Sharpe and Stierman (Western Illinois U., Macomb) have included biographical information and critical essays on over 100 American conductors who are active in the 21st century. The authors use articles, interviews, reviews and even personal observations to complete each entry, which can be used by librarians, music students and teachers. Throughout this book, the authors stress the need for keeping classical music, and the work of these conductors, alive and thriving in the United States.
