Description - Footsteps in the Dark by George Lipsitz

This book offers imaginative interpretations of a wide range of popular music genres from jazz to salsa to rock. Sweeping changes that only remotely register in official narratives, Lipsitz argues, can exist in vivid relief within popular music, especially when these changes occur outside mainstream white culture. Teeming with astute observations and brilliant insights about race and racism, deindustrialization, and urban renewal and their connections to music, Footsteps in the Dark puts forth an alternate history of post-cold war America and shows why in an era given to easy answers and cliched versions of history, pop songs matter more than ever.
