Phaidon Press, London: 2007. Reprint Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
Takes the reader on a visual tour of the far-flung and fleeting, beautiful and bizarre manmade events, revealing that contemporary life is increasingly influenced by the idea of spectacle. Featured here are a wide range of international spectacles, from the Olympic Games to the Running of the Bulls in Spain, the Holi Festival in India, the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in New York. Also included are twenty interviews with influential cultural figures such as art critic Dave Hickey, film director John Waters, prizefighter Muhammad Ali, theater director Julie Taymor, Las Vegas developer Steve Wynn, architects Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, and an art essay by New York Times critic Herbert Muschamp. Spectacle documents those public performances and happenings that gavanize crowds of people and, if only for a brief moment, forge a bond among strangers.
