Synopsis: Alice Echols has never shied away from controversy. Long before it was fashionable, she wrote searing critiques of antiporn feminism. Her subsequent books about the 1960s are trenchant and provocative, and written with unflinching honesty. Now she maps an alternative history of contemporary American culture, taking on such subjects as hippies, gay/lesbian and women's liberation, disco and the racial politics of music, and artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell and Lenny Kravitz. Echols upends many of our bedrock assumptions about American culture since the 1950s, challenging in particular the notions that the '60s represented a total rupture with the past and that the '70s marked the end of meaningful change.

Book Description: Echols upends many of our bedrock assumptions about American culture since the 1950s, particularly the notion that the '60s represented a total rupture and that the '70s marked the end of meaningful change. In far-ranging essays on hippies, gay/lesbian and women's liberation, disco and the racial politics of music, and musicians as diverse as Joni Mitchell and Lenny Kravitz, this maverick thinker maps an alternative history of American culture from the '50s through the '90s.

Book Description Columbia University Press, New York City, New York, 2002. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. First Paperback Printing. "It's hard to put down a book that opens with the 12969 Woodstock motto: 'Eat Shit! Ten Million Flies Can't be Wrong!' and proceeds from there to describe the humor, the pathos, the clumsiness, and the courage of a generation that has been much written about, but seldom understood. Alice Echols is that rarest of breeds: a great historiasn and as great writer. There are no dull moments-and much wisdom-in her brilliantly eclectic collection of essays and interviews. She captures, as no one else has, the dizzingly absurd complexity of American culture and cultural politics in our times." {David Nasaw}. This book has 303 pages. The text contains NO inrternal marks whatsoever. Bookseller Inventory # 060007
