Teenage

The Creation of Youth Culture by Jon Savage [$29.95]

by Rob Horning

27 November 2007

 

Not content to track the explosion of youth culture from the ‘50s on, Savage goes back to its roots in the 19th century, examining how the connotations of teenagerdom we now take for granted emerged from a wide-ranging variety of sources, including sensationalist journalism, opportunistic marketing ploys, an expanded youth labor market, accelerated fashion cycles and fascist propaganda. A comprehensive study of the invention of adolescence.
