9780393345841: Bruce Springsteen and the Promise of Rock 'n' Roll
Review:

"A riveting profile of New Jersey's great bard. Dolan, the ultimate Springsteen fan, has an encyclopedic knowledge of his subject. And his infectious love of American popular music is nothing short of awesome. The best book on Bruce ever written!" -- Douglas Brinkley, author of Cronkite "Bruce Springsteen and the Promise of Rock 'n' Roll endeavors to get to the heart of its subject by viewing him through the economic, social, political, religious and family turmoil that formed a musician who found out early on how to make his guitar talk but spent painful decades refining what he needed to make it say. Springsteen's creative evolution and endurance as a populist American rock 'n' roll hero is, according to Dolan, "a slantwise way of telling the history of our times, how we have come together and divided over the last half-century, how we have changed what we think of ourselves as a people." -- Robin Finn "Those who are interested in the shaping of an American icon-and, more significantly, the creation of some lasting American music-may be directed safely to this book." -- Tim Page "The definitive Springsteen biography/musical analysis, finely written and meticulously researched... by an academic who can write for a popular audience... For fans, Dolan's book is a necessary addition to the Springsteen library. For more casual listeners, who often wonder just what the fuss is all about, this volume is a good place to start." -- Michael Riley "In an appreciative study that at times verges on the academic, Dolan traces Springsteen's journey through a song-by-song and album-by-album development..." "A unique biography of a great rock 'n roll artist drawn from 40 years of thrilling performances. If you're a Springsteen fan, this will deepen your appreciation. And if you're not a fan, what the hell is wrong with you?" -- William McKeen, author of Rock 'n Roll is Here to Stay: An Anthology "With the notable exception of Bob Dylan, no other singer-songwriter still active in the 21st Century has spawned as many academic studies as The Boss, and Dolan's book is among the very best. As a chronicler of our times, Springsteen has few equals... and the author's examination of an extraordinary body of work is as clear-headed and accessible as the music itself... By necessity, his book also serves as a history of America, outlining a nation's political conflicts, class disparity, prejudices and shortcomings... [T]he author is especially evocative in his descriptions of working class New Jersey in the 60s and early 70s. Where he scores his most emphatic bullseyes, however, is in his assessment of how Springsteen handled his wealth and stardom; of how his conscience and politics adapted to being one of the most famous men in the world without losing sight of the struggles of his core audience, the 'little' man on the street." -- Terry Staunton, record Collector "Readable and engrossing." "Marc Dolan has written a book of rock criticism at its finest. He brings to the story of Bruce Springsteen an encyclopedic knowledge, a clean, fast-moving prose style, and an irrepressible love of his subject. The Boss deserves no less, and he could ask for no better." -- John Matteson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Lives of Margaret Fuller "Dolan makes a point of telling more than just the Boss' personal history, putting his putting his musical contributions in context with the country's political state." "Readable and engrossing."

Review:

"...no other singer-songwriter still active in the 21st Century has spawned as many academic studies as The Boss, and Dolan's book is among the very best...the author's examination of an extraordinary body of work is as clear-headed and accessible as the music itself." Record Collector "Those who are interested in the shaping of an American icon - and, more significantly, the creation of some lasting American music - may be directed safely to this book." The Washington Post "This is an addictive book...It twists so fine through one of rock'n'roll's most fascinating stories." Classic Rock Magazine "Springsteen is probably the distillation of all that is best about American music rolled into one great artist, and in this book Marc Dolan goes into immense detail to prove it." Irish Independent "Dolan does a good job of telling the story of his [Bruce Springsteen's] continuing relevance..." Belfast Telegraph "...meticulously detailed biography..." The Daily Record "Riveting...The best book on Bruce ever written!" Douglas Brinkley
