Required books are available at the campus bookstore and on reserve at the library. I am also happy to loan my duplicate copy if you email me or visit me in office hours. Additional readings will be accessible through Course Reserves (CR).

You might consider purchasing the texts used. The readings for the first two weeks, including the first assigned reading from National Rhythms, African Roots will be available through course reserves to allow time for your books to arrive. 

The total cost for this course, including both required texts (used) and registration with Reclaim Hosting (with discount code), is about 50-60 USD. Please let me know if you have any concerns about cost.
