New edition of a text that studies music as a way of life for people around the world. Rather than surveying all music, musicologists from leading universities discuss a small number of representative human groups. Through geographical and historical context, biography and autobiography, discussion of instruments, transcriptions, and song lyrics), they approach diverse kinds of music in order to help the listener understand and enjoy a variety of forms. The editor, Jeff Todd Titon (American studies, U. of Minnesota) is also one of the contributors.
