About the Author
Mark Doyle is professor of history at Middle Tennessee State University. He is the author of Fighting Like the Devil for the Sake of God: Protestants, Catholics, and the Origins of Violence in Belfast and the editor of The British Empire: A Historical Encyclopedia.
"This is the kind of critical work I love best: cogent, insightful, well-written, a bit quixotic, and showing a complete mastery of the subject. Doyle brings something else entirely to the growing library of Kinks histories and memoirs. Just as Dave Davies provided the sonic architecture for entire genres of rock, Ray's songwriting established him as the quintessential London chronicler of the twentieth century. The Kinks are well worthy of this deeply researched book, delivered with analytical rigor and wit."--David Smay, author of "Swordfishtrombones" (33 1/3) and coeditor of "Lost in the Grooves"
