"The Concise Garland Encyclopedia of World Music bears witness to a comprehensive rethinking of the history and historiography of world music...the publication of the Concise Garland Encyclopedia of World Music marks the beginning of a new age of ethnomusicology and world music in the twenty-first century." -- From the foreword by Philip V. Bohlman, President of the Society of Ethnomusicology, 2005-2007, as well as author and editor of numerous books on world music

The Concise Garland Encyclopedia of World Music is an adaptation of the Dartmouth Medal winning Garland Encyclopedia of World Music, with contributions by the leading scholars in ethnomusicology marking the first half-century of the discipline's modern history. The new Concise edition will appeal to a more general audience, including libraries, high-school classrooms or the personal collections of world music enthusiasts. Comprised of two volumes, the Concise Garland adopts the geographic approach of the original ten-volume set. Each section begins with an introduction that covers the region's broad culture and music. Articles describe the unifying aspects of a region's music, especially its instruments, genres, or theories, and are followed by several essays devoted to a region's individual music cultures. Two audio CDs offer musical examples from regions around the world.

Whether you are new to the study of world music, an avid concert-goer, a musician, or already well-versed in ethnomusicology, you will want to consult the Concise Garland Encyclopedia of World Music for quick, reliable and enjoyable reference.

Review:

'While remaining true to the global inclusiveness of the original and the scholarly integrity of the original text, it has reduced the page count by 95 percent and retailored the language and presentation for a non-specialist audience. For libraries that passed on the original, this one is essential - the time has come.  Libraries that already have the original should consider this one, too; it will fill a definite niche.' - CHOICE
