Rockin' in Time: A Social History of Rock-and-Roll will help you understand the social and historical significance of rock-and-roll. Author David Szatmary weaves the major icons of rock-and-roll into a larger sociohistorical fabric, placing the music in the context of the social issues that surrounded and shaped it. This authoritative text explores topics such as 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. New photos and posters help demonstrate the connections between rock-and-roll and social history.
