How did a European social dance craze become part of an American presidential election? Why did the recording industry become racially divided? Where did rock ‘n’ roll really come from? And how do all these things continue to reverberate in today’s world?

Drawing connections between new styles of music like the minstrel show, jazz, and rock ‘n’ roll, and emerging technologies like the locomotive, the first music recordings, and the transistor radio, Broyles argues that these decades fundamentally remade our cultural landscape in enduring ways.
