Amazon.com Review B-boying is a form of Afro-diasporic competitive dance that developed in the Bronx, NY in the early 1970s. Widely--though incorrectly--known as "breakdancing," it is often dismissed as urban acrobatics set to music. In reality, b-boying is a traditional and profoundly expressive art form. Some b-boys display their skill at "popping"--rapid movements followed by short freezes. In Foundation, Joseph G. Schloss walks you through the history of b-boying and his personal relationship to the music and the artists who bring hip hop to life. Meet the B-boys and B-girls of New York's Hip Hop Scene B-boy and Popper, Geomatrixrelaxing in the South Bronx Tiny Love popping in Union Square, NY with boomboxes from his collection Dancer and teacher, SeoulSonyk, a.k.a. MiRi Park Review "Joe Schloss doesn't just talk the talk, he rocks the rock. In the rapidly expanding field of hip-hop studies, he is without peer--a careful observer, a committed floor-rocker, a brilliant historian, a scholar's scholar, and a true b-boy. Foundation is his first masterpiece. "--Jeff Chang, author of Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of The Hip-Hop Generation "Joseph Schloss documents the path of the B-boy with the precision of a swordsman and the love of shaman. It took a great deal of courage and patience to make a book on Hip-Hop as inspirational as it is accurate. After reading it I made Foundation required reading for our organization."--Adisa Banjoko, CEO, Hip-Hop Chess Federation "There is no richer example of tradition in Hip-Hop culture, than the legacy of B-Boys and B-Girls. Foundation gives voice to these often forgotten actors in hip-hop history, giving us all a clue about the genius that literally sits at the foundation of hip-hop. Joe Schloss cannot be dismissed as some disconnected Ivory-Tower critic and with Foundation, he simply ups the ante on hip- hop scholarship in a major way."--Mark Anthony Neal, Professor of Black Popular Culture at Duke University
