African American Music in Global Perspective
Series Editor: Portia K. Maultsby
This series addresses those subject areas that are: (1) underrepresented in the scholarly literature, and (2) characterized primarily by description rather than deep cultural analysis. In addition to the publication of reprints of primary and secondary sources that serve as definitive markers in the history of the study of African American music in general, the series also encourages and promotes increased attention to the following areas of inquiry: biographies, autobiographies, globalization, religious music, popular music, women in music, music criticism, musical aesthetics, and regional studies. Books in the series will foreground the cultural perspectives of the primary creators and performers of the music, highlighting the voices of African Americans themselves. The series editors welcome projects not only from ethnomusicologists, but from such related fields as cultural history, sociology, anthropology, and African American studies.
