Literature of American Music III, 1983-1992 is the second supplement to the original Literature of American Music in Books and Folk Music Collections. Taken together, the three volumes provide a comprehensive inventory of the 5,100 books representing the core literature on American music. This volume cites and critically annotates monographs on American music published from 1983 to 1992, but does not include literature in folk music collections. More than 1,300 entries cover all aspects of American music, including folk, blues, jazz, rock, music of major cities, festivals, the music industry, instruments, music education, and music for TV and film. Entries are arranged according to Library of Congress classification numbers, which allows librarians to check their own holdings. Each citation provides full imprint data, ISBN, facts about earlier editions, series notes, references to reviews in standard media, descriptions of favorable and unfavorable features, and special notes of reference elements such as indexes and bibliographies. Includes title and subject indexes. Author indexing is included in the Checklist of Writings on American Music, 1640-1992.
