Summary
Let's Rock! reclaims the lost history of rock & roll, one of the most important cultural developments in post-WW II America. Based on years of research and interviews, the book offers new information and fresh perspectives about the rise of rock & roll and 1950s America, arguing that rather than rebellion and liberalism, the musical craze supported centrist politics, traditional values, and mainstream attitudes toward race, gender, class, and ethnicity
