Book Chapter

A chapter I wrote about protest music and the Vietnam War will be included in an upcoming anthology on war, media and communication. The book is scheduled to be published next year by McFarland & Company, Inc., of Jefferson, N.C.

In the chapter, I explain how protest songs functioned as alternative media during the Vietnam War era, raising issues and asking questions that were absent from, or downplayed by, mainstream media. It evolved from a shorter piece I authored a few years ago – The Ability Of Protest Music To Serve As An Alternative Media And Effect Social Change.
