'Among the year's most stimulating reading material' The Observer
'This is an important book, crowded … with new ideas and arguments that challenge many of our assumptions.' The Musical Times
' … most rewarding … As a collection of humanistic scholarship that amplifies the best sociological tradition … it is highly recommended.' Contemporary Sociology
The writers here question a prevailing ideology that insists there is a division between music and society and examine the ways in which the two do in fact interact and mediate one another within and across socio-cultural boundaries.See all Product Description
