Book Announcement: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Protest Music After Fukushima

revolThe Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Protest Music After Fukushima, has been published by Oxford University Press.

The book explains the history of nuclear power in Japan, the sociopolitical backdrop of post-3.11 social movements, the censorial pressures that musicians are under, the political roles they have assumed, and the ways in which they have participated in four arenas of musical protest—cyberspace, demonstrations, festivals, and recordings. More information about the book can be found on the Amazon and OUP sites, the latter of which has a companion website with photos, websites, videos, and music clips.
