'... a brave first attempt to bring together information and arguments relevant to an understanding of how patriotism and nationalism intersect with music education... a "must read" resource.' Professor John Sloboda, International Journal of Education and the Arts '... useful for the teacher who wants to explore global issues in the classroom... a rich source of information about aspects of music education around the world... There is much for music teachers to think about here - recommended.' David Ashworth, Music Teacher Magazine (UK) 'The book is a rich resource, its extensive sources offering many excellent starting-points for research, particularly for music educators who have not previously considered this aspect of how they train teachers, as well as scholars engaged in researching comparative and political educational issues.' Veronica Jamset, Fontes Artis Musicae '... appealing to a wide range of readers, interweaving broader historical overviews, and engaged, personal accounts... Patriotism and Nationalism in Music Education provides a stimulating series of case studies that trace music education's ethical, unethical and unexpected consequences.' Professor Jonathan Stock, British Journal of Music Education 'This timely book offers an insightful array of international perspectives on a subject that badly calls out for scrutiny. It is particularly relevant for music educators.' Canadian Association of Music Libraries
