Ian Whitcomb's book "After The Ball" talks about this very process, the 
transitions from ragtime to earliest jazz to bigger bands of the 20s to 
early swing to big band swing to the singers to RnR.  No, he doesn't really 
mention Bop.

Essentially, his treatise is that there are many factors in every change, 
but it comes down to "if the kids like it, the adults hate it.  If the 
adults start to like it,the kids will find something else."

Highly simplified, of course, and certainly not the single authoritative 
tome, but it's a good read and has lots of good information.
