From singer to actor, from mass media personality to humanitarian and culture trendsetter, the many contributions of Frank Sinatra are here examined and brought to life. The research presented in these pages should appeal to scholars of popular music and American popular culture, as well as to Frank Sinatra fans and to those with a general interest in popular music.
