The Beat Movement that emerged in the early 1950s was not just another literary genre, but a literary and social revolution. This wide-ranging anthology of the best of Beat literature includes biographies of the writers and a literary guide to "Beat places" around the world.
A selection of the most exemplary poetry and prose of the Beat writers and writers influenced by the Beat Generation, and visits to high-points "on the Beaten path," such as Kerouac's hometown, and Tangiers, where William S. Burroughs wrote portions of Naked Lunch.
