Summary

Talkin' 'Bout A Revolution Is The Most Comprehensive Guide Yet to the fascinating relationship between American music, culture, and politics. Music expert Dick Weissman dares to take on this massive topic and presents it with ease. From the early days of the U. S. to the twenty-first century, Weissman draws upon and explains a vast amount of music, including songs by and about Native Americans, African Americans, women, and Latinos and spanning pop, punk, folk, "music of hate," music of war, and beyond. Unprecedented in its approach, this book offers a multidisciplinary discussion that is broad and diverse, and illuminates how social events impact music as well as how music impacts social events.
