Rock Music Scholarship An Interdisciplinary Bibliography by Jeffrey N. Gatten

An interdisciplinary annotated bibliography, this one volume covers 10 subject areas, eliminating the need to use disparate sources. It provides links among the various areas of rock music scholarship, thus imposing bibliographic control across a wide body of research that treats rock music in a serious manner. The disciplines include communication, education, ethnomusicology, history, literature and the arts, music, politics, psychology, religion, and sociology. Journal articles, books, book chapters, dissertations, and films and videos are reviewed. A quick and efficient way for scholars, students, and rock music fans to examine a broad range of works. Each entry contains full bibliographic information plus annotations that are designed to provide clear descriptive explanations of content. The publications reviewed are primarily interpretive and analytical rather than merely descriptive or just factual. They exclude most news publications, biographies, and histories, and include works that provide serious treatment of subjects that inform, enlighten, and educate. The work definitely provides an insightful, easy-to-use format for studying this particular expression of the human experience.


?Librarians shoudl seize [this] stud[y] with glee. The 934 citations and commentaries are remarkably thorough and detailed. No comparable scholary resource exists....[T]he materials cited...are pertinent and comprehensive.?-Popular Music and Society
