All Shook Up: Music, Passion, and Politics by Carson Holloway

All Shook Up: Music, Passion, and Politics

by Carson Holloway

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 29 Min.


The national debate over popular music's effect on character is both furious and confused. Conservatives complain primarily about lyrics, appealing to public decency and safety. Liberals, swift to the defense of any self-expression, simultaneously celebrate rock's liberating ethos and deny its cultural influence. Carson Holloway is out to shatter the assumptions of pop's critics and defenders alike, showing that music is more beneficial than we think.

Plato and Aristotle, Holloway finds, were aware that music can either inflame the soul with passion or can awaken it to reason and help to cultivate temperance. What Holloway proposes, a rediscovery of the musical wisdom of Plato and Aristotle, will completely change the way we think about music.
