The Seventies: The Age of Glitter in Popular Culture


Edited by Shelton Waldrep The 1970s rather than the 60s is the defining decade of millennial anxieties, according to Waldrep (English, U. of Southern Maine). Fourteen essays by academics, journalists, and KC of KC & the Sunshine Band re/define the 70s through commentary on its New Journalism, movements (from the Black Panthers to Jonestown), pop culture genres, fashion as compulsive artifice, the gay 70s, and the era\u27s music. Includes b&w illustrations of 1970s fashions (some being recycled today), gender-bending stars David Bowie and Sandra Bernhard, and films such as Wayne\u27s World . Indexed solely by proper name.
