Description - Excursions in World Music by Timothy Rommen
- Lead author Bruno Nettl. The grand-daddy of Ethnomusicology compiled the first edition, and his name and contributions to the field have brought the book forward several editions.
- Chapters are written by established/known ethnomusicologists specializing in the particular region, in the perhaps the most balanced attempt to get expert authors together.
- Does not aim to teach students how to do field work (like Titon), per se, or other ethnomusicological study, and does not aim to teach music - rather, how to think about music in world perspective and the major themes and issues that emerge when we take the musics of the world seriously.
- Draws a big picture and explains why the musics of the world matter.....the economics, politics, and social dynamics of these sounds.
