Author of Kind of Blue: The Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece
America's most famous Christmas song — under close and expert scrutiny — reveals stories of past times and paradox. Jewish acculturation, Tin Pan Alley, Hollywood's Golden Age, and World War II all figure in Rosen's engagingly investigated, assiduously researched world-in-a-song effort.
The Christian Science Monitor
Phenomenal cultural history...Focused and thoroughly engaging...White Christmas glides through this song's snow-capped history with verve, intelligence, and sleigh-bell jingling aplomb.
The Seattle Times
A surprising and endearing look inside the song and its composer.
Los Angeles Times
A detailed account of the song, a deft biographical sketch of Berlin, and a whirlwind tour of twentieth-century American popular culture...A gold mine of information and insight.
