Hjort argues that Stanley Kwan's contribution in Center Stage is to develop an approach to nonfiction filmmaking that is realist without being naïve. The value of the film's reflexive dimension, Hjort shows, has nothing to do with poststructuralist skepticism but with the compelling manifestation of a communicative model that serves as an alternative to hierarchical and authoritarian modes of social organization.

Exploring political communication as theater, Center Stage shows how American civic culture is both enriched and diminished by the ways journalists organize narratives about civic life. This up-to-date text focuses on issues such as politics as representational theater, economic forces shaping political media, and growth of new media. Covering contexts from the presidency and Congress to political art, Center Stage suggests additional pathways for imagining our national life, including Internet-supported activism and innovative uses of documentary film.

Grand palaces of culture, opera theaters marked the center of European cities like the cathedrals of the Middle Ages. As opera cast its spell, almost every European city and society aspired to have its own opera house, and dozens of new theaters were constructed in the course of the "long" nineteenth century. At the time of the French Revolution in 1789, only a few, mostly royal, opera theaters, existed in Europe. However, by the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries nearly every large town possessed a theater in which operas were performed, especially in Central Europe, the region upon which this book concentrates. This volume, a revised and extended version of two well-reviewed books published in German and Czech, explores the social and political background to this "opera mania" in nineteenth century Central Europe. After tracing the major trends in the opera history of the period, including the emergence of national genres of opera and its various social functions and cultural meanings, the author contrasts the histories of the major houses in Dresden (a court theater), Lemberg (a theater built and sponsored by aristocrats), and Prague (a civic institution). Beyond the operatic institutions and their key stage productions, composers such as Carl Maria von Weber, Richard Wagner, Bedrich Smetana, Stanislaw Moniuszko, Antonín Dvorák, and Richard Strauss are put in their social and political contexts. The concluding chapter, bringing together the different leitmotifs of social and cultural history explored in the rest of the book, explains the specificities of opera life in Central Europe within a wider European and global framework.
