Booklist Review

Gr. 7^-12. Politics and the struggle for human rights are an integral part of this Latino art history. Whether Cockcroft is talking about the rediscovery of traditional Indian art, the community murals on city streets, or the culture of living on the border, "uprooted yet putting down roots," he makes you value "people's art," to be viewed not in imposing museums but as part of public life. At the same time, he does talk about individual Latino artists--one chapter each on Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, and Cuban Americans--with stirring detail about their images of beauty, magic, humor, family love, spiritual faith, and social commitment. It makes you want to see the individual works. Two inserts of full-color plates provide just a taste of the visual; there are also prints in black and white and several short, boxed biographies of leading artists. Chapter notes, bibliographies, and a list of online sites will help those who want to see more. --Hazel Rochman


School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-10-A broad but generally successful overview. While most of the volumes focus on styles of music, others cover such topics as music as a profession; instruments and new technologies; theater and film music; and voice and song, including an exploration of how voice has been used in the creation of music. Folk, Country, and Cajun Music focuses on U.S. traditions, but an earlier volume does mention its place in other cultures. The usefulness of this set is slightly diminished by the uneven quality of the writing. Music of Stage and Screen is one of the weaker volumes; its overview of Broadway music degenerates into a listing of shows without much additional information. The books are attractively designed with black-and-white and full-color photos, historical drawings, reproductions, and diagrams that provide additional insight. This clear and accessible resource will be used for browsing and assignments.-Tim Wadham, Maricopa County Library District, Phoenix, AZ (c) Copyright 2010.
