This newly expanded and revised second edition of That's the Joint! brings together the most important and up-to-date hip-hop scholarship in one comprehensive volume.

Review:

"Hip-hop, like all living artistic expression, constantly regenerates, turning innovation into convention, ‘datcourse’ into discourse, vernacularisms into commodity or the precious art object. As this second edition of the groundbreaking That’s the Joint! shows, hip-hop scholarship has done the same: moving, grooving, breaking, and sampling the best ideas from an interdisciplinary community theater of writers whose insights chart a vibrant sector of the American musical landscape."

--Guthrie P. Ramsey, Jr., Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Term Professor of Music, University of Pennsylvania

"A standard bearer text in Hip Hop Studies. Sweeping in scope and rigorous in analyses."

--T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Distinguished Professor of African American Diaspora Studies and French, Vanderbilt University

"I'm going use this book when I teach US history to high school students from now on. In the past decade there's been a mania for all the music and fashions of the early 1980's, which none of the aficionados are old enough to remember. It would be wonderful for them to learn where it all originated."

--Ben Wolinsky, Blogger on Olive Branch United

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Taylor & Francis | The Hip-Hop Studies Reader | Before Thats the Joint I spent countless hours making photo-copies of essays and articles on hip hop for my students. When Thats the Joint dropped it changed everything. It took hip hop studies to the next logical level and, hopefully, with the second edition Forman and Neal will take hip hop studies to an even higher level. Thats the Joint! , indeed, it is the sure shot! -- Reiland Rabaka, Department of Ethnic Studies, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA " Thats the Joint! stands as the seminal Hip Hop studies volume. It is comprehensive in scope, incorporating works from the leading scholars, journalists and practitioners in the genre. Moreover, it treats the subject in a rigorous academic manner, while making the readings accessible to a broader audience." - Melina Abdullah, California State University, Los Angeles, USA That's the Joint!: The Hip-Hop Studies Reader brings together the best-known and most influential writings on rap and hip-hop from its beginnings to today. Spanning more than 30 years of scholarship, criticism, and journalism, this unprecedented anthology showcases the evolution and continuing influence of one of the most creative and contested elements of global popular culture since its advent in the late 1970s. Think of it as "Hip-Hop 101." This newly expanded and revised second edition of That's the Joint brings together the most important and up-to-date hip-hop scholarship in one comprehensive volume. Presented thematically, the selections address the history of hip-hop, identity politics of the "hip-hop nation," debates of "street authenticity," gender, revolutionary politics, aesthetics, technologies of production, hip-hop as a cultural industry, and much more. movement. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 1315 gr | 254x178x41 mm | 672 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780415873260
