About the Authors
  • This book is not about music or politics. It is about the 'and' that binds them together. How do these fields intersect, and what theories and approaches can help us understand their interactions? How have the relationships between music and politics changed over time and across cultures, and are the familiar tools we use in dealing with them fit for purpose? This book overhauls our understanding of how these fields interact, offering a rigorous reappraisal of key concepts such as power, protest, resistance, subversion, propaganda, and ideology. It explores and evaluates a wide range of perspectives from contemporary political theory, engaging with an array of musical cultures and practices from medieval chant to rap. In addition, it discusses current ways in which the relationships between music and politics are being reconfigured and reconceptualised. Where else can you find Donald Trump, Kendrick Lamar and Beethoven under one cover?

    • This book will appeal to readers interested in the interactions between contemporary music, culture and politics
    • Draws on topical examples from present-day music and politics including Donald Trump, Kendrick Lamar and post-crash musical activism
    • Features numerous text boxes which explain and evaluate key political concepts and ideologies, highlighting their uses and limitations
