The management and labor culture of the entertainment industry. In popular culture, management in the media industry is frequently understood as the work of network executives, studio developers, and market researchers—“the suits”—who oppose the more productive forces of creative talent and subject that labor to the inefficiencies and risk aversion of bureaucratic hierarchies. However, such portrayals belie the reality of how media management operates as a culture of shifting discourses, dispositions, and tactics that create meaning, generate value, and shape media work throughout each moment of production and consumption. Making Media Work aims to provide a deeper and more nuanced understanding of management within the entertainment industries. Drawing from work in critical sociology and cultural studies, the collection theorizes management as a pervasive, yet flexible set of principlesdrawn upon by a wide range of practitioners—artists, talent scouts, performers, directors, show runners, and more—in their ongoing efforts to articulate relationships and bridge potentially discordant forces within the media industries. The contributors interrogate managerial labor and identity, shine a light on how management understands its roles within cultural and creative contexts, and reconfigure the complex relationship between labor and managerial authority as productive rather than solely prohibitive. Engaging with primary evidence gathered through interviews, archives, and trade materials, the essays offer tremendous insight into how management is understood and performed within media industry contexts. The volume as a whole traces the changing roles of management both historically and in the contemporary moment within US and international contexts, and across a range of media forms, from film and television to video games and social media.

Die stetig steigende Relevanz von Sportsponsoring und die damit einhergehenden Milliarden-Budgets generieren einen größer werdenden Rechtfertigungsdruck der Sponsoringverantwortlichen gegenüber der Unternehmensführung.

Er entwickelt einen Ökonomisierungsansatz zur Bewertung von Naming Rights von Sport- und Veranstaltungsstätten sowie Events. Dabei erfolgt zum einen die Aufarbeitung des aktuellen theoretischen und empirischen Forschungsstandes zu Sponsoring und Naming Rights, zum anderen die praktische Anwendung des Ansatzes anhand eines Fallbeispiels.

"Reuss geht es darum, die Geschichte der Silberpfeile von Mercedes-Benz und Auto Union in der NS-Zeit darzustellen. Er lässt dabei vor allem einen Schluss zu: Rennsport war in diesen Jahren niemals unpolitisch... Der Mythos der 'Silberpfeile' lebt - verdrängt wird jedoch ihre Geschichte. Bisher kaum bekanntes Material aus den Firmenarchiven von Mercedes-Benz und Auto-Union. Ein einmaliges Porträt des Rennsports während der Nazi-Zeit. Hervorragend recherchiert, glänzend erzählt und reich bebildert: Dem Journalisten Eberhard Reuss gelingt ein einmaliges Porträt der Anfänge des deutschen Rennsports, in dem er die Verstrickungen der Autoindustrie mit dem NS-Regime aufzeigt und die Mythen entzaubert, die sich um Hitlers Rennschlachten ranken. Mit vielen unveröffentlichten Fotos aus Firmen- und Privatarchiven. Die Nazis förderten den Rennsport unmittelbar nach der Machtergreifung mit immensen Summen. Die Vorstände der Autofirmen taten das Ihre, diesen Geldfluss nie versiegen zu lassen. Grand-Prix-Rennen waren das ideale Vehikel, die vermeintliche deutsche Überlegenheit weltweit zu demonstrieren. Und im Inland galt es, die Massen zu gewinnen. Bernd Rosemeyer, damals neben Max Schmeling das grösste Sportidol der Deutschen, war SS-Mitglied, Hermann Lang gehörte der NSDAP an, während Manfred von Brauchitsch und Hans Stuck ihre schon vor 1933 geknüpften Kontakte zu nutzen wussten. Mehr als fünf Jahre rasten die 'Silberpfeile' konkurrenzlos von Sieg zu Sieg: zum letzten Mal am 3. September 1939 in Belgrad, drei Tage nach dem deutschen Überfall auf Polen. 'Hitlers Rennschlachten' ist die bislang einmalige Aufarbeitung eines dunklen Kapitels des deutschen Motorsports mit einem Ausblick auf die bruchlos fortgeführten Karrieren so manches Managers, Funktionärs und Sportidols nach 1945"--(From publisher's web site)

After 20 years of glorious ‘failure’, the best-loved team in Formula One is consigned to the history books, and it deserves one of its own. Minardi had a successful time in Formula Two until the tiny Italian outfit was ready to hit the big time in 1985. It somehow survived in F1’s shark-infested waters as bigger teams (Lotus, Arrows, Tyrrell) were dragged under. They have a truly international fan-base and are the ‘second team’ of most F1 devotees. Minardi is held in such affection as everyone loves the plucky underdog – Minardi’s annual budget would have lasted one month at the other Italian team up the road. Yet, from its plant in Faenza near Bologna, Minardi has produced cars that qualify, sometimes score points and often lead the way in their technology. Gian Carlo Minardi also developed a reputation as a fabulous talent-spotter – Fisichella, Trulli, Webber and the youngest ever World Champion Alonso all started their F1 careers with Minardi. For the last five years, Minardi was owned by controversial Australian tycoon Paul Stoddart. Cast as David against the Goliath of F1’s governing body, Stoddart constantly hit the headlines as he tried to get a more equal share of the sport’s billions. Ultimately, he failed and Red Bull has now bought the team. Despite a petition of 15,000 names, the Minardi name has vanished from the F1 grid and true motorheads miss it. This is the one and only inside account, with exclusive, comprehensive interviews with bosses, drivers and engineers. 140 unique photos complete this revalationary tale.
