    Very Short Introductions. Oxford's Very Short Introductions series offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects -- from Islam to Sociology, Politics to Classics, and Literary Theory to History. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume provides trenchant and provocative - yet always balanced - discussions of the central issues in a given topic.   Wald positions blues music as the catalyst for more modern American musical forms, including jazz, rock, R&B and rap. His "very short introduction" begins with the contributions of W.C. Handy, moves through the artistry of female singers like Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith, and looks at the gritty songs of male innovators like Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, B.B. King /5.
