3.0 out of 5 stars A good starting point..., 20 April 2012
This review is from: Music and Politics (PCPC - Polity Contemporary Political Communication Series) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It goes without saying that music and politics influence eachother...one glaring example of this is the rise of the punk movement in the 1970s against the backdrop of an austere government and the Notting Hill riots of 1976. I chose this book partly because of the recommendation given by Keith Negus, a prominent author of Popular Music books (most notably Popular Music in Theory: An Introduction which was really helpful to me during my time studying Popular Music at university.

This book skirts around certain issues, I guess for fear of reprisal or ostracisation, and instead uses Bob Geldof as an example ad nauseum. I think the idea is a good one, and certainly there is a lack of books discussing the relationship between music and politics, but I felt this book didn't go in-depth enough and as such isn't as good as it could have been. As there are limited resources on this subject matter, though, I would recommend it nonetheless.
