    1. An excellent year-by-year social history of the 60s, with special focus on the intersections of politics and music. Each chapter/year covers the student/anti-Vietnam movement, civil rights & black power and women's lib in the U.S as well as uprisings and protests around the world. Doggett is a very engaging writer, and his sober judgment and myth-deflating of events and personalities make for a fascinating read. (You'll never think of John Lennon or Mick Jagger and their cronies as icons of [...]


    2. Disappointing. Doggett falls victim to exactly the problem he identifies as the downfall of Sixties rock "revolutionaries": confusing their insular universe with the larger political landscape. There's a ton of fascinating detail about the relationship between rock musicians and the more radical wings of the movement. But Doggett's roughly as deluded about the importance of fringe elements of various Marxist groups as the musicians he criticizes. If you accept his take, A.J. Weberman (wackdoodle [...]


    3. This book follows the counter-culture's various political movements from 1965 to 1972. Most of the information focuses on the happenings in the U.S though Peter Doggett does touch upon other countries and how the turmoil connected. Doggett covers the Weathermen, the Black Power groups, Yippies, the start of the Women's Movement, the political activists such as Abbie Hoffman, and the musicians who got involved. Doggett gives us insight into why the underground movements took off the way they did, [...]


    4. This was a good, but not great, survey of the ongoing dialog (for lack of a better term) between the music community and the peace/civil rights movement between the mid-60s through 1972. Doggett carefully avoids lionizing his subjects - Rubin, Hoffman, Dylan, Lennon, etc. - and is extremely critical (for good reason) of the lack of attention gave to the feminist and gay rights movements by the rock community. Kudos also are due for not restricting to the traditional rock cannon, but also touchin [...]


    5. We just got this in the bookstore. The American edition is now released, and it looks very interesting. Right now reading Richard Brody's crit-bio on Jean-Luc Godard and even though I was a little tot, I remember the late 60's being such an interesting era in radical politics of all sorts and stripes. Godard was one of the main figures in that era, as well as a cast of thousands. I think what's so sad right now is the mass population (at least in America) is so conservative in its thinking and a [...]


    6. The challenge reading something like this is not having a stand-alone knowledge base to work off of that matches the scope that the book covers. That being said: I learned a lot.I would love to see something like this written post-2016; the parallels seem too clear to ignore.


    7. this book was a waste of time. a discredit to the movments of the 60s. very poor research on the Black Panthers. paints musicians in a terrible light. really a terrible read as well.



    8. A highly enjoyable look at the high point of sixties rebellion and its relationship with the counter culture and musicians of varying sincerity. The story is a complex brew of brave rebellion, of the oppressed and exploited fighting back alongside confused politics, often surreal, sometimes tragic events - set to a thumping musical soundtrack. (As an aside, folks might be interested in this humble effort by me:culturematters/index )


    9. Peter Doggettin erinomainen "There's a Riot Going On" käsittelee vuosien 1966-1972 vallankumouksellista ilmapiiriä, yhteiskunnallis-poliittisia ja kulttuurillisia aatesuuntauksia ja kaiken taustalla soivaa populaarimusiikkia.Teoksessa käsitellään aihetta laajasti: palstatilaa saavat niin mustien kansalaisoikeustaistelu, Vietnamin sotaa vastustanut liikehdintä kuin feministien ja homoseksuaalien käymä kamppailu omien oikeuksiensa puolesta. Vähän yli viidensadan sivun aikana lukijalle tu [...]


    10. The author came of age in the early 1970s, during the beginning of the perceived decline of the hippie subculture which I guess kinda informs his perspective in many ways. In a way, the book does almost as much to de-romanticize that era as Hunter Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and Thomas Pynchon's "Inherent Vice". Many of the people involved in the countercultural movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s come across as either incredibly naïve, downright hypocritical or just giv [...]


    11. I'll give the author credit for trying to wrap together so many different concepts and actions that could loosely be labeled "youth rebellion" and try to create a coherent whole. That being said he misses the mark wildly. He bounces back and forth with no rhyme or reason and spends more time examining Prague, 1968 which really affected the left in the USA very little than he does paris 68 which did. Outside of rock music he touched very little on other US trends of the period, art, fashion etc. [...]


    12. This is a compelling and detailed history of politics and music of the sixties and there relationship. What I found limited was its over all emphasis on failure, as if "the revolution" should have been achieved - and sustained. I want to hear about how ongoing all those innovations have also been: the way it has changed many aspects of global culture indelibly How positive many of those changes have been. To use an analogy: just because we brought the flowers and the songs to the wedding didn't [...]


    13. Functional chronological roll-call of most of the revolutionary protest groups and their actions from 1965 to 1972 that is grim to read but interesting enough. Nixon's massive landslide election win in 72 is presented as the endgame - the moment 'the man' shafted the 60's spirit conclusively and rendered so-called revolutionary figures as Hoffman, Rubin et al meaningless.Allen Ginsberg's quote sums up the author's view nicely it seems - "More and more, by hindsight, I think all of our activity i [...]


    14. Yes, five stars. Unputdownable, close to fascinating if this period of history interests you, and it should, or if you simply wonder why the revolutions didn't produce many, if any, of the good changes we still need. Astonishingly well written.


    15. Really interesting record of the 60s counter-culture which isn't afraid to be critical of major figures, whether members of the Black Panthers or John Lennon.



    16. This book assumes a level of knowledge about the subject that I just didn't have. Its very, very detailed and I soon lost track of who was who and what group they belonged to.
