Understand the social and historical significance of rock¿-and-roll

Brief, authoritative, and up-to-date, David Szatmary's Rockin' in Time: A Social History of Rock-¿and-¿Roll, 9th Edition, weaves the major icons of rock-¿and-¿roll into a larger sociohistorical fabric. Placing rock-and-roll in the context of the social issues that surrounded and shaped it, this book explores topics like the influence of rock music on the Civil Rights Movement, demographic change and the baby boom, the development of the music business, and technological advances. The 9th Edition contains new photos and images, as well as new material on Delta blues, fusion jazz, and electronic dance music.

*Music for your course is available through Spotify.

Author Biography

David P. Szatmary worked in the music industry and taught the history of rock-and-roll at several universities after earning his Ph.D. in American History at Rutgers University.

He also authored Shays’ Rebellion (University of Massachusetts Press, 1980), which has been made into a film and served as the basis for a History Channel program. Szatmary regularly reviews rock and jazz books. In 2014, he retired from his position as the Vice Provost of Educational Outreach at the University of Washington, one of the premier professional and continuing education programs in the country. He is a noted expert and has been interviewed extensively by the media about online learning and higher education budgeting in addition to rock-and-roll.
