Description: Close to the Edge tells the stories of a global generation that came of age with hip hop. Part memoir, part social history, the book relates the author'¬"s experiences as she traverses the hip hop globe, from Australia to Detroit and from Havana to Caracas. The book explores the elements of hip hop culture'¬ ;rapping, beat making, b-boying, d-jaying, and graffiti'¬ ; as they melded with street cultures and local slang to be reinvented around the world. Close to the Edge narrates a search for solidarities across borders, a document of the diverse histories, misunderstandings, and fissures that hip hop engendered as it went global, and a powerful demonstration of the power of music to forge radical political alliances.
