Gezim Alpion explores the significance of Mother Teresa to the mass media, to celebrity culture, to the Church and to various political groups. A fascinating section explores the ways different vested interests have sought to appropriate her after her death, and also examines Mother Teresa's own attitude to her childhood and to the Balkan conflicts in the 1980s and 1990s.
