'Good Booty:' A book about music, love, sex and religion

Eroticism has always been a driving force in American popular music. And American popular music has always shaped American ideas -- not just about sex, but also love, race, spirituality, feminism, and freedom. A new book explores the history of how popular music has helped us confront issues like sexuality and race.
