Selling Seattle by James Lyons
Book DescriptionStarbucks, Microsoft, World Trade Organisation, Grunge music, all concepts that have become synomymous with Seattle. Selling Seattle is the first book to examine the impact of Seattle on contemporary culture, and to account for the city's rapid rise to fame and influence over the last decade. Interdisciplinary in approach, it looks closely at the city's representation on film and television, and in journalism and literature, and also considers the ways in which Seattle phenomena such as Microsoft, Starbucks and Grunge worked to establish the city as a symbol of urban desire and fantasy in the 1990s. The book is of interest to anyone who seeks to understand the contemporary American city, and the powerful trends that shape the urban landscape and its place in the popular imagination.

The volume explores Vice's combination of disparate influences (MTV, film noir, soap opera, action films) as well as the social and cultural moments when it burst onto the network.
