Book Summary :

In their introduction, "Angels of History, Demons of History," the editors allude to the complex social anxieties projected into concerns about youth. Contributors examine the problems of identity, juvenile delinquency, intergenerational tensions, and downward mobility, as well as more positive aspects of youth culture (art, activism, and cyber-communities)--in the early 20th century, the World War II/postwar era, and the contemporary scene.

Book Summary :

Most pop songs are short-lived. They appear suddenly and, if they catch on, seem to be everywhere at once before disappearing again into obscurity. Yet some songs resonate more deeply—often in ways that reflect broader historical and cultural changes. In Footsteps in the Dark, George Lipsitz illuminates these secret meanings, offering imaginative interpretations of a wide range of popular music genres from jazz to salsa to rock. Sweeping changes that only remotely register in official narratives, Lipsitz argues, can appear in vivid relief within popular music, especially when these changes occur outside mainstream white culture. Using a wealth of revealing examples, he discusses such topics as the emergence of an African American techno music subculture in Detroit as a contradictory case of digital capitalism and the prominence of banda, merengue, and salsa music in the 1990s as an expression of changing Mexican, Dominican, and Puerto Rican nationalisms. Approaching race and popular music from another direction, he analyzes the Ken Burns PBS series Jazz as a largely uncritical celebration of American nationalism that obscures the civil rights era’s challenge to racial inequality, and he takes on the infamous campaigns to censor hip-hop and the radical black voice in the early 1990s. Teeming with astute observations and brilliant insights about race and racism, deindustrialization, and urban renewal and their connections to music, Footsteps in the Dark puts forth an alternate history of post–cold war America and shows why in an era given to easy answers and clichd versions of history, pop songs matter more than ever. George Lipsitz is professor of black studies and sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Among his many books are Life in the Struggle, Dangerous Crossroads, and American Studies in a Moment of Danger (Minnesota, 2001).

Book Summary :

Thoroughly researched and in tune with the culture, Hip Hop in America: A Regional Guide profiles two dozen specific hip hop scenes across the United States, showing how each place shaped a singular identity. The two volumes span the complete history of rap-from its 1970s origins to the rap battles between Queens and the Bronx in the 1980s, from the well-publicized East Coast vs. West Coast conflicts in the 1990s to the rise of the Midwest and South over the past ten years. Each essay showcases the history of the local scene, including the MCs, DJs, b-boys and b-girls, label owners, hip hop clubs, and radio shows that have created distinct styles of hip hop culture. Through its unique geographic perspective, it captures the astonishing diversity of a genre that has captivated the nation and the world.

Book Summary :

Meet Jashae Johnson. She’s well known throughout Miami, but most know her as Giovonni “Trip's” girlfriend and baby mama. They have a ghetto love story. The two of them had been together for almost twenty years. They have a love that most people would ask Jashae just how the hell does she do it? Not because love is hard, but because Trip is in prison serving a life long sentence, for a murder that he committed years ago. Then, you have Toddrick King, known in the streets as “Miami.” Women will pretty much sell their souls to be with a man like Miami. Not only is he a well-known retired boxer, but he’s handsome, rich, and he knows how to treat a woman. Two things are stopping Miami and Jashae from being together, and that’s Jashae’s love for Trip and because Miami and Trip were once friends. Then, we have Mahogany, Jashae's best friend. Such a beautiful woman, with such an ugly soul. Mahogany can literally have any man in the world that she wants, but she’s not too fond of falling in love. Well, that’s until she meets Miami’s cousin, Jabari. Will Jabari be able to change Mahogany’s outlook on love? Does Jabari even want love himself to change Mahogany’s mind on such a thing? Although this is a love story, it’s deep; it’s sad; it’s dark, it’ll make you question why certain things happen in life. For Jashae, one would think that losing her boyfriend to the system was the worst thing that could happen to her, but who would have ever thought that something else would happen in her life that would make that situation seem minor?
