MEDIA REVIEWS
Ground-breaking...a welcome document on a significant aspect of music in American society. * Ethnomusicology *
A contribution of significant value to the study of American music, and one hopes for other, similar studies of the wide spectrum of the musics of ethnic communities. An excellent addition for nearly every academic and public library. * CHOICE *
