Summary
"Jon Savage, author of the landmark book on the punk era, England's Dreaming, launches this monumental work of cultural investigative reporting in 1875, when the first bestselling memoir of teenage angst was published and the first teenage mass murderer was condemned to life in solitary confinement. He ends in 1945, with the death of the century's most famous teenager, Anne Frank. In between, we visit the Land of Oz and roam the streets of New York, London, Paris, and Berlin with hooligans, Apaches, and other young gangs." "This is the secret prehistory of a phenomenon we thought we knew. Implicit in it is the ongoing clash of generations, as each new set of teens makes its mark on an often hostile world. Drawing widely on film, music, literature high and low, fashion, politics, and art, always with an eye to the unexpected example, Savage fuses popular culture, politics, and social history into a stunning chronicle of modern life."--BOOK JACKET
