How do governments shape the music industry? "Rock and Popular Music" examines the array of institutional and policy considerations which help determine what music is produced, how it is heard, and its connections to other cultural activity. The contributors focus on the way rock is socially regulated by policy agendas and frameworks set in place by the industries theselves--music/video production, broadcasting and some governmental support (or the lack of it.) Topics covered include: rock in East Germant, the American music industry and the global market, feminist musical practice, radio airplay formats, censorship, and Black popular music. In its exploration of policies and institutions, "Rock and Popular Culture" suggests significant directions for the study of contemporary music.
