In 1983, Rolling Stone Press introduced its first rock and roll encyclopedia - a long awaited compendium to the most popular musical innovation of the twentieth century: rock and roll. Twelve years later, they produced a second version detailing rock's movement from the Beatles and the Go-Gos to Nirvana and Public Enemy. Since its inception, this reference has become a classic in its own right. Phenomenally accurate, informative and encapsulating, it tells the story of rock and roll in a clear and easy format. This revised volume is the definitive sourcebook on the world's music makers. From the one-hit wonders to the megastars, this photo-laden work shows how rock has developed not just as a musical genre but also as a way of life. It's all here, from the tremendous impact of Madonna, MTV, rap, hip-hop and alternative rock to complete profiles of the Grateful Dead, the Rolling Stones, NWA and hundreds of other musicians, both famous and infamous. More than just a reference book, THE ROLLING STONE ENCYCLOPEDIA is the final word in rock and roll.

The Rock History Reader is an eclectic compilation of readings that tells the history of rock as it has been received and explained as a social and musical practice throughout its six decade history. The readings range from the vivid autobiographical accounts of such rock icons as Ronnie Spector and David Lee Roth to the writings of noted rock critics like Lester Bangs and Chuck Klosterman. It also includes a variety of selections from media critics, musicologists, fanzine writers, legal experts, sociologists and prominent political figures. Many entries also deal specifically with distinctive styles such as Motown, punk, disco, grunge, rap and indie rock. Each entry includes headnotes, which place it in its historical context. This second edition includes new readings on the early years of rhythm & blues and rock 'n' roll, as well as entries on payola, mods, the rise of FM rock, progressive rock and the PMRC congressional hearings. In addition, there is a wealth of new material on the 2000s that explores such relatively recent developments as emo, mash ups, the explosion of internet culture and new media, and iconic figures like Radiohead and Lady Gaga. With numerous readings that delve into the often explosive issues surrounding censorship, copyright, race relations, feminism, youth subcultures, and the meaning of musical value, The Rock History Reader continues to appeal to scholars and students from a variety of disciplines.
