"From its roots in the black and white "under classes" through its clash with the broader culture to its multifaceted incarnation today, rock and roll has fostered and reflected a genuine cultural revolution which has gone on to influence the world. This critical text investigates rock music from a philosophical perspective, an approach rarely seen in the literature"--Provided by publisher.
