Jack Sullivan is professor of English and chair of American Studies at Rider University. He is the editor of The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural and Words on Music: From Addison to Barzun and the author of Elegant Nightmares: The English Ghost Story from Le Fanu to Blackwood.

"Congenial, lively, and informative, Jack Sullivan's New World Symphonies explores how serious European composers, from Dvorak and Delius to Britton and Tippet, have drawn inspiration from America's indigenous musical culture."  Morris Dickstein, City University of New York

"An engaging look at the influence of American literature, spirituals, jazz, and other forms in works by Britten, Coleridge-Taylor, Debussy, Delius, Hindemith, Ravel, Stravinsky, Varese, Weill, and numerous other British and Continental composers." Nina C. Ayoub, Chronicle of Higher Education
