An essential work for rock fans and scholars, Before Elvis: The Prehistory of Rock n Roll surveys the origins of rock n roll from the minstrel era to the emergence of Bill Haley and Elvis Presley. Unlike other histories of rock, Before Elvis offers a far broader and deeper analysis of the influences on rock music. Dispelling common misconceptions, it examines rock s origins in hokum songs and big-band boogies as well as Delta blues, detailing the embrace by white artists of African-American styles long before rock n roll appeared. This unique study ranges far and wide, highlighting not only the contributions of obscure but key precursors like Hardrock Gunter and Sam Theard but also the influence of celebrity performers like Gene Autry and Ella Fitzgerald. Too often, rock historians treat the genesis of rock n roll as a bolt from the blue, an overnight revolution provoked by the bland pop music that immediately preceded it and created through the white appropriation of music till then played only by and for black audiences. In Before Elvis, Birnbaum daringly argues a more complicated history of rock s evolution from a heady mix of ragtime, boogie-woogie, swing, country music, mainstream pop, and rhythm-and-blues a melange that influenced one another along the way, from the absorption of blues and boogies into jazz and pop to the integration of country and Caribbean music into rhythm-and-blues. Written in an easy style, Before Elvis presents a bold argument about rock s origins and required reading for fans and scholars of rock n roll history."

A vibrant biography of one of the greatest rock 'n' rollers, the America that made him, and the America he made. This smart, incisive biography traces Bruce Springsteen’s evolution from a young artist who wasn’t sure what he wanted to say to an acclaimed musician with a distinctive vision for a better society. Brilliantly analyzing and evoking Springsteen’s output, Marc Dolan unveils the pulsing heart of his music: its deep personal, political, and cultural resonances, which enabled Springsteen to reflect on his experiences as well as the world around him. The book is now updated with a new chapter on The Promise, Wrecking Ball, and the 2012 tour.

These lively and penetrating essays by outstanding scholars of political communication examine President Clinton's rhetorical work before he took the oath of office, presenting a unique perspective on the words and texts that brought him to the presidency and the dynamics of political media throughout the campaign. In these original, valuable, and deeply insightful interpretations, the success of Clinton as a public persuader and compelling orator is analyzed, as is the whole process of political communication in America at the end of the twentieth century. Not all voices and the views they express are sympathetic. We do learn, however, how Clinton's superiority as a campaigner, the qualities of youth, energy, and hard work he projected, and his broad knowledge and clear articulation of the issues undoubtedly underpinned his victorious bid for the White House. "The man from Hope" who held up a beacon to "the forgotten middle class" exhibited throughout the presidential race an ability to focus and translate issues of national importance into clear and highly personalized anecdotes, turning around attacks on his personal life time and time again. The Comeback Kid's talent for political compromise and resolution and his mastery of rhetorical invention and media logic are thoroughly examined in these highly readable essays.

"Big Trees, Not Big Stumps by co-founder of WCWC Paul George chronicles the 25 year history of the Wilderness Committee's campaigns between 1980 and 2005. Included are adventures and success stories, heart-wrenching tales of our losses and candid information about behind-the-scenes activities that few people, until now, have known about. If this book motivates even one person who has never experienced the mystic nature of the wild places like Gwaii Haanas, the Stein Valley or Clayoquot Sound to begin trekking through some wilderness, it will be a success."--Rainforest Store desc.
