Music Sociology : Examining the Role of Music in Social Life, Hardback Book

Music Sociology : Examining the Role of Music in Social Life Hardback

Edited by Meghan D. Probstfield


Music Sociology explores 16 different genres to demonstrate that music everywhere reflects social values, organisational processes, meanings and individual identity.

Presenting original ethnographic research, the contributors use descriptions of subcultures to explain the concepts of music sociology, including the rituals that link people to music, the past and each other.

Music Sociology introduces the sociology of music to those who may not be familiar with it and provides a basic historical perspective on popular music in America and beyond.
