Synopsis

Rock and Roll by Christopher Handyside

This is an exciting new series that charts the roots and development of American music from the 1600s to the present time. Each book has a bold and colourful design, contains clear informative text including biographies, and quotations, and has a wealth of fascinating archive and contemporary photographic material. 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 includes 'Have a go' boxes which encourage creative writing.
