"The growing pains the American art music community suffered during the search for a national musical identity, argues Levy, were largely the result of conflict between musicians of traditional Western European sensibilities and those who looked to indigenous vernacular sources.... Well conceived, well written, and well documented, and recommended for scholars and serious lay readers." -Library Journal
