Author: Alex Sayf Cummings
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, [2013]
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
'Democracy of Sound' tells the story of the pirates, radicals, jazzbos, deadheads, and DJs who challenged the record industry for control of recorded sound throughout the 20th century. A political and cultural history, it shows how the primacy of 'intellectual property' gradually eclipsed an American political tradition that was suspicious of monopolies and favoured free competition.
