Summary
This book examines the significance of music in the construction of identities and ethnicities, and suggests ways to understand music as social practice. The authors focus on: the role of music in the construction of national and regional identities; the media and 'postmodern identity'; concepts of authenticity; aesthetics; meaning; performance; 'world music'; and the use of music as a focus for discursive evocations of 'place'. The chapters tackle a wide range of subjects including 16th century etiquette, Celtic music and Chopin. The volume will be of interest to social anthropologists, and those working in the fields of cultural studies, politics, gender studies, ethnomusicology, folklore and musicology
