The Republic of Rock

Music and Citizenship in the Sixties Counterculture

Michael J. Kramer

  • Focuses on the deep context of musical reception using a wide range of multimedia sources and connects it to democratic citizenship.
  • Draws on new archival evidence and interviews, telling new stories that have been silenced by the typical, clichéd tale of rock in the sixties.
  • Transnational study that connects US popular culture to military in Vietnam and then to Vietnamese.
  • Author was music editor for New York, and has written about music, culture, and history for Salon, Sonicnet, Newsday,, Jazziz, First of the Month, The Point, and other outlets.
