Donna Gains - Class of 1968 - New Book Due Out in October

Hello Skip!

These days I’m a surfy professor of sociology in the SUNY system enjoying life in Long Beach NY. My new book, *Why The Ramones Matter* will be published by Texas University Press in October 2018. Part eulogy, part encomium, the book examines the historical, social, cultural, personal and political impact of the mighty Ramones who honored our homeland with their legendary song, “Rockaway Beach....not far, not hard to reach.” Below, in June with CJ Ramone, their bass player and keeper of the faith.
