Popular Song in AmericaBook - 1979 | 1st ed
Charles Hamm begins with the music that eighteenth-century America imported and goes on to the minstrel shows, Stephen Foster and the songs of the Civil War, the giants of Tin Pan Alley (Berlin, Gershwin, Kern, Porter), and rock 'n' roll. Concluding with a brief survey of the current decade, he makes some cogent observations on popular song as a genre.
