Insightful essays on the genesis of subcultures from new wave and yuppies to graffiti and rap.

From the birth of hip-hop culture in the South Bronx to the influence of nightclubs in shaping the modern art world in New York, to the creation of the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, a generation of countercultural events and icons are brought to life in this personal account of the life and experiences of an investigative reporter and former editor-in-chief of High Times. Evidence from cutting-edge conspiracy research including the real story behind the JFK assassination and the Franklin Savings and Loan cover-up is presented. Quirky personalities and compelling snapshots of life in the 1980s and 1990s emerge in this collection of vignettes from a landmark figure in journalism.

Steven Hager is the author of Adventures in Counterculture, Art After Midnight, and Hip Hop. He is a former reporter for the New York Daily News and the Creative Director of High Times.
