Description
 
The story of how American pop culture has evolved throughout the 20th century to its current position as world cultural touchstone. How did hip become such an obsession? From sex & music to fashion & commerce, John Leland tracks the arc of ideas as they move from subterranean bohemia to Madison Avenue & back again. He examines how hip has helped shape -- & continues to influence -- America’s view of itself, & provides an incisive account of hip’s quest for authenticity. “A sweeping, analytical look at what it means to be keenly aware of the next big thing.” “A thoroughgoing analysis of that uniquely American anti-establishment posture known as hip.” Photos & illustrations.
