Authors Terry E. Miller and Andrew Shahriari take students around the world to experience the diversity of musical expression. World Music: A Global Journey, now in its third edition, is known for its breadth in surveying the world’s major cultures in a systematic study of world music within a strong pedagogical framework.

As one prepares for any travel, each chapter starts with background preparation, reviewing the historical, cultural, and musical overview of the region. Visits to multiple ‘sites’ within a region provide in-depth studies of varied musical traditions.

Finally, students are invited to consider the cultural connections that give the music its meaning and life.

'This is a strong book for students with limited musical training. I really like the improvements that have come with the 3rd edition.The photos are particularly great.'Gavin Douglas, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

'Students are exposed to new terminology and concepts critical to the fundamental core of classes in their early curriculum. The listening guides are very useful. This book achieves a good balance between ethnomusicology and communicating fundamental music concepts.'Al Johnson, Medgar Evers College, CUNY
