Richard Carlin, Sr. Acquisitions Editor

SUNY Press is building a new list of books on music, including textbooks, scholarly monographs, and trade titles. Forthcoming series include introductions to popular musical styles and textbooks on music history and theory.

Our Series in Music:

Jazz Styles, SUNY Press, ed.
NEW SERIES: We are actively soliciting submissions. SUNY Press Jazz Styles publishes brief, introductory volumes aimed at the general reader and college-level student who wishes to learn more about the basic jazz genres, from the turn of the twentieth century to today. These volumes are designed to highlight each style's key performers and promoters, how it has evolved over time, and what its continuing relevance is today.

Contemporary Writings on Jazz, Ben Bierman, ed.
NEW SERIES: We are actively soliciting submissions. Contemporary Writings on Jazz focuses on current approaches to the research and discussion of jazz-related music. This series examines music from a wide and open perspective that is sensitive to critical issues of this moment, including race, gender, technology, intellectual property, and appropriation. The goal of the series is to contribute to the process of broadening the way we talk and think about music as well as how we discuss its place in society. We seek to be a welcoming home for a rich array of voices, viewpoints, perspectives, topics, and approaches, both from within and outside the academy.
