This is a definitive book on the politics of Bob Dylan. It comprehensively investigates Dylan's relationship to the social, political, and religious cultures that acted upon him and to which he reacted. Generally associated with the New Left politics of the 1960s, Dylan's political world view transcends that narrow description. The ideas he has expressed in songs and interviews can be categorized as traditional, populist, and Christian anarchistic. From his youth in Minnesota to the present, Dylan has embodied a political view that supports the underdog, questions those in power, and subscribes to sacred, universal truths.Robert Griffith, ed., Major Problems in American History Since 1945: Documents and Essays (Lexington, MA: D.C.
