Full Description

'...a wonderfully scholarly, readable and useful treat on the perils of labelling culture.' Helen Lederer, Comedienne What is Counterculture? It's an alternative lifestyle... The ideas that spark a revolution... A movement that changes the world... The first comprehensive exploration of counterculture in the UK from Asian arts to alternative comedy, from Gay Lib to eco-warriors, from punk to Feminism and much much more: this new collection of essays celebrates the incredible originality of British post-war culture. British art, film, theatre, dance, literature and music have attracted international recognition from the Angry Young Men to the Sex Pistols to Grayson Perry. Now gaming, the internet and social media enable creative communities to flourish and either fight for social justice or just be entertained. Can we find the creative inspiration to succeed in a post-capitalist future?
