This work offers a comprehensive survey of the status and history of the ragtime genre, as well as Joplin scholarship to date. After a detailed chronology and listings of selected ragtime editions, the annotated bibliography examines scholarship on Joplin and on ragtime in general. Collections of sheet music and other memorabilia are cited, with further sections devoted solely to "Maple Leaf Rag" and the opera Treemonisha.

Today, 100 years after the publication of Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag", the Joplin style endures as classic rag. This volume serves as an essential reference to the scholarship on Joplin, ragtime music and all its composers and performers, groups, periodicals, clubs, societies, and festivals.
