From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit:Chronicled in a succinct and in-depth manner, this contemporary study offers a thorough examination of rock-and- roll from a social history perspective, tracing rock from its inception fifty years ago to the present, and showing how this popular musical genre has mirrored the hopes, joys, fears and ambitions of two generations of listeners. Key Topics: Systematically explaining the social and historical significance of rock music, Szatmary's guide explores the pervasive influence of rock music on the civil rights movement, economic and demographic trends, the impact of African-Americans on culture in the U.S. and Britain, and the effects of technology - presenting material in a brief fashion without disparaging or glorified reviews of any specific type of music. Featuring a new chapter on hardcore punk, thrash metal, grunge music and the Seattle sound, rap, and the 90's country music of Garth Brooks, it significantly revises the chapter on British invasion, offering more insight on the Rolling Stones and other British blues groups, and now includes many fascinating photos never previously published. Market: For rock writers and historians.
