Jason Reid’s Get Out of my Room! A History of Teen Bedrooms in America explores everything from posters to personal space in teen bedrooms as a surprising source of cultural power over the years. Reid emphasizes how shifts in the economy, demographic changes, and technological advances shaped the way that teenagers came to “own” their spaces over the years to become “autonomous.” The Times Higher Education calls this book “engaging and affectionately written.”
