Detailed discussion of music and antisemitic traditions. 6 July 2014
By CBL - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For anyone interested in modern musicology at a fairly scholarly, but still intelligible level, this multidisciplinary book on the topic of antisemitic tropes which interact with music, in some cases, with music of the highest individual worth, is well worth reading.
