Pressestimmen"Disenchanting Les Bons Temps is an outstanding and original contribution to both the literatures on popular/folk music and to contemporary debates about the practice of cultural studies." Lawrence Grossberg, author of Bringing It All Back Home: Essays on Cultural Studies "Charles J. Stivale has a unique ability to bring together his deep and fluent understanding of Deleuzean theory with his passion and enthusiasm for Cajun music. It's not an obvious combination of elements, but Stivale pulls it off with grace and skill. I attribute that to the clear way that his love for the diverse ingredients of this scholarly gumbo shine through his prose." Gilbert B. Rodman, author of Elvis after Elvis: The Posthumous Career of a Living Legend
