Listen to David Hesmondhalgh discuss the arguments at the core of 'Why Music Matters' with Laurie Taylor on BBC Radio 4's Thinking Allowed here. In what ways might music enrich the lives of people and of societies? What prevents it from doing so? Why Music Matters explores the role of music in our lives, and investigates the social and political significance of music in modern societies. * First book of its kind to explore music through a variety of theories and approaches and unite these theories using one authoritative voice * Combines a broad yet theoretically sophisticated approach to music and society with real clarity and accessibility * A historically and sociologically informed understanding of music in relation to questions of social power and inequality * By drawing on both popular and academic talk about a range of musical forms and practices, readers will engage with a wide musical terrain and a wealth of case studies
