For a while, I had been thinking that what we feminist popular music scholars really need is a book about gender and popular music that brings together and surveys the existing research. So I was delighted when I heard about Kearney’s new book. Gender and Rock is a cultural studies textbook aimed at undergraduate students and accessible to media, cultural studies, and sociology students. Popular music students would also find the textbook very useful, although it is aimed at those who have never studied popular music before. Kearney argues that when it comes to rock, a cultural studies approach is suitable because rock is more than just the music. It is a culture, a discourse, and part of ideology.
