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.

European cultural capital report by Robert Palmer( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Cultural Capital event (ECOC) is arguably one of the most successful EU cultural programmes, attracting increasing interest from policy makers, academics and the media every year. As more and more cities are involved in competing for the ECOC title, there is also a growing need for information about and evaluation of the event and the host cities. The European Cultural Capital Report aims to update the wealth of information contained in the original ECOC evaluation report produced by Robert Palmer, Greg Richards and other experts for the European Commission. In doing so, it aims to provide essential information for those organising, implementing and evaluating the ECOC. This report seeks to cover the many different aspects of the event, including its cultural, economic, organisational, political and social implications. It provides an independent analysis of the ECOC, identifying trends and best practice which can help those involved with this and other major cultural events to take better informed decisions. By extending and enriching the data collected for the Palmer Report, this publication will provide new insights into the workings and function of the ECOC
