Understand the social and historical significance of rock-and-roll

Brief, authoritative, and current, Dave Szatmary's Rockin' in Time: A Social History of Rock-and-Roll, weaves the major icons of rock-and-roll into a larger social/historical fabric. Rather than an exhaustive catalog of artists in rock history or a guide to learning musical notation, the book places rock-and-roll in the context of the social issues that surrounded and shaped it. Topics include the influence on rock music of such trends as the civil rights movement, political and economic shifts, demographical change and the baby boom, the development of the music business, and technology advances.

  • Explores Music’s Influence on Society — The title examines the impact of popular music on social trends for over 60 years — such as Motown’s and hip hop’s impacts on racial integration, rockers’ influence on presidential elections, the Beach Boys’ role in the 1960s migration to California, and more. A new chapter (Chapter 21: Country Counter-Revolution) explores country rock and its ties to the Tea Party conservative political movement.
  • Traces the Development of Rock-and-Roll - The book follows rock-and-roll from its inception with the blues to the present day, showing the continuity in the music as well as the differences. This allows students to recognise and understand the historical context of their favorite music. New material shows the progression of the music and the major musical elements of different rock genres.
  • Engages Students — Quotes from many of the artists who shaped music during the past 60 years make the book more enticing to students, along with additional photos, posters and other compelling images. A refreshed colour scheme throughout the text keeps students engaged.
