9780737708622: Rock & Roll (Paperback Edition) (Examining Pop Culture)

Rock and roll musicians frequently react to a society that marginalizes people based on their race, gender, or social class. The relationship between mainstream society and rock music is examined in this anthology. Issues covered include the development of various rock genres and the perceived dangers of rock music.

Review:

"As in many other Greenhaven series, such as Opposing Viewpoints, these volumes in the new Examining Pop Culture series includes excerpts from a range of periodicals and primary sources. Both titles, with their sophisticated language and bibliographies of mostly scholarly resources, are best suited for older, academically advanced teens. A fine new series to spark well-informed discussions about lifestyle and current issues."
-- Booklist (October 2001) (Booklist 20011015)

"The entries are well-balanced and present a variety of viewpoints."
-- School Library Journal (School Library Journal )

"Fascinating, informative reading as well as a solid research support; a generous, annotated selection of additional resources is appended."
-- Booklist (April 2002) (Booklist 20020401)

"Fascinating, informative reading as well as a solid research support; a generous, annotated selection of additional resources is appended."
-- Booklist (April 2002) (Booklist 20020401)

"...Overall, this volume has very limited appeal."
-- School Library Journal (Febraury 2002) (School Library Journal 20020201)

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up-Scholarly essays are organized around four major issues: the early days, politics and rock, the dangers of the music, and the future. Articles cover such topics as the influence of black music, protest and feminist rock, drug use by musicians, explicit lyrics, and the effect of technology on music. The list of books for further research is annotated, and there is a decent index. Some of the essays are so scholarly that they will try the patience of all but the most serious young researchers. Overall, this volume has very limited appeal.
