Book News Annotation:

Huss (philosophy, U. of Akron) and Werther (philosophy, U. of Wisconsin) present 18 essays philosophically engaging the life and songs of the late country music legend Johnny Cash. Contributions discuss Cash and authenticity, Cash's portrayal of work and the good life, the populism of Cash, June Carter Cash and the power of love, themes of hope and redemption in Cash's music, questions raised by Cash (famously committed to prison concerts--"San Quentin, I hate every inch of you," he sang at San Quentin) about the nature of justice and the American penal system, and Cash's Christian worldview, among other topics. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Interest in the Man in Black has grown since his death in 2003, with increased record sales, cover videos by groups like Nine Inch Nails, and the 2006 biopic Walk the Line cementing his fame. This book honors Cash by examining the many philosophical issues and concepts within his music. From the gender confusion of “A Boy Named Sue” to the ethics of "shooting a man just to watch him die,” philosophers who are fans of Johnny Cash explore the meaning and continuing importance of his work and legacy.
