Close Sliding Bar Area. Hamm thus provides background on vaudeville, minstrel shows, ragtime, the ballad, and, of course, Tin Pan Alley.

In the process, he takes on previous Berlin biographers in academic fisticuffs. Hamm seems the better researcher, but perhaps obsessively so.

His first piece, "Marie from Sunny Italy", was written in , and his first great success, "Alexander's Ragtime Band" , attracted more public and media attention than any other song of its decade. Beginning with Berlin's immigrant roots - he came to New York in from Russia - Hamm shows how the young Berlin quickly revealed the talent for music and lyrics that was to mark his entire career.
These pieces, with their Jewish, Italian, German, Irish, and black protagonists singing in appropriate dialects, reflected the urban mix of New York's melting pot. Berlin drew on various musical styles, especially ragtime, for such songs as "Alexander's Ragtime Band", and Hamm devotes an entire chapter to the song and its success. The book also details Berlin's early efforts to write for the Broadway musical stage, culminating in with his first musical comedy, Watch Your Step, featuring the popular dance team, Vernon and Irene Castle.
