This book makes use of an interesting approach for understanding the innovative, progressive qualities of 1960s-1970s British rock music. Frith does a better job explaining 1960s mod & art rock than he does 1970s punk situationism. His theory is shakey, but his practical take on the origins of 1960s British rock remains insightful. So many musicians (from the Beatles, Pink Floyd, the Who, Cream, etc.) of the era were art school graduates, freshly educated in the latest art theories. And it seems obvious that their education plays out in their innovative approaches to popular music. It is another case study example of how postmodern frameworks of discourse operate by way of breaking down (or at least re-ordering) barriers between high & low art. The book captivates its reader through such analysis. The treatment of punk rock, however, is lacking. Dick Hebdige is the place to look for a promising, academic analysis of punk rock.

From the inspired fiction of Jules Verne to the dark menace of the Cold War, submarines have captivated millions for more than a century. Many have been credited for the invention of the submarine, but one significant figure has been seriously overlooked by both historians and the government. Without the efforts of Simon Lake, underwater navigation would be very different from what it is today. Argonaut: The Submarine Legacy of Simon Lake illustrates the influence of Lake’s creation and passion.
