Overview

The text considers the effect of cultural influences such as gender and ethnicity on the perception, interpretation, and performance of music. It also looks at how the forces of nationalism, acculturation, and weternization can affect musical traditions. Many of the musical examples are coordinated with materials in the case studies.
