Hip: The History (P.S.), 9780060528188 (0060528184), Harper Perennial, 2005

Hip: The History is the story of how American pop culture has evolved throughout the twentieth century to its current position as world cultural touchstone. How did hip become such an obsession? From sex and music to fashion and commerce, John Leland tracks the arc of ideas as they move from subterranean Bohemia to Madison Avenue and back again. Hip: The History examines how hip has helped shape -- and continues to influence -- America's view of itself, and provides an incisive account of hip's quest for authenticity.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

He lives in Manhattan's East Village with his wife, Risa, and son, Jordan.
