Book Reviews

One of the wonderful roles we serve at The Journal of Michael Jackson Studies is providing academic reviews of prominent publications on Michael Jackson, which can be found here. These beautiful reviews serve fans, researchers and also the wonderful authors who write these books. We also involve the authors themselves in unique author interviews, with people like Joseph VogelSusan Woodward, Lisa Brisse and Zack O’Malley Greenburg.mjas companion cover

Although Jackson was vindicated all those years ago, his legacy remains very uncertain. Two decades of misinformation mean that it’s going to take a lot of hard work and focus to turn the tide. It is lovely reading about the wonderful contributions of fans, authors and content-creators to further the expansion of worldwide knowledge of, not just Jackson’s innocence but his artistry also. Our recent publication on Michael Jackson and Prince is an excellent example of this kind of work.

The Journal of Michael Jackson Academic Studies is an official academic publication, and such a wonderful way to grow and nurture the academic study of Jackson, forging new global connections and reiterating through academic essays, articles, interviews and reviews that Jackson’s artistry is worthy of study.
