Book Description

Organized, authored, and edited over the course of five months by a class of eighteen Virginia Tech undergraduate students, Welcome to the Beatles represents their collective contribution to the larger scholarship on the most important band in rock history. The chapters build upon the work of noted author and historian Mark Lewisohn and take into account many of the recurring issues in Beatles historiography. The student authors have the advantage of being generations apart from the Beatles and can reexamine the band without any first-hand experience with the Fab Four. The result is a book that raises significant issues about the whole of Beatles history.
