Summary
"Beneath the mythical and benign surface of the 1950s roiled a sociocultural movement that would burst into view in the 1960s. The Rebel Café illuminates these currents by shining a spotlight on America's urban underground nightlife. In the midst of the Cold War, subterranean nightspots in New York and San Francisco were social, cultural, and even political hothouses for leftwing bohemians and cultural producers. Stephen R. Duncan's analysis of this radical history unveils the interwoven struggles for libertarian anarchism, civil rights, gay liberation, and feminism that shaped the contours of postwar left-liberalism and cultural dissent--as well as the tensions that later tore this fabric into the discreet badges of identity politics. By paying attention to urban leisure and nightlife in the postwar period and connecting these areas to national social change in the 1950s, The Rebel Café will appeal to a popular audience as well as cultural historians"--
