Annotation

This is the very first historical and theoretical work to consider the post-war folk revival in Britain from a popular music studies perspective. Michael Brocken charts the revival from its origins in left-wing political ideology through to the convergence of folk and pop during the 1950s and 1960s, and the fragmentation and constriction of the revival since the 1970s.
