Reflecting the growing interest in popular music from the developing world, this unique book is the first to examine all major non-Western music styles, from increasing familiar genres like reggae and salsa, to the lesser-known regional styles of Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, non-Western Europe (Greece, Yugoslavia, Portugal), Asia, and the Near East.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`It would be difficult to imagine a more ambitious and timely piece of ethnomusicological scholarship than Manuel's engaging and sympathetic overview ... The text is thoroughly documented with reliable, contemporary references; the glossary is a valuable reference tool in itself.' Choice
'Peter Manuel's Popular Music of the Non-Western World is perhaps the first comprehensive "textbook" on worldwide popular music ... a much needed addition to the sparse but growing literature in this area of study.' Stephen H. Martin, Portland State University, Notes, June 1993
