This briefer, more accessible edition of our best-selling survey text describes American music as a panorama of distinct yet parallel streams--hip-hop and Latin; folk and country; gospel and classical; jazz, blues, and rock-that reflect the uniquely diverse character of the United States.

The teenage years hold more beauty, adventure, heartbreak, and love than any other time in a person's life. Teenagers live the way young people should-carelessly and perhaps even foolishly. Walking us through an amalgam of emotion and experiences is young poet Karina Williams, open to sharing her truth.
Live, Laugh, Love Like a Teenager gives readers a look into what it means and how it feels to be young. Take a journey through the inner workings of teenagers' minds. Sometimes, they break and burn everything in their path; other times, they embrace the gift of life. Every experience, good or bad, leads to the eventual discovery of who they are.
Here, there is depression, heartbreak, and wanderlust--yet, there is also first love and exciting exploits. Smiles hide deep pain, but strong friendships sustain through even the most testing times. Growing from naive innocence to skepticism, teens become adults, but first, they discover what it really is to live young, laugh often, and love recklessly."
This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
