Language: English
Description: This book interprets the image and music of Elvis Presley to explore how they have evolved to create such a powerful and enduring myth. The book reveals how, as the most prominent performer of the rock and roll era and as a global superstar, Elvis was revolutionary. He challenged the established relationship between black and white culture fundamentally; drew the attention to the social needs of women and young people; promoted the value of Southern creativity; functioned as a bridge figure between folk roots and modernity and became a controversial figure of American unity.
