Carol Miller is indisputably America’s premiere female rock ’n’ roll disc jockey, as her well-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame proves. In her illuminating, fascinating, sometimes heartbreaking memoir, Up All Night, the legendary “Nightbird” tells the story of her colorful career—her rise to success in a male-dominated music industry; her close and personal dealings with rock royalty like Bruce Springsteen (whose music she first introduced to New York radio), Sir Paul McCartney, and Steven Tyler (whom she dated)—and details openly and honestly her battle against breast cancer for the very first time.

Rock Miller, elemento di spicco della più importante e segreta Agenzia di spionaggio statunitense, ha trascorso ben tre anni in un carcere d massima sicurezza per un crimine mai commesso. Non è stato lui a provocare la morte dei suoi compagni di missione in uno sciagurato attentato, ma l'interesse che ruota attorno al diabolico Magic Otero, farmaco sperimentale in grado di procurare ringiovanimenti prodigiosi per i quali in tanti sembrano disposti ad uccidere, e uccidere parecchio.

Per lei l'Agenzia ha studiato una missione impossibile: eliminare Rock Miller, ormai solo una mina vagante di cui liberarsi nella maniera più veloce e indolore possibile. Fra i due saranno subito scintille mentre gli incubi e i fantasmi personali di Ken sembreranno ritornare e moltiplicarsi. Mistero ed erotismo dalla prima all'ultima pagina per un romanzo audace e spregiudicato. Consigliato ad un pubblico di lettori adulti.

In his 1967 megahit "San Francisco," Scott McKenzie sang of "people in motion" coming from all across the country to San Francisco, the white-hot center of rock music and anti-war protests. At the same time, another large group of young Americans was also in motion, less eagerly, heading for the jungles of Vietnam. Now, in The Republic of Rock, Michael Kramer draws on new archival sources and interviews to explore sixties music and politics through the lens of these two generation-changing places--San Francisco and Vietnam. From the Acid Tests of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters to hippie disc jockeys on strike, the military's use of rock music to "boost morale" in Vietnam, and the forgotten tale of a South Vietnamese rock band, The Republic of Rock shows how the musical connections between the City of the Summer of Love and war-torn Southeast Asia were crucial to the making of the sixties counterculture. The book also illustrates how and why the legacy of rock music in the sixties continues to matter to the meaning of citizenship in a global society today. Going beyond clichéd narratives about sixties music, Kramer argues that rock became a way for participants in the counterculture to think about what it meant to be an American citizen, a world citizen, a citizen-consumer, or a citizen-soldier. The music became a resource for grappling with the nature of democracy in larger systems of American power both domestically and globally. For anyone interested in the 1960s, popular music, and American culture and counterculture, The Republic of Rock offers new insight into the many ways rock music has shaped our ideas of individual freedom and collective belonging.
