The role of motion pictures in the popularity of rock music became increasingly significant in the latter twentieth century. Rock music and its interaction with film is the subject of this significant book that re-examines and extends Serge Denisoff's pioneering observations of this relationship.Prior to Saturday Night Fever rock music had a limited role in the motion picture business. That movie's success, and the success of its soundtrack, began to change the silver screen. In 1983, with Flashdance, the situation drastically evolved and by 1984, ten soundtracks, many in the pop/rock genre, were certified platinum. Choosing which rock scores to discuss in this book was a challenging task. The authors made selections from seminal films such as The Graduate, Easy Rider, American Grafitti, Saturday Night Fever, Help!, and Dirty Dancing. However, many productions of the period are significant not because of their success, but because of their box office and record store failures.Risky Business chronicles the interaction of two major mediums of mass culture in the latter twentieth century. This book is essential for those interested in communications, popular culture, and social change.

The editors have shown great care in covering classic debates while moving the field into new, exciting areas of scholarship. International in its focus and pleasantly wide-ranging across historical periods, the Handbook is accessible to students but full of material of interest to those teaching and researching in the field." - Will Straw, McGill University "Celebrating the maturation of popular music studies and recognizing the immense changes that have recently taken place in the conditions of popular music production, The SAGE Handbook of Popular Music features contributions from many of the leading scholars in the field. Every chapter is well defined and to the point, with bibliographies that capture the history of the field. Authoritative, expertly organized and absolutely up-to-date, this collection will instantly become the backbone of teaching and research across the Anglophone world and is certain to be cited for years to come." - Barry Shank, author of 'The Political Force of Musical Beauty' (2014) The SAGE Handbook of Popular Music provides a highly comprehensive and accessible summary of the key aspects of popular music studies. The text is divided into 9 sections: Theory and Method The Business of Popular Music Popular Music History The Global and the Local The Star System Body and Identity Media Technology Digital Economies Each section has been chosen to reflect both established aspects of popular music studies as well as more recently emerging sub-fields.

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.
