Hip-Hop in Europe

Cultural Identities and Transnational Flows

Edited by: Sina A. Nitzsche, Walter Grunzweig

This is the first collection of essays to take a pan-European perspective in the study of hip-hop. How has it traveled to Europe? How has it developed in the various cultural contexts? How does it reference the American cultures of origin? The book's 21 authors and artists provide a comprehensive overview of hip-hop cultures in Europe, from the fringes to the centers. They address hip-hop in a variety of contexts, such as class, ethnicity, gender, history, pedagogy, performance, and (post-) communism.
