    This collection of twelve essays approaches the relationship between Hollywood and scandal from a fresh perspective: the contributors consider some of the famous transgressions that shocked Hollywood and its audiences during the 20th century and explore the changing meaning of scandal over time. Arranged chronologically, from the Thaw-White affair in 1906 to Wag the Dog and political scandal in the late 1990s, the essays show how Hollywood scandals have evolved relative to changing moral and social orders.
