The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music
The United States and Canada4219
This volume makes available the full range of the American/Canadian musical experience, covering-for the first time in print-all major regions, ethnic groups, and traditional and popular contexts. From musical comedy to world beat, from the songs of the Arctic to rap and house music, from Hispanic Texas to the Chinese communities of Vancouver, the coverage captures the rich diversity and continuities of the vibrant music we hear around us. Special attention is paid to recent immigrant groups, to Native American traditions, and to such socio-musical topics as class, race, gender, religion, government policy, media, and technology.

"This unique and thoroughly researched resource provides a dynamic and in depth perspective on world music... It strikes a balance between wonderful illustrations and comprehensive, scholarly entries. Each regional volume includes a CD sampler of that region's music. This source will have wide appeal to both the novice and expert." -- Dartmouth Medal "A valuable tool..." -- American Reference Books Annual "An impressive scholarly accomplishment full of toughtful articles on a rich diversity of topics with bibliographies that are a treasure themselves." -- Against the Grain "This is a monumental work of impressive scope that in less competent hands could have fallen flat on its bibliographic face...This volume (and the series) would see much use in most public libraries and in academic libraries with even modest music and popular culture courses." -- Library Journal
