Abstract

This volume examines the relationship between music and power in the Islamic world. Edited by the British ethnomusicologist Laudan Nooshin, the publication brings together a diverse collection of scholars (from both sides of the Atlantic) who consider the power of music from a number of different perspectives in a range of distinctive contexts. While the authors, generally speaking, eschew an established discourse in the region that concerns the affective attributes of musical power, they offer instead a richly textured reading of the subject where musical production discloses a complex network of social relations and musical consumption reveals an intricate array of social positions.
