Highway 61 Revisited-Bob Dylan’s Road from Minnesota to the World, is a new book about Bob Dylan’s roots and his journey from Iron Range resident to global superstar.
New essays consider Dylan’s latest work, his Minnesota roots, and his global reach
The young man from Hibbing released Highway 61 Revisited in 1965, and the rest, as they say, is history. Or is it? From his roots in Hibbing, to his rise as a cultural icon in New York, to his prominence on the worldwide stage, Colleen J. Sheehy and Thomas Swiss bring together the most eminent Dylan scholars at work today—as well as people from such far-reaching fields as labor history, African American studies, and Japanese studies—to assess Dylan’s career, influences, and his global impact on music and culture.
