For courses in Introduction to Rock Music
Examine the social and business sides of rock history
Rockin' Out: Popular Music In the U.S.A. analyzes the music and business of rock ‘n’ roll. Covering topics such as the rise of television idols, the proliferation of alternative sounds, and the influence of digital production techniques, this comprehensive, introductory text takes readers from the invention of the phonograph to the promise of the Internet. Joining longtime author Reebee Garofalo for the Sixth Edition, co-author Steve Waksman — professor at Smith College and heavily published rock scholar — has thoroughly revised each chapter to include new research and more current literature.
