Summary
During the mid 20th century, roadhouses formed part of an imaginary America in suburban Britain that was promoted by the popularity of American movies, music, and fiction, providing a pastiche of the American country club. While much work has been done on the Soho nightclubs of the 1930s, the roadhouse has been largely ignored. Michael John Law and David Gutzke fill this gap in the literature by providing a comprehensive analysis of the roadhouse's cultural meaning, demonstrating how its Americanisation was interpreted for British consumers
