AMERICAN POPULAR MUSIC: A MULTICULTURAL HISTORY offers an innovative approach to popular music appreciation. The book treats major cultural sources, including African American, Latino, and European American styles and artists, in chronological fashion while also investigating less-visible cultural influences. The history of popular music in America offers an excellent example of cultural exchange. No other college textbook in publication addresses the subject of American popular music from a multicultural perspective in this thorough manner.
