Editorial Reviews

"Hip Hop Underground, the first book-length ethnographic study of hip hop, takes the reader inside the world of hip hop culture in a way that no other book really has. Harrison clearly elucidates the relationship between hip hop culture, demographic change and ethnic/racial identities/relations, offering along the way one of the most masterful syntheses of existing hip hop literatures. Rigorous, yet highly engaging and enjoyable, it fills a significant gap in the literature."—Andy Bennett, Professor in Cultural Sociology, Griffith University, Australia, and author of Popular Music and Youth Culture: Music, Identity and Place
