Popular Musics Matter: Social, Political and Cultural Interventions

Series edited by Eoin Devereux, Aileen Dillane and Martin J. Power

The Popular Musics Matter series will publish internationally informed edited collections, monographs and textbooks which engage in the critical study of popular music performances (live and recorded), historical and contemporary popular music practitioners and artists, and participants and audiences for whom such musics embody aesthetic, cultural and particularly socio-political values. The series sees music not only as a manifestation of global popular culture, but also as a form that profoundly shapes and continually seeks to redefine our understandings of how society operates in a given location and era.
