This shorter version of the best-selling 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 of several cultures from around the world. The authors, all ethnomusicologists working in their fields of expertise, 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. General editor, Jeff Todd Titon, has written the text's opening chapter that introduces students to ethnomusicology and relates each chapter's music heard on the accompanying CDs to the fundamentals of music in a worldwide context. The text concludes with a chapter that invites students to participate by undertaking a fieldwork research project that increases a student's understanding of music in daily life. The supplementary three-CD set works hand in hand with the authors' prose, providing students with access to a wide range of music-cultures and include authentic recordings from the authors' fieldwork. Leading off is the long-standing jewel in the WORLDS OF MUSIC crown -- James Koetting's magnificent recording of postal workers canceling stamps at the University of Ghana post office. A Western-sounding hymn tune performed against African rhythms, this piece, more that any other, lets the student hear contrasting music-cultures.

Jack Eller's book brings together widest range of material on violence as a modern and international cultural problem. It combines comprehensive theoretical discussion from multiple disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, psychology, and biology, with rich empirical description and analysis in a global approach. Violence, if not more prevalent, is attracting more attention in academic arenas as well as the public arena. It has become a central feature of the 21st century. Because understanding violence requires comparisons to nonviolence, Eller examines and contrasts a myriad of violent and nonviolent societies--Publisher's description.

The Oxford Handbook of Children's Musical Cultures is a compendium of perspectives on children and their musical engagements as singers, dancers, players, and avid listeners. Over the course of 35 chapters, contributors from around the world provide an interdisciplinary enquiry into the musical lives of children in a variety of cultures, and their role as both preservers and innovators of music. Drawing on a wide array of fields from ethnomusicology and folklore to education and developmental psychology, the chapters presented in this handbook provide windows into the musical enculturation, education, and training of children, and the ways in which they learn, express, invent, and preserve music. Offering an understanding of the nature, structures, and styles of music preferred and used by children from toddlerhood through childhood and into adolescence, The Oxford Handbook of Children's Musical Cultures is an important step forward in the study of children and music.

The two central goals of Sound Ways are inspired by the National Standards for Arts Education: to strengthen understanding of the relationships between music and other curricular disciplines and to foster an understanding of music in the context of history and of culture. The text is divided into three sections illustrating the interaction between music and the curriculum: Music and the Study of Time; Music and the Study of Place; and Music and the Study of Expression. Within each section, the authors offer concrete examples of how music may be incorporated into a curricular area and the ways in which this incorporation provides students a broader understanding of both subjects. In the Study of Time section, for example, study plans for both the Renaissance and the Civil War are offered. These plans include curricula, music examples, strategies, and lesson plans. For the in-service teacher, whether a specialist or generalist, the book offers guidelines and ideas for collaboration between colleagues and provides jargon-free access to the realm of music education. Engaging and well-written vignettes collected from the field give teachers practical solutions to real-world situations. For the professor of music education, the book is presented in a logical manner that facilitates easy classroom use. Although based on the latest developments in the understanding of education, and of music education in particular, Sound Ways is highly practical and eminently readable an ideal change-of-pace for both student and professor from dry theory texts. Strong scholarship, practical advice, readability, multicultural and contemporary sensibilities, and an approach that stresses theimportance of teachers from different academic backgrounds working together to create a truly interdisciplinary curriculum all these elements make Sound Ways of Knowing an ideal resource for in-service elementary and secondary school teachers and a fresh, new textbook alternative for professors and students in the fields of music education and curriculum. Janet R. Barrett is Associate Professor of Music at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. Claire W. McCoy is Associate Professor in the School of Music at the University of Minnesota. Kari K. Veblen is a Research Associate at the University of Limerick in Ireland.

In this book, a group of educators examine the reputed merits of the interdisciplinary curriculum movement that has gained wisespread popularity in recent years. They explore the complex texture of what actually happens in the classroom when theory meets reality. Some topics addressed are: how teachers with diverse backgrounds come together to plan curricula; what happens to school culture when an interdisciplinary effort is spearheaded by administrators; and what transpires when new curricula are put into practice either at the local school level or across major urban districts.
