Ethnomusicology: An Introduction: Volume 1 (New Grove Handbooks in Music) by H. Myers



This is intended as a general introduction to the subject. Part One includes basic definitions, touching upon anthropology and comparative studies. Part Two deals with theory and method. Part Three deals with gender, the music industry and ethical concerns. A collection of reference aids rounds off the volume. Today, when Eurocentricity is being challenged throughout the world, these glimpses into a discipline that focuses on ethnic diversity will be of immense interest.
