Music and Marx considers Marx's relevance to current issues in musical
scholarship from perspectives that range across disciplinary and
political vantage points. Well-known contributors analyze the numerous
ways in which Marxist thought enters into music discourse. Exploring
everything from Marxism in hip-hop to feudal properties of Hindustani
music to revolutionary music of Central America, the essays in this book
find surprising, paradigm-shifting revelations. This book will
revolutionize the way music production and consumption is viewed.
