It features a full glossary and index. This series explores: how the regional, economic and social history of the US has shaped the style of American music; the musical instruments, sounds and techniques that define a particular genre; the influence of past performers on the current generation of popular artists, such as Aerosmith, White Stripes, Norah Jones and OutKast; and, 'Have a go' boxes encourage creative writing.
