American Music Series
Edited by Jessica Hopper, David Menconi, and Oliver Wang
American popular music evolves quickly, and it is perhaps the most pervasive cultural product in the world today. Written for pop music enthusiasts of all stripes, books in this series treat important, enduring, and perhaps under-recognized aspects of our most dynamic art form. Any definition of American music must encompass the full diversity of people, genres, and forces that have shaped it, and to that end the series publishes cultural histories, essay collections, critical artist biographies, memoirs, as well as other forms of inventive storytelling.
