovation of Macomb Mall, one of the first malls in the country.

Masculinity in Contemporary New York Fiction

Author: Peter Ferry

Masculinity in Contemporary New York Fiction is an interdisciplinary study that presents masculinity as a key thematic concern in contemporary New York fiction. This study argues that New York authors do not simply depict masculinity as a social and historical construction but seek to challenge the archetypal ideals of masculinity by writing counter-hegemonic narratives. Gendering canonical New York writers, namely Paul Auster, Bret Easton Ellis, and Don DeLillo, illustrates how explorations of masculinity are tied into the principal themes that have defined the American novel from its very beginning. The themes that feature in this study include the role of the novel in American society; the individual and (urban) society; the journey from innocence to awareness (of masculinity); the archetypal image of the absent and/or patriarchal father; the impact of homosocial relations on the everyday performance of masculinity; male sexuality; and the male individual and globalization. What connects these contemporary New York writers is their employment of the one of the great figures in the history of literature: the flâneur. These authors take the flâneur from the shadows of the Manhattan streets and elevate this figure to the role of self-reflexive agent of male subjectivity through which they write counter-hegemonic narratives of masculinity. This book is an essential reference for those with an interest in gender studies and contemporary American fiction.

Cult Collectors examines cultures of consumption and the fans who collect cult film and TV merchandise. Author Lincoln Geraghty argues that there has been a change in the fan convention space, where collectible merchandise and toys, rather than just the fictional text, have become objects for trade, nostalgia, and a focal point for fans’ personal narratives. New technologies also add to this changing identity of cult fandom whereby popular websites such as eBay and ThinkGeek become cyber sites of memory and profit for cult fan communities. The book opens with an analysis of the problematic representations of fans and fandom in film and television. Stereotypes of the fan and collector as portrayed in series such as The Big Bang Theory and films like The 40 Year Old Virgin are discussed alongside changes in consumption practices and the mainstreaming of cult media. Following this, theoretical chapters consider issues of gender, representation, nostalgia and the influence of social media. Finally, extended case study chapters examine in detail the connections between the fan community and the commodities bought and sold. Topics discussed include: The San Diego Comic-Con and the cult geographies of the fan convention Hollywood memorabilia and collecting cinema history The Star Wars franchise, merchandising and the adult collector Online stores and the commercialisation of cult fandom Mattel, Hasbro and nostalgia for animated eighties children’s television

"We Are the Champions", "I Want to Break Free", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "We Will Rock You" oder "Another One Bites the Dust" - die großen Hits der Band Queen kennt jeder. Doch wie wurde aus dem 1946 in Sansibar geborenen Beamtensohn Farrokh Bulsara der schillernde Weltstar Freddie Mercury? Sein Privatleben hielt er stets weitestgehend aus der Öffentlichkeit heraus. Lesley-Ann Jones war als junge Rockjournalistin einige Jahre mit Queen auf Tour und ist seitdem eng mit der Band befreundet. Für dieses Buch bereiste sie alle wichtigen Stationen in Mercurys Leben und sprach mit seinen Weggefährten. Zahlreiche Fotos runden den Text ab. So entsteht ein sehr persönliches und intimes Porträt eines der größten Rockstars aller Zeiten. Queen verkauften insgesamt über 320 Millionen Tonträger, ihre Greatest Hits sind mit weltweit über 32 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren eines der erfolgreichsten Alben aller Zeiten. Freddie Mercury wird von seinen Fans auch 25 Jahre nach seinem Tod noch genauso geliebt und gefeiert wie zu Hochzeiten seiner Band. »Genau die Würdigung, die Mercury sich gewünscht hätte« The Spectator Lesley-Ann Jones war lange mit Queen auf Tour und sprach mit über 100 Weggefährten
