About the Author

Sarah Mahler Kraaz is William Harley Barber Distinguished Professor, Professor of Music, and College Organist at Ripon College in Wisconsin, where she teaches piano and organ as well as courses in music history, women in music, music and war, and music and art. Dr. Kraaz has researched and performed on historic organs in Italy, Germany, and Scotland. She is active as a composer of works for organ solo and choir, and she writes reviews and articles for The Diapason, an international journal devoted to the harpsichord, organ, and church music.


Music and War in the United States provides the first historical overview of music's place in US conflicts. Its authors interrogate how musicians helped and hindered their military and the lasting impact of war upon the nation's music. A compelling and highly informative study, it will also be an invaluable teaching resource for historians of US music and culture.
