Dispatches From the Culture Wars PDF

by Danny Goldberg At a time when the American left is foundering, Danny Goldberg stands tall. A maverick champion of First Amendment rights, he has also been pop culture's most vocal defender against assault by anyone who uses entertainment as a scapegoat for social problems, from violence to lousy test scores. In Dispatches from the Culture Wars, Goldberg takes a hard look at what has happened to American cultural politics since the turbulent sixties, particularly in the area of censorship. Goldberg's vantage point is fascinating. As a journalist, publicist, manager, producer, and, ultimately, head of four different major record companies, he has nurtured some of the most signicant musical artists of his time, from Bonnie Raitt and Neil Young to KISS, Madonna, Sonic Youth, and Nirvana. He has made audio recordings of such controversial intellectuals as Allen Ginsberg and Timothy Leary and has gone head-to-head with every politician from Ronald Reagan to Ralph Nader to Joseph Lieberman and John McCain. A lively, totally original, no-holds-barred commentary on the cultural state of the union from the 1960s to the present, Dispatches from the Culture Wars speaks to those disenfranchised by today's tepid, cautious liberal elite.
