There's A Riot Going On: Revolutionaries, Rock Stars, And The Rise And Fall Of '60s Counter-culture

Not yet rated | write a review
Between 1965 and 1972, political activists around the globe prepared to mount a revolution, from the Black Panthers to the Gay Liberation Front, from the Yippies to the IRA. Rock and soul music supplied the revolutionary tide with anthems and iconic imagery, and renowned musicians such as John Lennon, Mick Jagger, and Bob Dylan were particularly influential in the movement. This is the definitive account of this unique period in modern history—a compelling portrait of an era when revolutionaries turned into rock stars, and rock stars dressed up as revolutionaries.
