Music and Empire in Britain and India : Identity, Internationalism, and Cross-Cultural Communication Hardback
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Cultural and Intellectual History series
Music has been neglected by imperial historians, but this book shows that music is an essential aspect of identity formation and cross-cultural exchange.
It explores the ways in which rational, moral, and aesthetic motives underlying the institutionalization of "classical" music converged and diverged in Britain and India from 1880-1940.
