Description

A social history of Rock and Roll music and its influence.

 

Brief, authoritative, and current, Dave Szatmary's Rockin' in Time: A Social History of Rock-and-Roll, focuses on a selection of artists and songs and weaves them into a larger social/historical context. Rather than a compellation of the many bands in rock history or a guide to teach the musical notation of rock, this book uncovers the reasons for the various trends and types of rock and roll. It places rock and roll in the context of the social issues that surround and shape it, dealing with the influence on rock music of such trends as technological advances, the development of the music business, demographic change and the baby boom, economic shifts, and the civil rights movement.

 

The 8th edition contains new chapter openers, a revised color scheme, and examination of more open format options.
