Summary
Music-writer and composer John Shaw writes the dual biography of Berlin's God bless America and Guthrie's This land is your land, at the same time examining our patriotic musical heritage, from Yankee Doodle and The star-spangled banner to Martin Luther King's quotation of My country 'tis of thee on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Delving into the deeper history of war songs, minstrelsy, ragtime, country music, folk music, and African American spirituals, Shaw unearths a rich vein of half-forgotten patriotic and musical traditions
Summary
A narrative history of the writing of This Land Is Your Land and God Bless America discusses the conflicts and common ground between the two classic anthems, revealing how Woody Guthrie composed one as a reflection of Great Depression realities as a rebuttal to Irving Berlin's equally complex song, written partly in response to the rise of Hitler
