Book News Annotation:

The revised second edition of this introductory textbook on American popular music now begins with a new "more accessible" chapter on the elements and identity of popular music, using Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry as illustrations, before treating its subject matter in a chronological fashion, traveling from the early minstrel shows to electronica and hip-hop. An audio CD is packaged with some iterations of the text (not this one).
