burn it down

burn it down: power, complicity, and a call for change in hollywood by maureen ryan is an epic survey of the terribleness of the business they call show.

the entertainment industry has a reputation for liberal-ness that really falls apart when you look at it deeply. it has a complicated labor situation, as shown by the recent writers’ strike and ongoing actors’ strike. it has moved incredibly slowly to embrace diverse talent both on the creative and business sides.

it is shifting, too slowly, and i think this book helps move that along.
