The Cultural Study of Music: A Critical Introduction
Martin Clayton, Trevor Herbert, Richard Middleton, Professor of Music Richard Middleton
Psychology Press, 2003 - Music - 368 pages
The Cultural Study of Music is an anthology of new writings that serves as a basic textbook on music and culture. Increasingly, music is being studied as it relates to specific cultures--not only by ethnomusicologists, but by traditional musicologists as well. Drawing on writers from music, anthropology, sociology, and the related fields, the book both defines the field--i.e., "What is the relation between music and culture?"--and then presents case studies of particular issues in world musics.
