- This analysis of Taylor Swift's music critically examines all of the young artist's works to date. The book's organization is primarily chronological, covering Taylor Swift's album and single releases in order of release date while also documenting the elements of her music and personality that have made her popular with fans of country music and pop music across a surprisingly diverse age-range of listeners. The chapters address how Swift's songs have been viewed by some fans as anthems of empowerment or messages of encouragement. The final chapter places Swift's work and her public persona in the context of her times with respect to her use of and relationship with technology - for example, her use of social media and songwriting technology - and her expressions of a new type of feminism that is unlike the feminism of the 1970s.
