Anmeldelser

«Peter Doggett's weighty tome is a treasure trove of countercultural anecdotes and reportage.»

* New Statesman *

«Tells the story in an exemplary way.»

* Financial Times *

«Doggett has mastered hundreds of interviews, contemporary accounts and documents to put together this meticulously researched, scholarly and often gripping portrait of an era.»

* Sunday Telegraph *

«Doggett examines the era with brilliant, creative meticulousness, song by song, riot by riot, poem by poem, dispelling myths...and uncovering truths...until you get caught inextricably up in the whirlwind of the greatest decade on record. Absolutely unmissable.»

* Maxim *

«

Doggett's voluminous record unveils the hippie dream of remaking the world as mere fashion.

»

* Sunday Herald *

«Doggett's encyclopaedic account of Sixties counter-culture is a fascinating history of pop's relationship with politics, examining the establishment's skill at assimilating rock 'n' roll rebellion into the mainstream.»

* Independent *

«Doggett has a brisk, readable style, with an astute eye for the idiosyncrasies of the period.»

* Telegraph *

«...a fresh and near-definitive slant on a subject you might have thought had been picked clean by journalists and historians.»

* Time Out *

«Peter Doggett's There's a Riot Going On is a lot of fun, but it also needs to be read by anyone who wants to understand the significance of the 60s or the role of pop culture. It is a very important book and I am sure I will go back to it numerous times.»

* Mark Kurlansky, author of 1968 and Salt *

«An impressive account.»

* Observer *
