'The Soul Stylists' by Paolo Hewitt (& Paul Weller) was first published in 2000. Drawing on a collection of anecdotes and personal testimony, this book charts the course of the Modernist movement from the middle of the last century. It celebrates the clothes, lifestyle, culture, attitude, and in particular some of the music around which Modernism is centred.
