Editorial Reviews

Review

The first three chapters, about each title character and their particular artistic genesis, are good cultural history and excellent pop music analysis (his explication of Dylan's rejection of modernity is one of the better summations available of this complicated figure). . . . The accounts provide fresh, rewarding perspectives on historical moments that have been theorized to death, if not outright mythologized, and Maxwell's historical blow-by-blow does great service as a patient, careful examination of each watershed. . . . Grasping at any threads that might bind high culture with low . . . this very polar tension generates the ultimately subtle magnetism of Maxwell's book.

Thomas Conner, H-Net Reviews
