'Superb ... This history of rock's development, filled with supremely intelligent writing, is as addictive as so many 45s from that era dropping onto your turntable and blasting out fabulous news at high energy ... a fabulous, can't-miss tale of simple musical pleasures and outsized gratifications, of sex, drugs, fame, wealth, rebellion, dreary bad-boyism, and an alluring "aura of menace y that entered pop culture through its new music... a review can only hint at its richness and breadth.' Philadelphia Enquirer 'Excellent ... Miller bas a particularly acute eye' Financial Times 'Authoritative ... excellent and readable. Miller's varied career gives him - at times - the objective distance of a social historian, the encyclopaedic knowledge of a veteran music journalist, and the residual enthusiasm of a fan! Times Literary Supplement 'Readable, provocative ... a major work in the field' Independent 'Fascinating ... as wonderfully mixed up as the rock revolution it describes! Los Angeles Times 'Because [Miller] thinks harder and more broadly than most pop music Writers, and writes more lucidly, especially about the music itself, than those who theorize about rock in cultural studies 'Because [Miller] thinks harder and more broadly than most pop music writers, and writes more lucidly, especially about the music itself, than those who theorize about rock in cultural studies departments, the result is a book that engrosses... you can almost feel the wondrously dizzying pace at which rock rose!

Biographie de James Miller

James Miller is professor of political science and director of liberal studies at the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research. A Guggenheim Fellow and twice a winner of the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award for excellence in writing about music, he has covered the rock scene for national publications since 1967, when one of his early record reviews appeared in the third issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Since then, his reviews, profiles, and essays on music have appeared in New Times, The New Republic, The New York Times, and Newsweek, where he was a book reviewer and pop music critic between 1981 and 1990. The original editor of The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll (which first appeared in 1976), he also contributed an essay on his favorite rock album, Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes (1964), to an anthology edited by Greil Marcus, Stranded: Rock and Roll for a Desert Island (1979). He is the author of four previous books: The Passion of Michel Foucault (1993), an interpretive essay on the life of the French philosopher, a National Book Critics Circle Finalist for General Nonfiction; "Democracy Is in the Streets": From Port Huron to the Siege of Chicago (1987), an account of the American student movement of the 1960s, also a National Book Critics Circle Finalist for General Nonfiction; Rousseau: Dreamer of Democracy (1984), a study of the origins of modern democracy; and History and Human Existence-From Marx to Merleau-Ponty (1979), an analysis of Marx and the French existentialists. A native of Chicago educated at Pomona College and Brandeis University, where he received a Ph.D. in the History of Ideas, he lives with his wife and three sons in West Roxbury, Massachusetts.
