Summary "The term 'cool' has become such an integral part of the modern lexicon that its meaning and history have almost beel lost. This stellar collection of photographs from the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery and from prominent artists, museums, and archives roundly recaptures and revives the elusive ideal of cool. The American concept of cool is older than we think and is also in constant flux"--Dust jacket flap.
