"Gives the reader both an excellent overview of current thinking in the discipline and many separate insights into specific areas of this aspect of music...There's nothing comparable--or, at least, nothing comparably broad--in terms of deepening our understanding of the nexus between musicology and cultural history. Particularly nothing that seeks to sum up the current state of thinking across so wide a range of historical and geographical areas. Well worth investigating." --Classical.net
