A Time for Every Purpose under Heaven: Rhetorical Dimensions of Protest Music.
Knupp, Ralph E.
Southern Speech Communication Journal, v46 n4 p377-89 Sum 1981
Examines the role of a specific rhetorical form, the protest song, in social movements. Analyzes the content of songs from the labor and anti-war movements of the 1960s. Concludes that these songs--generally negative, simplistic, and expressive--are in-group messages designed to reinforce feelings of solidarity. (PD)
