Tradition holds that teenagers, as we think of them, were born in the 1950s as rockers and beatniks. In fact, all the basic tenets of postwar teen life-from consumer passions to emotional unrest-had been in place years before that. Opening in America in the 1890s, Teenage is the untold story of the era of ferment, folly, experimentation, and rebellion-from England's Bright Young Things of the 1920s to Germany's Wandervogel-that allowed the "Teen Age" to separate itself from the rest of society forever. In a monumental work of cultural investigative reporting, Jon Savage draws widely on film, music, literature high and low, fashion, politics, and art, and fuses popular culture, politics, and social history into a stunning chronicle of modern life.
