This book explores the convergences and divergences between two symbolic cultural figures of the late twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries: Prince, a transgressive artist who consistently crossed popular musical, visual cultural, racial, gender, sexual, and national borders, and Ronald Reagan, the paradigmatic figure of the 1980s conservative turn.

The text delineates the ways in which each figure illuminates key themes of the 1980s--from the reaction against the 1960s to its hyper-consumerism.

Each chapter focuses on relationships between Prince, Reagan, and the cultural politics of race, gender, sexuality, class, and nation, providing broader case studies of the cultural manifestations of each of these categories in late twentieth-century and early-twenty-first century US and transnational cultures.
