The People's Voice: A Populist Cultural History of Modern America chronicles the outpouring of cultural expression since the 1890s addressing the everyday experiences, aspirations, and problems of ordinary people. Starting with the legacy of nineteenth century giants like Walt Whitman, Mark Twain and Stephen Foster and advancing to contemporary film, TV, hip-hop, and country music, the book blends samples of creative writing, visual production, performing arts, and the media into a general treatment of the populist theme in the creative works of American national culture. Designed as a jargon-free cultural inventory and reference tool, the book is suitable for general readers as well as for course assignments in social-cultural history, American Studies, popular culture, cultural theory, sociology, working-class history, and Populist Studies. - Publisher.
