Summary:
From deep within the New York hip-hop scene, author and b-boy Joe Schloss takes participant/observer fieldwork to its extreme. The first serious study of b-boying, the pre-eminent form of hip-hop dance commonly known as "breakdancing," Foundation: B-boys, B-girls and Hip-Hop Culture in New York holds to its name, presenting a truly foundational study of the core concepts in the history, practice, and pedagogy of the dance form. The book delivers a powerful new paradigm for the study of hip-hop culture and of popular culture more broadly, and promises to become a seminal text in hip-hop scholarship and dance theory.
