Alice Echols reveals the ways in which disco transformed popular music, propelling it into new sonic territory and influencing rap, techno, and trance. She probes the complex relationship between disco and the era's major movements: gay liberation, feminism, and African American rights. You won't say "disco sucks" as disco thumps back to life in this pulsating look at the culture and politics that gave rise to the music.
Alice Echols is a professor of English and gender studies at the University of Southern California. A former disco deejay, she is the author of the acclaimed biography of Janis Joplin, Scars of Sweet Paradise, among other works.
