Book Review: Woodstock at 50

Subtitled "Anatomy of a Revolution," Prewett's book is the thinking man's look back at the legendary Woodstock festival, making it much more than about the music. It's about the event's wider meaning, it's impact on world culture and how it engendered a sense of belonging for an entire generation. Q&A interviews with Michael Shrieve, Joe McDonald, D.A. Pennebaker, Dick Cavett and assorted academics not only yield engrossing recollections and insights about the event, but also delve into the connection between music and politics and how music can act as a powerful tool for revolution.
