Description:

American Popular Music: From Minstrelsy to MP3 examines popular music in the United States from its beginnings into the 21st century, offering a comprehensive look at the music, the cultural history of the times, and the connections between them. Using well-chosen examples and insightful commentaries, this text traces the development of jazz, blues, country, rock, Motown, hip-hop, and other popular styles, highlighting the contributions of diverse groups to the creation of distinctly American styles. It combines an in-depth treatment of the music itself-including discussions of stylistic elements and analyses of musical examples-with solid coverage of the music's attendant historical, social, and cultural circumstances.
