Ann van der Merwe explores how the standards of the American songbook were shaped by the culture of the early twentieth century and how these standards have shaped musical culture since. The American Songbook explores key aspects of individual song's popularizations, addressing how and why the tradition of standards was eventually usurped by rock and roll in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as how it has continued to hold historic, nostalgic, and contemporary value for listeners.
