Inhaltsangabe: The latest edition of the 6 volume Gale series "Bowling, Beatniks and Bell-Bottoms" covers the popular culture of the 20th Century and first decade of the 21st Century. It is a cross-disciplinary source for junior and high school students and teachers, public librarians and general researchers who need a single, consistent reference to explore and analyze the social trends, events, and people that have impacted contemporary history. Organized chronologically, each volume covers a span of two decades. For each decade, there is a general overview entry that covers the defining event of time period as well as some quick fun facts "At a Glance." The following topics are covered for each decade: Commerce, Fashion, Film and Theater, Music, Print Culture, Sports and Games, TV and Radio, and The Way We Lived. Full-Color photos.

Features: Index; Tables of Contents: by decade, alphabetical, by topic; Reader's Guide; Timeline; For More Information; "Where to Learn More" bibliography.

From Booklist: An attempt to span the whole of pop culture and contextualize its influence on American society, the 850 articles included in this six-volume set cover a myriad of fascinating topics—ranging from Betty Boop, the invention of ballpoint pens, and Saran Wrap to spring break, Hurricane Katrina, Napster, and So You Think You Can Dance? A solid update, the second edition of this fascinating set adds a sixth volume devoted to the first decade of the twenty-first century, and supplements the previous edition’s black-and-white illustrations with the inclusion of approximately 400 color photos. As in the prior edition, each volume begins with a complete alphabetical list of entries and a time line of the twentieth and early twenty-first century and closes with a comprehensive index. Coverage of each decade opens with a concise overview and an “At a Glance” sidebar that outlines what Americans read, said, wrote, and listened to and popular figures of the time. These features, as well as the extensive cross-referencing of topics within entries, make this resource exceedingly simple for students to navigate. The signed articles, ranging in length from 150 to 1,000 words, are arranged alphabetically within nine topic categories: “Commerce,” “Fashion,” “Film and Theater,” “Food and Drink,” “Music,” “Print Culture,” “Sports and Games,” “TV and Radio” (where applicable), and “The Way We Lived.” Though the individual articles are brief, they are informative and engagingly written, and they provide the historical context for each particular trend or fad examined. Each article concludes with a list of resources for further research on individual topics that students will, more than likely, find necessary to supplement their research. A bibliography of print and web resources related to the decades covered and geared toward students precedes the index in each volume. A worthy edition to any middle-school library reference collection. Public libraries may want to consider as a supplemental purchase. Grades 6-12. --Magan Szwarek
