What Makes Music European: Looking Beyond Sound – book recommendation (ignoring its author’s warning)

Sorce Keller, Marcello. What Makes Music European: Looking Beyond Sound.
Europea: Ethnomusicologies and Modernities, 12. Lanham: Scarecrow Press,
2012. xxv, 303 pp., bibliography, index. ISBN 978-0-8108-7671-2.

Great reading for anyone interested in fresh cultural perspectives; backed up by a wealth of sources and covering a mind boggling range of topics!

In short: serious scholarship yet fun to read. So don’t let its author deter you:
