Publisher description
"Music and Marx represents the first time a distinctly diverse set of Marxist-directed approaches to the study of music can be found in a single volume. Widely varied in their topics, each chapter illuminates from its own vantage point how a Marxist treatment of culture informs - and is informed by - an assessment of musical production and reception.
With ten all new essays by accomplished musicologists, ethnomusicologists, and music theorists, and an erudite introduction by editor Regula Burckhardt Qureshi, the book broaches such subjects as song structure and modernity, the commodification of a hip-hop aesthetic, the revolutionary music of Central America, public concerts in seventeenth- and eigthteenth-century London, Soviet-sponsored music, world music, and the state of music scholarship today."--BOOK JACKET.
