Summary

American music. It is an edited collection of articles written by the top authorities on different musical styles and cultural issues in African-American music. After an introductory section on African antecedents, the main section of the book focuses on musical genres and styles, moving more or less chronologically from folk traditions through blues, ragtime, jazz, and musical theater to art/classical music and then to the popular traditions of the last decades from R&B to rap and hiphop. Each article consists of a chronological overview, followed by a chapter on interpreting the musical style. Finally, a section of "processes" reviews the aesthetics of African-American culture and music as both a force of cultural resistance and change and of global hegemony. Besides textbook use in colleges and advanced high schools, this book should also appeal to libraries and to the general reader.
