The Popular Music of the Jewish Immigrants
Awards and Recognition:
Winner of an ASCAP Deems Taylor Award, 1983.
"An excellent addition to . . . ethnomusicological studies of nontraditional music in America."
"A well-deserved look at the musical world of immigrant Jews, who, in finding and creating an expressive medium for self-identity, helped shape and give life to American popular culture."
"Employing the tools of the ethnomusicologist and the social historian, Slobin has produced an important and highly readable account of the formation and function of a little-studied aspect of American popular culture."
