Tempo: A Rowman & Littlefield Music Series on Rock, Pop, and Culture
Tempo: A Rowman & Littlefield Music Series of Rock, Pop, and Culture offers titles that explore popular music genres through the lens of social and cultural history, revealing the dynamic relationship between musicians, music, and their world. Like other major art forms, music comments on its cultural, political, and even economic situation, reflecting the technological advances, psychological concerns, religious feelings, and artistic trends of their times. Each volume features a dual timeline of the artist’s life and major historical and cultural events during the artist’s career, along with Further Reading and Further Listening lists.

Whether you are a professional musician or regular listener, diehard fan or music student, titles in the Tempo series are the ideal introduction to major pop and rock artists and the music they produced and their cultural and musical impact on society.

Inquiries and submissions may be addressed to series editor Scott Calhoun at calhouns@cedarville.edu.
