Boston: South End Press, 1984.
First edition. 168 pp. Original illustrated wraps. Very Good with bumped corners, slight crease to front cover, former owner's last name written on bottom edge. An early history of hip-hop culture and music in America, photo-illustrated in black-and-white. Among the book's strengths, Toop covers a lot of the DJ culture of the late '60s and '70s that other, later hip-hop histories have glossed over, as well as continuities between the then nascent hip-hop scene and earlier cultures of doo-wop, funk, and soul.
