When did those awkward, tormented creatures known as teenagers first crawl out of the primordial ooze and into American culture? Believe it or not, they didn't always exist. It was not until World War II, with grown men off fighting and grown women working in factories, that adolescents were left idle and unsupervised long enough to wreak havoc. In the forties, fifties, and sixties a new breed of youth evolved -- the juvenile delinquent -- and this state of emergency was quickly dramatized in every cultural medium. In "Teenage Confidential, " Michael Barson and Steve Heller conduct a guided to... View more info

Some beards are bushy, others are peach-fuzzy. Some are distinguished, others are scruffy. Some beards inspire love and trust (Santa's); others evoke fear and loathing (Satan's). Abe Lincoln's beard connotes patriotic devotion; Shakespeare's stands for artistic brilliance. But no matter who their wearer or what their shape, all beards have one thing in common: Crumbs get stuck in them.With facial adornments back in fashion (anointing the wearer with a veneer of virility and intellectual prowess) men of all ages will want to consider the choices presented in this useful little book.Insi...

The Huffington Post's "Let's Bring Back..." columnist, Lesley M. M. Blume, invites you to consider whatever happened to cuckoo clocks? Or bed curtains? Why do we have so many "friends" but have done away with the much more useful word "acquaintance"? All of these things, plus hot toddies, riddles, proverbs, corsets, calling cards, and many more, are due for a revival. Throughout this whimsical, beautifully illustrated encyclopedia of nostalgia, Blume breathes new life into the elegant, mysterious, and delightful trappings of bygone eras, honoring the timeless tradition of artful living along t...

Much of the slang popularly associated with the hippie generation of the 1960s actually dates back before World War II, hijacked in the main from jazz and blues street expressions, mostly relating to drugs, sex, and drinking. Why talk when you can beat your chops, why eat when you can line your flue, and why snore when you can call some hogs? You're not drunk--you're just plumb full of stagger-juice and your skin isn't pasty, it's just cafe sunburn. Need a black coffee? That's a shot of java, nix on the moo juice.
