What People are Saying About This

David Novak

“Abe’s innovative book foregrounds important debates in ethnomusicology, East Asian Studies, and sound studies, with energizing new research on modern folk practices and popular music, neoliberal cities, and the global political ‘resonances’ of protest cultures.”

From the Publisher

"Abe's innovative book foregrounds important debates in ethnomusicology, East Asian Studies, and sound studies, with energizing new research on modern folk practices and popular music, neoliberal cities, and the global political 'resonances' of protest cultures."—David Novak, author of Japanoise: Music at the Edge of Circulation

"This book demonstrates some of the best that ethnomusicology has to offer. Among its many critical insights in history, culture, and society, as well as music and other sonic systems, Abe's central concept of resonance stands to be a major contribution to the discipline."—Christine Yano, author of Tears of Longing: Nostalgia and the Nation in Japanese Popular Song
