Footsteps in the Dark: The Hidden Histories of Popular Music by George Lipsitz

Buy: Bookshop.org | Chicago Public Library

George Lipsitz is one of the most important and insightful American cultural historians of the last few decades, known for writing such books as The Possessive Investment in Whiteness: How White People Profit from Identity Politics. His work on music does a better job than most at incorporating academic concepts and terminology into useful and accessible essays and chapters. This 2007 book looks primarily at music movements and moments from the 1990s and 2000s. I’ve read more than half of the book so far, and I appreciate Lipsitz’s wide range of musical subject matter and expertise. The book is very theoretically sophisticated, but very much worth reading for anyone interested in pop, hip hop, jazz, EDM, salsa, and other forms and their connections to the wider world.
