Madonna's life and career has generated numerous books and academic material.

The life and work of American singer and songwriter Madonna has generated various academic studies.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] Since the 1980s a variety of writers, journalists, biographers, essayists and cultural critics; as well as intellectuals, sociologists, philosophers, congressmen, playwrights, artists and others have reviewed her work in multiple publications, books and essays, dedicated to her total or partially and distributed by music and academic publishing.[a]

The justification the creation of studies and bibliography focused on Madonna and validity that they have is a subject of debate among scholars and academics. These studies analyzed several topics, but mostly Madonna Studies involved in the study of gender, sexuality, and the mass media. One of her advocates is Annalee Newitz saying that to "the university communities Madonna occupies a definite place in the curriculum of post-Western cultures in universities worldwide".[8] Professor and media scholar John Fiske explained that all cultural studies focus primarily on finding a hidden meaning within a social aspect —for example, a Madonna video— so it takes a more comprehensive analysis to provide an appropriate context —in this case, on the work of singer—.[9] Similarly, the American psychologist Susan Fiske, noted that "cultural studies about Madonna only analyze texts and how your audience uses the material to relate to the social construction that is Madonna.[10] French academic Georges Claude Guilbert, who has written three books about Madonna, said in one of them "is a bit excessive admiration imply that scholars have for Madonna is the result of a common hostility to censorship". Given her constant social provocations, often with political overtones, the novelist Andrew O'Hagan said that "Madonna is like a heroic opponent of cultural and political authoritarianism of the American "establishment".[11]

Many authors have written more than a book about Madonna and these have been published in many languages, including English, German, French, Dutch, Finnish, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, Polish, Scottish Gaelic and more. According to journalist Annalee Newitz, "The academics in the fields of theology to queer studies have written literally volumes about what Madonna's fame means for gender relations, American culture, and the future".[8] In this way, many authors, including Matthew Rettenmund (Encyclopedia Madonnica; 1995), agree that Madonna is "the world's greatest artist" while others classify her as "the most powerful or famous woman in the world".[12][13][14][15]

Some works released includes Madonna: An Intimate Biography (2002) by J. Randy Taraborrelli, Madonna (2001) by Andrew Morton, Madonna: Like an Icon (2007) by Lucy O'Brien, Life with My Sister Madonna (2008) by her brother Christopher Ciccone, Madonna: Bawdy and Soul (1997) authoring of Karlene Faith, Desperately Seeking Madonna: In Search of the Meaning of the World's Most Famous Woman (1993) by journalist Adam Sexton and more. Resulting sometimes in positive or mixed reviews from entertainment critics and academics and some becoming in bestseller.
