Edited by an internationally recognized expert on Pop art and culture, this book surveys Pop across all artforms and gives equal coverage to its American, British and European manifestations

Works Each image is accompanied by an extended caption. This section is chronologically sequenced:
Revolt into Style (1956–60) surveys the birth of Pop culture and its images, including the American Beat generation artists, photographers and filmmakers; Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, the French Decollageistes, Richard Hamilton and the ‘British Pop’ of the Independent Group.
Consumer Culture (1960–63) chronicles American Pop’s explosion, from Roy Lichtenstein’s cartoon-based paintings to Claes Oldenburg's Store and Andy Warhol's Factory.
Colonization of the Mind (1963–66) looks at American Pop's reception in Europe, in the work of Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke and others.
Spectacular Time (1966–67) surveys late Pop developments, from Warhol's Silver Clouds to Malcolm Morley's Photorealism.
Helter Skelter (1968) documents Pop’s demise and transformation into postmodernism, in projects such as Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown’s Learning from Las Vegas. Specifications:

"Modern art and design continues to fillet the movement once known as Pop, so Phaidon’s new monograph is a timely look back... Pop has it all, not just the iconic big-name images... Editor Mark Francis [...] has dug a little deeper and drawn together film, photography and even architecture."—Wallpaper*
"What makes the book indispensable is the inclusion of documents in which the artists, critics and theorists speak for themselves."—Martin Coomer, Time Out
"If you're looking for last-minute Christmas presents for your art-loving friends, you could do a lot worse than this. Divided into three sections - the survey by Hal Foster, a gazetteer of works and a selection of contemporary documents - this book could replace a whole bookshelf in your art library... It's a formula that should ensure that this book is one of the essential reference works on the Pop-art era."—Mark Rappolt, Modern Painters
"The many strengths of this absorbing, eclectically detailed survey are concentrated most in the cultural historical networking that is achieved between image and text. What results is in part a luxurious and luxuriating immersion in the sheer visual gorgeousness of much Pop material, and in part a digest and directory of Pop's great works, sources and related texts - Pop's greatest hits, so to speak... Pop art ought never to be consigned to some ever-expanding repertoire of stylish retro-aesthetics. It is the cultural link between Surrealism and Postmodernism, and often made statements about the modern world that have yet to be improved, or updated."—Michael Bracewell, Art Monthly
