Synopsis:

Pop music and rock music are often treated as separate genres but the distinction has always been blurred.  Motti Regev argues that pop-rock is best understood as a single musical form defined by the use of electric and electronic instruments, amplification and related techniques. The history of pop-rock extends from the emergence of rock'n'roll in the 1950s to a variety of contemporary fashions and trends – rock, punk, soul, funk, techno, hip hop, indie, metal, pop and many more.

This book offers a highly original account of the emergence of pop-rock music as a global phenomenon in which Anglo-American and many other national and ethnic variants interact in complex ways.  Pop-rock is analysed as a prime instance of 'aesthetic cosmopolitanism' – that is, the gradual formation, in late modernity, of world culture as a single interconnected entity in which different social groupings around the world increasingly share common ground in their aesthetic perceptions, expressive forms and cultural practices.

Drawing on a wide array of examples, this path-breaking book will be of great interest to students and scholars in cultural sociology, media and cultural studies as well as the study of popular music.

From the Back Cover:

“This is a very fine piece of work, which makes an original contribution both to our understanding of popular music and to our understanding of the global cultural order. It provides a new perspective on how sounds are produced, circulated, and experienced.”
John Street, University of East Anglia

“In this highly original book, Professor Regev considers how exploring pop-rock both taps and enriches sociological theory Regev’s study is both empirically nuanced and theoretically sophisticated. It illuminates music as a fundamental and dynamic material of social life. As Regev shows, pop-rock’s emergence is nothing less than the re-figuration of world culture.”
Tia Denora, Exeter University

“Motti Regev expertly provides a much needed take on pop-rock, the field(s) in which it is produced and enjoyed, and it’s global diffusion. He uses the case of pop-rock to cast empirical light on aesthetic cosmopolitanism and artistic legitimation. The result is a book that is highly informative and refreshingly engaging.”
Timothy Dowd, Emory University
