Product Details


“In this remarkable reflection on the culture of the sixties, Mike Marqusee restores the forgotten moral and political contexts of Dylan’s supernova years. In doing so, he rescues one of the most urgent poetic voices in American history from the condescension of his own later cynicism.” –Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz

“Buy this now. Even as ‘The Times They are a-Changin” and ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ played their crucial role in creating a new politically active youth culture, as Mike Marqusee notes, their author abandoned any interest in being the Voice of a Generation. Instead, Bob Dylan embarked on a far more personal and enigmatic quest that continues to this day. Marqusee makes a case for appreciating Dylan’s finger-pointing songs as more than apprentice work and proves an able explainer of the tether between them and their era.” –Rolling Stone
