American Music at the Turn of a New Century
This chapter discusses American music and its characterization as a varied collection of hybrid or creolized forms, stressing that it is possible to accept the diversity of American music, while recognizing that this diversity occurs through the efforts of individuals and communities which have different and opposing perspectives on America. It also examines the debates on American identity and American music, concluding that no history of music, American or otherwise, can be complete without keeping the relations of power in mind.
