Nina is a ballerina in a New York City ballet company. Her life, like most in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. She lives with her mother Erica, a former ballerina who exerts a suffocating control over her. When artistic director Thomas Leroy decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: new dancer Lily, who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side - a recklessness that threatens to destroy her

This little book explores the role of US media in foreign policy, not only at the present moment, but with an eye to the future. Written by a veteran Hollywood film executive and an internationally known columnist in foreign affairs, it explains how American movies, TV shows, and pop music provide the images of America to the rest of the world, and the rest of the world to Americans; includes discussions of such issues as the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Danish newspapers, Tibetan monks censored out of Chinese TV news reports only to show up on YouTube, and the Vatican's assault on the Da Vinci Code movie; and argues that Hollywood is a key player in the "deep coalition" required to support a "smart power" foreign policy and build a global cultural infrastructure that will make the world safe for interdependence.--From publisher description
