Summary
"This collection maps the Beat Generation movement globally, exploring American Beat writers alongside parallel movements in other countries that shared a critique of global capitalism and a sense of the permeability of national and cultural boundaries. Ranging from the immediate post-World War II period and continuing into the 1990s, the essays illustrate Beat participation in the global circulation of a poetics of dissent that both affirms and transforms nation/state identities"--
