4.0 out of 5 stars a chronological history of ragtime
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 1, 2018
I borrowed this as a library book, and didn't get a chance to play through all the tunes enough to judge the music, but they cover the history of ragtime well, including the beginning and peak of the ragtime era (1980s through 1918), the period after the height of the era (through 1945), and a handful of 1979 compositions (the book's year of publication) after the ragtime revival inspired by _The Sting_ (1973).

There are also several pages of introduction that I barely skimmed, which looked like historical notes about ragtime.

The "4" is a provisional rating until I get a chance to examine the book more thoroughly. I'll revise this review after I check the book out again. (I'll take "helpful" votes as requests for an expanded review.)
