Adapted from the Original Book Description:

Critics and audiences often judge films, books and other media as "great" --but what does that really mean? This collection of new essays examines the various criteria by which degrees of greatness (or not-so) are constructed--whether by personal, political or social standards--through topics in cinema, literature and adaptation. The contributors recognize how issues of value vary across different cultures, and explore what those differences say about attitudes and beliefs.
