..".represents the ongoing commitment of a massive community to telling the stories of American music with clarity, precision, and depth and demonstrates the continuing strength of our field." --American Music Review


"[W]e were deeply impressed both by the quality and ambition of the eight-volume, 5.4 million-word encyclopedia and by the 'gargantuan' task...with which the reviewers had been charged...Few reviewers could resist praising AmeriGrove II's scope or remarking upon its size...AmeriGrove II (and I) is a capacious, engaging, impossible text that rewards many sorts of reading--whether by human or machine, online or paper."--Journal of the Society for American Music
