Jon Savage wrote one of the definitive books on English punk, "England's Dreaming" and remains at the forefront of music writers, both impassioned and insightful. In this ambitious, engrossing book, he turns his attention to the development of the idea of adolescence ( a term coined by psychologist G. Stanley Hall) and the emergence of the teenager as a social force. Starting in the Victorian era and going up through World War II, Savage primarily concentrates on Britain, Germany and America, whose youth culture spread across the world. Witty, informative and astute, this is an essential read for those who work with youth or who seek to understand those crazy kids and where they come from.
