Music and song are central to modern culture, social movements to cultural change. Building on their studies of Sixties culture and theory of cognitive praxis, the authors examine the mobilization of cultural traditions and 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. This highly readable book is among the first to link social movement and cultural theory.
