Music has been the cornerstone of popular culture in the United States since the beginning of our nation's history.

This four-volume encyclopedia examines music's influence on contemporary American life, tracing historical connections over time.

Music in American Life: An Encyclopedia of the Songs, Styles, Stars, and Stories That Shaped Our Culture demonstrates the symbiotic relationship between this art form and our society. Entries include singers, composers, lyricists, songs, musical genres, places, instruments, technologies, music in films, music in political realms, and music shows on television.
