From the Publisher:

The only study of its kind, this well- organized text offers an in-depth and unique examination of rock-and-roll from a social history perspective. Tracing rock from its inception fifty years ago to the present, it shows how this popular musical genre has mirrored the hopes, joys, fears and ambitions of two generations of listeners.

From the Back Cover:

Exploring rock'n' roll from its roots in the Mississippi Delta to the present, author Dave Szatmary connects rock music to the changing cultures in the U.S. and Great Britain.

As you travel through the five decades of rock, you will learn about the pioneering efforts of African Americans in the birth of rock and roll; the importance of the postwar Baby Boom on Presleymania; and the connection between Civil Rights and Bob Dylan, Motown, and soul music. Find out about the impact of the Vietnam War on the shattering blues of Jimi Hendrix; the link between the Me Decade and glam and disco; the British economic depression that led to the rise of punk;. how a disillusioned Generation X developed grunge and rap; and the forging of nu-metal in the age of the Internet.

This new edition has been significantly revised to include:

  • the British psychedelic scene
  • arena rock
  • the lasting influence of Ozzy Osbourne
  • country rock during the 1980s
  • the poster art of rock
  • new insights in L.A. punk
  • the rap-metal of Korn and Limp Bizkit
  • the funk rock of the Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • rock in the age of the Internet
  • the nu-metal of Creed, Incubus, Nickelback, Staind, and others
