Publisher's Comments

Considered something of a folk classic from its first appearance as a PhD dissertation in 1971 until its present incarnation (revised and updated by the now-deceased original author's wife), this lively, fair-minded, scholarly cultural history describes the connections between the politics, folklore, and music of the period, providing a mostly chronological account of the movement and the musicians, political activists, and folklorists involved.
