CHESTER SPRINGS, Pa. - June 26, 2014 - PRLog -- Candy Leonard, sociologist and author of the forthcoming Beatleness: How The Beatles and Their Fans Remade The World (Arcade, August 2014; ISBN 162872417X) is available for interviews just in time for the July re-release of the newly remastered Beatles' classic A Hard Day's Night.

Candy’s unique, fan-centered, sociological approach to the entire Beatle phenomenon includes a fresh take on the film’s subversive messages about age, gender, and class, and shows how the film­—and the Beatles’ “disruptive charisma”—paved the way for the cultural revolution we refer to as “the sixties.”

Early reviews of Beatleness:

      "[Beatleness] is breezy, smart and open-hearted, and everyone who grew up with the band—or wants to know what that was like—will appreciate its insights and feel its emotional impact.” - Anthony DeCurtis, contributing editor, Rolling Stone

         “I love this book! It’s an incredibly hip and astute account of all the Beatles’ major happenings that affected so many people around the world who were riveted to their every move. I can’t wait to read it again!” - Will Lee, Grammy Award–winning bass player and studio musician, Late Show with David Letterman and Fab Faux

      “A fascinating study of the Beatles’ resounding impact upon late-twentieth-century American culture. . . . While hundreds of Beatles books stake claims about being the definitive work, Leonard’s Beatleness finally gets to the heart of the matter, offering readers new insights into the unusual and lasting nature of Beatles fandom."- Kenneth Womack, author of Long and Winding Roads: The Evolving Artistry of the Beatles and The Beatles Encyclopedia: Everything Fab Four

  - How did fans of different ages and genders react to A Hard Day's Night at the time?
