There exists great interest in those music styles that have become a part of the American music scene. Some of these include American-born styles such as punk, folk, rhythm & blues, bluegrass, thrash, disco, jazz, and blues, soul, country, hip-hop, honky-tonk, heavy metal, and styles from abroad now nestled in American culture such as reggae, polka, Latin music, and classical music. Since the late 19th century, America remains to be a place where different musical styles and traditions are welcomed. Attributable to its diverse population and musical tastes, there exists, more so than in any other country, numerous styles of music in America.

Popular Music in America: Forging the American Spirit examines music in a chronological format. The book is organized chronologically and placed within historical parameters, thereby creating a framework for the discussion of artistic and stylistic tendencies, as well as specific influential musicians. Each time period examined includes coverage of the music, artists, and the social, political, cultural and economic environments.

Popular Music in America: Forging the American Spirit:

  • Explains the advancements in technology and its role in popular music.
  • Includes coverage of popular music in the 21st Century.
