Altschuler shows, sexuality, how rock's "switchblade beat" opened up wide fissures in American society along the fault-lines of family, in particular, and race. The birth of rock 'n roll ignited a firestorm of controversy--one critic called it "musical riots put to a switchblade beat"--but if it generated much sound and fury, what, did it signify? As Glenn Altschuler reveals in All Shook Up, the rise of rock 'n roll--and the outraged reception to it--in fact can tell us a lot about the values of the United States in the 1950s, if anything, a decade that saw a great struggle for the control of popular culture.
