Beatlemania: Technology, Business, and Teen Culture in Cold War America
The Beatle had an influence on many cultures throughout the world and to a greater extent than most people realize. Although most people understand that they worked to revolutionize music and even fashion, they Beatles effect had much farther implications that spread throughout the economy in general and even influenced technology. It is argued that the European influence on the Beatles made them fashion leaders as opposed to simply followers of the contemporary style. (Millard, 2012) .
