Understand the social and historical significance of rock-and-roll

Brief, authoritative, and current, Dave Szatmary's Rockin' in Time: A Social History of Rock-and-Roll, 8/e, weaves the major icons of rock-and-roll into a larger social/historical fabric. Rather than an exhaustive catalog of artists in rock history or a guide to learning musical notation, the book places rock-and-roll in the context of the social issues that surrounded and shaped it. Topics include the influence on rock music of such trends as the civil rights movement, political and economic shifts, demographical change and the baby boom, the development of the music business, and technology advances.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Comprehensive in its coverage of different musical movements throughout the period it covers. Provides a thorough introduction to the history of pop music."

- Gregory Weinstein, Columbia College of Chicago

"Clear and concise writing."

- Deborah Wilson, Ohio State University, Marion Campus

"Its three greatest strengths are: Its emphasis upon social history, the explanation of the many different iterations of rock music, and the companion website. This book is an excellent study of rock music's place in Anglo-American social history."

- John H. Smith, Texas A&M University-Commerce

"It is a great book to stirring up discussions on some important social aspects of the music."

- Yolanda Williams, Minneapolis Community and Technical College
