Product description


"Buy this now." -- Rolling Stone

A brilliant history... anaylses Dylan's finger-pointing songs with clinical precision... -- Uncut

A fascinating and detailed analysis… his narrative [has] freshness, vigour and purpose. -- Times Literary Supplement


How Dylan responded to the political and social forces that shook 1960s America? Bob Dylan's abrupt abandonment of overtly political song-writing in the mid-1960s caused an uproar among critics and fans. Acclaimed cultural-political commentator Marqusee advances the new thesis that Dylan did not drop politics from his songs but changed the manner of his critique to address the changing political and cultural climate and, more importantly, his own evolving aesthetic.
