Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Notable editors Shepherd (music & sociology, Carleton Univ., Ottawa) and Horn (ret. director, Inst. of Popular Music, Univ. of Liverpool) collaborated on this latest volume of a well-respected popular music encyclopedia, as they have for many others in the set. The first volume in the series covers aspects of media, industry, and society; the second focuses on performance and production; and subsequent volumes concentrate on popular music genres in specific geographic regions. This ninth volume, covering the Caribbean and Latin America, features over 200 entries by popular music scholars on a wide range of genres. Entries include bibliographies, discographies, and discographical references as well as additional information on visual recordings, interviews, filmography, websites, and/or sheet music. The volume begins with maps, followed by an alphabetical listing of entries on genres, and ends with an extensive index. Genres relevant to more than one geographic area are listed separately by location. The articles provide considerable detail, and the bibliographies are extensive where appropriate. VERDICT Libraries that own the Garland Encyclopedia of World Music do not necessarily need this set; however, it does provide comprehensive articles and references on Caribbean and Latin American popular music genres that will be useful to music researchers in this field." —Elizabeth Berndt-Morris, Central Michigan Univ. Lib., Mount Pleasant, Library Jourbanal
