Product description


`Philip Bohlman's superb study places world music squarely in history - and a lengthy history at that, reaching back to the Age of Discovery and even beyond.' Richard Middleton, University of Newcastle upon Tyne

About the Author

Philip V. Bohlman, Professor of Music and Jewish Studies at the University of Chicago, has taught and published from an exceptionally broad range of topics in today's world musics: folk and ethnic music in the USA; the musics of European minorities and refugees; the Middle East and South Asia; the ideological and political dimensions of music in nationalism and racism. He is the 1997 recipient of the Royal Music Academy's Dent Medal, and Bohlman has written, edited, or co-edited seventeen books.
