Première phrase
The results of an easy victory in the Spanish American War left Americans with a feeling that they were justified in taking over new lands to Christianize them, according to speeches delivered by President McKinley. Lire la première page

Fascinating review of America's social history through her song lyrics 26 août 2009
Par James J. Bloom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I would have given this five stars but for a few nitpicking instances where the lyrics differed slightly from the sheet music in my collection of rare American songs circa 1890s-1920, but ---this is, as I said nitpicking. It might be that the authors were taking the lyrics as they heard them rather than as they appeared in print. I only found three cases anyhow and the sense of the song was not altered.

I was pleased to find a wide range of topics, not just the usual lovelorn man/woman singing the virtues of his mate, or pining away from unrequited love. One small criticism. One of my favorites, Down in Jungle Town (1908) is characterized as a monkey song that is racist in that it analogizes African-Americans with the wild simians.

I didn't get this impression at all. To me it was one of the many "monkey craze" songs of the period around 1907-1920, in which the songwriters thought it would be "cute" to endow the critters with human pretensions. Not that there weren't plenty of racist songs during that period---many of which the authors amply illustrate.

I especially enjoyed the Jewish-themed song selection in which Jewish songwriters poked fun at their own roots. No doubt many of these songs were enjoyed by some anti-Semites as confirming their stereotypes.

All in all this collection, conveniently arranged on a year-by-year basis, is great casual browsing and provides food for thought--- or song.

Sheet music and history 2 août 2009
Par Lee R. Schreiner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
An excellent use of music lyrics to explicate the history of 1900 to 1945. Sheet music collectors may be disappointed that many sheets she uses are rare and obscure but overall a well done survey
