The book "Race, Rock, And Elvis" by Michael T. Bertrand is an examination of the social and cultural impact of the rise of rock 'n' roll in general and Elvis in particular, in the southern states of America in the 1950s. Until recently the book was available only as a relatively expensive hardback. However, the book has now been published in paperback by the University of Illinois Press. The book is recommended to anyone interested in the wider significance of Elvis and popular music.
