Music and Society is a series of books, by specialists designed to present music in a broad context of socio-political, intellectual and religious life. In place of the technical and stylistic discussion that make up most histories of music, the reader will find music considered rather as a series of responses to social forces. The idea is not to explain simply what happened, but why it happened, and why it happened when and where it did.
