"This highly readable book is among the first to link social movement and cultural theory. Building on previous studies, the authors examine the mobilization of cultural traditions and the formation of new collective identities through the music of activism. Specific chapters examine American folk and country music, black music, music of the sixties, and the transfer of the American experience to Europe."
