Overview

Hot Stuff: Disco and the Remaking of American Culture by Alice Echols

"Remarkable. . . . Carried along by prose that is as sleek and slinky as its subject."—Christine Stansell, University of Chicago
Alice Echols reveals the ways in which disco transformed popular music, propelling it into new sonic territory and influencing rap, techno, and trance. She probes the complex relationship between disco and the era's major movements: gay liberation, feminism, and African American rights. You won't say "disco sucks" as disco thumps back to life in this pulsating look at the culture and politics that gave rise to the music.
