4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful introduction to the topic, 15 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Music and Politics (PCPC - Polity Contemporary Political Communication Series) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book seems to be aimed at students of music or politics and offers a broad overview of the ways in which the two have interacted. Examples used are diverse and discussed in some detail, and the book covers a range of important themes such as censorship, political protest and the idea of music as politics - suggesting that it can be an intrinsic part of political expression. Street suggests that the very act of creating music can be seen as an important political gesture and uses this as a guiding theme through the volume. This is an academic volume aimed at a student audience, so is not likely to appeal to anyone with only a casual interest in the topic. Similarly, as a broad introduction, it is unlikely to satisfy anyone with a strong interest in one particular example of music and politics interacting, as its aim is rather more general.
