Critique: "A fascinating and inspiring collection of essays on rock music's fifty-year journey through the Americas. Read it to understand that Anglo-Saxon rock is neither the only rock story nor even the most interesting (but be warned that it left me with a list of records that I'll have to spend the rest of my lifetime tracking down)." - Simon Frith, author of Performing Rites: On the Value of Popular Music; "From La Onda Chicana in Mexico to doo-wop in revolutionary Cuba, from Brazilian soul to punk rockeras in East Los Angeles,... [Rockin' Las Americas] offers the most comprehensive and multidisciplinary analysis of the ways in which rock musics have embodied the conflicts of the times in Latin America and in Latino U.S.A." - Frances R. Aparicio, author of Listening to Salsa: Gender, Latin Popular Music, and Puerto Rican Cultures"
