New book by departmental alumnus Jane DeNeefe

Jane Deneefe, who received a history degree from UAH, has published a book on the history of rock and soul music in Huntsville in the 1950s and 1960s.  The book uses oral history techniques and offers insights not only on the history of music, but also of mass culture, celebrity, mass media, militarization, urbanization.  A major theme is race relations in Huntsville in the 1950s and 1960s.   Here is a review:  Left In Alabama:: Rocket City Rock and Soul: How Music Helped Integrate an Alabama City
