Product Description

Review

"Up close, Clover's analysis is interesting an occasionally brilliant. . . . Rich with historical and musical insight. . . . It's the smaller discoveries along the way that make 1989 worth your time."--"Bookforum"

"Astute . . . [A] vivid snapshot of a tumultuous moment in pop and history."--"Foreword Magazine"

"[A] dense, provocative, wonderfully written little book. . . . Masterful."--"The Progressive"

"[It] is an academic book, but also one that fans of politics and pop culture would savor."--Carlo Wolff"Boston Globe" (01/07/2010)

"[An] extraordinary work of political aesthetics. . . . Clover is a gifted music writer, and his descriptions are vivid, surprising and politically sharp without ever being moralistic."--Owen Hatherley"New Statesman" (11/09/2009)

"Music and politics, drugs and society prove to be eerily congruent, and Clover's tough analysis dismantles prevailing myths while revealing even stranger truths."--Luc Sante, author of"Low Life""Mother Jones" (12/01/2009)

From the Inside Flap

"Joshua Clover finally puts the lie to the tiresome cliche that 'writing about music is like dancing about architecture.' He shows definitively that when the time is right, architecture is precisely what people do dance about."Greil Marcus, author of "Lipstick Traces"
