Bob Dylan is one of the most significant figures in popular culture. In this book, the authors also provide a multi-faceted analysis of his political art. They address Dylan's career as a whole, dealing with such themes as alienation, protest, non-conformity, the American Dream and pivotal moments of Dylan's career such as the 'Judas' accusation at the 1966 Manchester Free Trade Hall concert. Dylan's songs are analysed for their political meaning, and the context of the songs in contemporary American political and popular culture is also examined. As notable specialists in the fields of political theory, literary criticism and popular culture, the authors examine Dylan's work from a variety of perspectives - aesthetic theory, Kant, Adorno, Lyotard, Lorca and Collingwood. Collectively, they question how Dylan's work relates to the theory and practice of politics.
