Sound, Society and the Geography of Popular Music
Ola Johansson, Thomas L. Bell
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2009 - Music - 305 pages
"Popular music is a cultural form much rooted in space and place. This book interprets the meaning of music from a spatial perspective and, in doing so it furthers our understanding of broader social relations and trends, including identity, attachment to place, cultural economies, social activism and politics. The book's editors have brought together a team of scholars to discuss the latest innovative thinking on music and its geographies, illustrated with a fascinating range of case studies from the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, Australia and Great Britain."--Book cover.
