9780393925678: Soundscapes: Exploring Music in a Changing World, 2nd Edition

The innovative music textbook, available here as a book without audio CDs.

Soundscapes breaks new ground by organizing the study of world music according to its cultural significance, rather than by geography alone. The Second Edition provides even better coverage of the cultures surrounding the music and focuses more closely on honing students’ listening skills. The Second Edition also features a striking new design, new chapter organization, and expanded listening guides.

This edition contains only the Soundscapes textbook. The textbook with the CDs (ISBN 978-0-393-16713-9), and the CDs alone (ISBN 978-0-393-10684-8) are each available separately.
