Teenage: The Prehistory of Youth Culture: 1875-1945

Jon Savage

In his previous landmark book on youth culture and teen angst, the award-winning England’s Dreaming, Jon Savage presented ‘the definitive history of the English punk movement’ (The New York Times). Now, in Teenage, he explores the secret prehistory of a phenomenon we thought we knew, in a monumental work of cultural investigative reporting.

Beginning in 1875 and ending in 1945, when the term teenage became an integral part of popular culture, Savage draws widely on film, music, literature high and low, fashion, politics, and art and fuses popular culture and social history into a stunning chronicle of modern life.
