Content descriptions

General Note: Includes index.
Summary, etc.: "In more than two hundred wonderfully illustrated entries, Jane and Michael Stern's Encyclopedia of Pop Culture takes us through the highlights of everyday life over the past fifty years--the fads, celebrities, fashions, and foods that have obsessed and delighted us. Each entry presents a brief history of its subject (learn, for instance, what the names Pez and Haagen-Dazs really mean, what product has traditionally sold best during recessions, how credit cards have changed the character of America, why E.T.'s finger trembled so much, and what the fattest man in the world ate for breakfast) and evaluaes its significance in the pop pantheon"--Jacket.
