    Book details

What is rock? This lively new book suggests that to answer such a seemingly simple question, we must first understand the music in its social and cultural context, including how social relations between artist, audience, and mediators make rock possible. Rock'n America lays down a framework for understanding rock in the first chapter, and then traces the history of rock through its distinctive eras. The author organizes the book chronologically rather than by genre, setting up a narrative that is easy to follow and enjoyable to read. From the early post-World War II period, through to the present digital age, this comprehensive social and cultural history of rock music in America offers a unique perspective informed by key concepts in cultural sociology.
