It has been a common assumption among academics and cultural historians alike that British youth between 1945 and 1960 underwent a period of massive 'Americanisation'. Juke box Britain contests this view maintaining that American popular-cultural influences were not examples of cultural domination but simply influences that combined with existing styles to create distinctly British style fusions. Juke box Britain provides fascinating reading for youth culture and juke box enthusiasts.
