TOP REVIEWS FROM HISTORY OF ROCK, PART TWO
Good course but too much focus on US and UK and too much on racial and gender issues - focus on the music
More than a course on history of rock, is a course on history of culture and american society in the 20th century. Recommended.
A great course especially if you follow along with the book and use the extra videos and music links from the book's website.
Similar to Part One, but continues with the history of rock into more recent times (1990s). Very short course compared to the other one. Pros and cons from Part One apply to Part Two.
