Reviews

A rollicking account of how a global genre was transformed as it sank down roots in a very special setting. --Jeffrey Wasserstrom, author, China in the 21st Century: What Everyone Needs to Know
A vivid and faithful description of Chinese rock, Jon Campbell has achieved a significant feat with this book. --Hao Fang, former editor Rolling Stone (China)
In-depth, thoughtful, and well-written. . . . An especially welcome addition to world music collections. --Library Journal (October 15, 2011)
Jonathan Campbell's Red Rock has the narrative power of a fine novel, and is at the same time a cogent work of historical analysis . . . the benchmark against which all future accounts of the phenomenon will be measured. --Teng Jimeng, author, Music-Made America: Popular Music Since 1960s
The ancient rhythms of East meets West have rarely been played out so intensely or at such a raucous volume. --Jonathan Watts, author, When a Billion Chinese Jump
The West has largely forgotten the power of rock 'n' roll. . . . In China, the music never has seemed more vital or necessary, and as an astute listener, sharp journalist, and excellent writer, Campbell does an outstanding job explaining why. --Jim Derogatis, rock critic, co-host of Sound Opinions
