Cutting? Scratching? Mixing? What do these have to do with music? In hip-hop, everything.

Hip-Hop: A Short History tells the story of how a movement that began in the neighborhoods of the Bronx, New York, grew to become a major musical, cultural, political, and philanthropic force all over the world.

Learn how slavery and the civil rights movement helped lead to the birth of hip-hop. Discover graffiti's role in hip-hop, and the movement's first stars-the DJs. Readers will also learn how hip-hop evolved with technological breakthroughs. Hip-Hop: A Short History shows how the genre extends far beyond the music scene to religion, fashion, crime, and violence. Many hip-hop artists feel a responsibility to others in the world, and A Short History tells that story as well.
