Anglo-American culture is marked by a gladiatorial impulse: a deep cultural fascination in watching men fight each other. The gladiator is an archetypal character embodying this impulse and his brand of violent and eroticised masculinity has become a cultural shorthand that signals a transhistorical version of heroic masculinity. Frequently the gladiator or celebrity fighter - from the amphitheatres of Rome to the octagon of the Ultimate Fighting Championships - is used as a way of insisting that a desire to fight, and to watch men fighting, is simply a part of our human nature. This book traces a cultural interest in stories about gladiators through twentieth and twenty-first-century film, television and videogames.

She’d never wanted for anything and had adored her father, but her dream was to become a teacher and move somewhere out west. If there was one thing that prevented her from dreaming, it was her father. He was a New Yorker through and through and the world beyond New York ceased to exist. He thought Alex would one day marry a nice New York boy and live somewhere in Brooklyn. Alex’s mother had left when she was two after falling in love with a guy who predicted that one day “wine would be big.” He was right, and they’d settled in northern California and had joined the ranks of the very wealthy. Alex also inherited a stepbrother named Thom that she rarely saw but disliked just the same. When her mother offered her a job in the company business, Alex decided to try it for a year. The salary was great, but the thought of finally seeing the world appealed to her the most. She’d been dreaming of foreign lands her entire life. What she didn’t expect was to have to work closely with a stepbrother who had a penchant for business and an even better penchant for love.
