Reviews

The Many Faces of Sacha Baron Cohen does not skimp on scholarship, style, or wit. Robert A. Saunders's writing is lively and entertaining and makes a persuasive case for Sacha Baron Cohen as a case study of the complicated negotiations between local and global cultures. -- Eliot Borenstein, professor, New York University
A must-read for many aspiring satirists, branding experts, and researchers alike. . . . Sacha Baron Cohen, the Kazakhs, and people around the world should be grateful to the author for explaining the Borat saga in a scholarly, yet enlightening and entertaining, manner. -- Roman Vassilenko, Chief Inspector of the Secretariat of the Secretary of State of Kazakhstan
The Many Faces of Sacha Baron Cohen [is] a smart, informative, and crisply-written little book that may leave the reader wanting a bit more....The Many Faces of Sacha Baron Cohen is a valuable political history of what its author calls a 'global minstrel show'. * Southwest Journal Of Cultures Cinema, February 2009 *
The author displays razor-sharp analysis, masterful use of the English language, and encyclopedic knowledge all the way through the endnotes. This is, by all measures, a superb first book by a very promising writer, and one can only hope that it is followed by many more. * Journal Of Global Change and Governance, Summer 2009 *
A thoroughly detailed exploration of Cohen's explosive comedy. Robert A. Saunders dissects each button pushed, taking an approach that's as careful as Cohen's is improvised. A smart read deserving of a lot of 'respek.' -- Michael Musto, author of La Dolce Musto: Writings by the World's Most Outrageous Columnist and contributor to The Village Voice
The author displays razor-sharp analysis, masterful use of the English language, and encyclopedic knowledge all the way through the endnotes.
