MEDIA REVIEWS

"Within Music in American Society, 1776-1976, journalist George McCue and a dozen diverse contributors have blended bicentennial spirit and a report on the state of the art. The volume examines: (1) Americanism in music . . . and (2) the interweaving of variant ethnic musics into the composite musical genre of today. . . . Among the examined American musics are black spirituals, field blues and jubilees, classical (Ives and electronic music), folk music, hymns, Indian music, jazz, music theater (opera, operetta, and musical comedy), and popular music. . . . Since our personal taste often limits us as students of the sociology of music, this volume can both supply missing information and challenge unwarranted presuppositions."
