This shorter version of the bestselling WORLDS OF MUSIC provides much of the authoritative coverage of the comprehensive version in a format that's accessible to students without any background or training in music. Using a case-study approach, the text presents in-depth explorations of music from several cultures around the world. The authors, all working ethnomusicologists, base their discussions of music-cultures on their own fieldwork and give students a true sense of both the music and culture that created it. Editor Jeff Todd Titon’s opening chapter introduces students to ethnomusicology and relates each chapter's music to the fundamentals of music in a worldwide context, while the final chapter invites students to undertake a fieldwork research project that increases their understanding of music in daily life. Authentic recordings from the authors' fieldwork are keyed to the text and available online, giving students access to a wide range of music-cultures.
