New: Popular Culture in Britain & America, 1950-1975

Few periods in American and British history witnessed as expressive and outspoken a literary flowering as the three decades following World War II. Beat poetry, experimental fiction, the Black Arts Movement, gay and lesbian writing, and guerrilla theater flourished amid social and political upheavals that would transform our cultures in ways unimaginable before the 1950s. Popular Culture in Britain and America, 1950-1975 constitutes an archive of primary sources that document these transformations “from the inside,” presenting manuscripts, underground publications, fanzines, photographs, press kits, posters, video and other rare materials long unavailable in digital form. If your research interests gravitate to the mid-20th century, you’ll find a great deal here to deepen your understanding of the era.
