This is a comprehensive approach to music from the point of view of anthropology. The author maintains that ethnomusicology, by definition, must not divorce the sound-analysis of music from its cultural context of people thinking, acting, and creating.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For the broad perspective it provides of man as music-maker, as also for the lucid resume of past and present appraoches to this subject which it presents, Merriam's new book should, I think, be treated as essential reading both within the social sciences and the humanities." --Man
..".Merriam's book, seen from the viewpoint of anthropology, is deserving of the highest respect."
--Ethnomusicology
