Bruce Springsteen and the American Soul : Essays on the Songs and Influence of a Cultural Icon Paperback / softback
For 40 years Bruce Springsteen has been making music on his way to becoming an icon, the conscience of rock 'n' roll, and one of the greatest live performers of his generation.
This critical work examines the man, his music, the cultural importance of his narrative songs and the singular experience of his live performances.
Particular attention is paid to his political consciousness, including his alignment with the working poor, the unemployed, and Americans simply down on their luck.
It also explores his role in politics in America, especially his endorsement of various politicians.
