33 Revolutions per Minute: A History of Protest Songs, from Billie Holiday to Green Day
by Dorian Lynskey Author
A comprehensive and page turning history of the songs that have shaped activism and transformed the world over the last hundred years. Protest songs have been a kind of love child between politics and pop music, and these songs have served as tools for social change throughout the past centure. This detailed and thoroughly researched history considers songs from artist ranging from Woodie Guthrie and BobDylan to Public Enemy and the Clash to show pop music at its most socially relevant. This book goes in detail to cover 33 songs from seven decades and five continents to show how protest music addresses injustice and educates listeners to make change.
