From the back jacket: "One tries in vain to see the development of American music or any phase of it as a single organic process of growth. Rather, it developed, like the country itself, from a number of different starting points and in a number of different directions at once." Irving L. Sablosky has written a valuable synthesis of considerable subtlety in which all American musical forms are show in interplay, in a chronological narrative from the Jamestown settlement to the present. Because the author's approach to music is a cultural one, hsi central concern is with musical trends, styles, influences, popular and professional preoccupations, and institutions as they change and evolve with the land and the people .

American Music presents a cultural overview of the development of American music. It will be of great interset to all those concerned with the place of music in American culture.
