Rock & Roll: An Unruly History is a full-scale salute to rock that is also a companion to the ten-part public television series, illuminating the roots of rock and exploring the "rock and roll culture" that surrounds the music. Robert Palmer, a preeminent rock critic and musician who was the chief advisor for the public television series, explores the complex creative processes that have allowed rock music to endure as a living art, fed from sources deep within nonconformist, anti-mainstream, often multiethnic American culture. By focusing on its roots and branchings, Palmer charts rock's ongoing developmental processes, showing how its many tributaries - from blues and gospel to reggae, punk, and rap - converge and connect to create the most insightful history of rock and roll ever written

Focuses on the contributions of Memphis and New Orleans, the most important Southern recording centers in the transition from rhythm-and-blues and country-and-western music—two popular idioms identified with particular racial and socioeconomic groups—to rock-and-roll, a phenonemon that cut across existing racial and musical barriers. It addresses itself to some larger questions as well. Just what is rock-and-roll, and how does it differ from black rhythm-and-blues and white country music? What are some of the factors that made music in Memphis and music in New Orleans so different, even in the rock-and-roll era?
