Wenner writes that this weighty volume ''attempts to track rock and roll -as music, as culture, as headline maker, as business - from its hazy origins through to the present day. Given three interesting writers and a challenging subject, one expects, and gets, three interesting chapters. Ed Ward's good-humored, deeply felt look at the 50's is best. Ward sees the invention of the synthesizer, the ascent of Sputnik and the rise of Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry as equally important facets of a kind of cultural watershed - a single, explosive moment whose reverberations are still being felt. By comparison, Geoffrey Stokes's 60's chapters read too much like a laundry list and fail to find metaphors capable of illuminating the era as a whole.
