Teenage : the creation of youth culture by Jon Savage( Book )
36 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and German and held by 1,921 libraries worldwide
Teenagers--as we have come to define them--were not, journalist Savage tells us, born in the 1950s of rockers and Beatniks, when most histories would begin. Rather, the teenager as icon can be traced back to the 1890s, when the foundations for the new century were laid in urban youth culture. This cultural history charts the spread of the American ideal of youth through England and Europe and around the world. From Peter Pan to Oscar Wilde, Anne Frank to the Wizard of Oz, Savage documents youth culture's development as a commodity and an industry from the turn of the last century to its current driving force in the global economy. Fusing film, music, literature, diaries, fashion, and art, this epic cultural history is a surprising chronicle of modern life sure to appeal to pop culture fans, social history buffs, and anyone who has ever been a teenager.--From publisher description

Punk : chaos to couture by Andrew Bolton( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 459 libraries worldwide
Since its origins in the 1970s, punk has had an explosive influence on fashion. With its eclectic mixing of stylistic references, punk effectively introduced the postmodern concept of bricolage to the elevated precincts of haute couture and directional ready-to-wear. As a style, punk is about chaos, anarchy, and rebellion. Drawing on provocative sexual and political imagery, punks made fashion overtly hostile and threatening. This aesthetic of violence - even of cruelty - was intrinsic to the clothes themselves, which were often customized with rips, tears, and slashes, as well as studs, spikes, zippers, D-Rings, safety pins, and razor blades, among other things. This extraordinary publication examines the impact of punk's aesthetic of brutality on high fashion, focusing on its do-it-yourself, rip-it-to-shreds ethos, the antithesis of couture's made-to-measure exactitude. Indeed, punk's democracy stands in opposition to fashion's autocracy. Yet, as this book reveals, even haute couture has readily appropriated the visual and symbolic language of punk, replacing beads with studs, paillettes with safety pins, and feathers with razor blades in an attempt to capture the style's rebellious energy. Focusing on high fashion's embrace of punk's aesthetic vocabulary, this book reveals how designers have looked to the quintessential anti-establishment style to originate new ideals of beauty and fashionability

The England's dreaming tapes by Jon Savage( Book )

"In The England's Dreaming Tapes, Jon Savage has gone back to the source to recreate, in original interview form, the extraordinarily disparate and contentious personalities who emerged in the mid-'70s as the harbingers of what became known as punk." "Here in unexpurgated form is the story of a generation that changed the world in just a few months in 1976. It's the story of London - from the Kings Road and Soho to Ladbroke Grove and outer suburbia - and the story of Steve Jones, Glen Matlock, Paul Cook and Johnny Rotten; four young men whose talents combined to create the most incendiary rock band of all time." "In interviews with all the major figures of the time - including all four original Sex Pistols, Joe Strummer, Chrissie Hynde, Jordan, Siouxsie Sioux, Viv Albertine, Adam Ant, Leee Black Childers, Howard Devoto, Pete Shelley, Syl Sylvain, Debbie Wilson, Tony Wilson and Jah Wobble - Jon Savage has produced a book huge in scope, vision and generosity of perspective." "The England's Dreaming Tapes will surely become the final word and the must-have oral history of the music, fashion and attitude that changed the way we look at ourselves and the world forever."--Jacket
