The study of popular music has reached an exciting and important moment in its development. Popular Music Studies introduces students to the most significant debates in the field, offering fresh perspectives and suggesting new directions. Genuinely interdisciplinary on scope, the book outlines the history and development of popular music studies while offering and unprecedentedly international perspective on popular music, featuring writers from North and South America, Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Combining insights from media and cultural studies, sociology, music analysis, ethnomusicology, and performance studies, the essays cover textual analysis, place and space, production, consumption, and everyday life.

"A stimulating, kaleidoscopic work of unprecedented geographical and methodological range. The editors' introduction is the finest concise overview of popular music studies I've seen."--Robert Walser, Professor and Chair of Musicology, University of California, Los Angeles

"An up-to-the-minute field report on the current state of popular music studies, this excellent collection has the merit of not just recommending interdisciplinarity but practising it, not just criticising the undue pop/rock emphasis of an earlier stage but offering a model for an overdue increase in pluralism."--Richard Middleton, Professor, Department of Music, University of Newcastle, UK
