9781847874351: Popular Music: Topics, Trends & Trajectories

This is the first textbook on Pop Music to be written after the start of the iPod era.

The book is organized in accessible sections which cover the main themes of research and teaching. It examines the key approaches to understanding popular music, the main settings of exchange and consumption, the role of technology in the production of popular music, the main genres of popular music, and the key debates of the present day.

Barbazon writes with verve and penetration. Her approach starts with how most people actually consume music today and transfers this onto the plain of study.

The organization of the material enables teachers and students to shuffle from one topic to the next. Yet the book provides an unparalleled network to the core library of concepts and issues in the field. As such, it is the perfect study guide for undergraduates located in this exciting and expanding field.

Review:

An incredibly wide-ranging critical account of popular music. The book is an essential resource for all staff and students in the field
Prof John Storey
Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies, University of Sunderland

One of the most thoughtful, inspirational and engaging popular music texts of recent years. It deserves to be well-thumbed by popular music students, academics and researchers alike. Insightful at every corner, the text covers a kaleidoscopic range of subjects - from country music to copyright, Madchester to Myspace - and delivers a wonderfully clear, authoritative and lively invitation to think and write about music. As pedagogically enriching as it is analytically sophisticated, the text not only describes current digital music cultures, but also suggests fruitful movements beyond current orthodoxies of popular music studies. A serious intervention that just so happens to be a clear and accessible textbook
Nick Prior
Senior Lecturer, Sociology, University of Edinburgh
