Can musicians really make the world more sustainable? Anthropologist Mark Pedelty joined an eco-oriented band, the Hypoxic Punks, to find out. In his timely and exciting book, Ecomusicology, Pedelty explores the political ecology of rock, from local bands to global superstars. He examines the climate change controversies of U2's 360 Degrees stadium tour-deemed excessive by some-and the struggles of local folk singers who perform songs about the environment. In the process, he raises serious questions about the environmental effects, and meanings of music.
