"In The Words and Music of Neil Young, individual chapters cover Young's musical output album by album, and song by song - from his debut work with Buffalo Springfield, to his time with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and his solo work in various genres and for various causes (some political, but all artistic). A discography and bibliography round out this comprehensive analysis."--Jacket." ;
