A reflection and symbol of the turbulent 1960s and Hippie culture, Hair made history as the first rock musical on Broadway and one of the most successful musicals. In Horn's view, it also represented a major step in the evolution of the "concept musical" from the "book musical" and was the first concept musical to reach mass audiences. Horn analyzes the social context of Hair and relates the dramatic story of its creation, its production at Joseph Papp's Public Theater, and its transfer to Broadway. These productions, revivals, and the film version are compared, documented by lists of song sequences, staff, and casts. Horn's extensive archival research is amplified by insights from interviews with principals involved in one or more productions and with theatre critics and theorists.

Hair, or lack of it, is one the most significant identifiers of individuals in any society. In Antiquity, the power of hair to send a series of social messages was no different. This volume covers nearly a thousand years of history, from Archaic Greece to the end of the Roman Empire, concentrating on what is now Europe, North Africa, and the Near East. Among the key issues identified by its authors is the recognition that in any given society male and female hair tend to be opposites (when male hair is generally short, women's is long); that hair is a marker of age and stage of life (children and young people have longer, less confined hairstyles; adult hair is far more controlled); hair can be used to identify the 'other' in terms of race and ethnicity but also those who stand outside social norms such as witches and mad women. The chapters in A Cultural History of Hair in Antiquity cover the following topics: religion and ritualized belief, self and society, fashion and adornment, production and practice, health and hygiene, gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, class and social status, and cultural representations.
