Carrying the reputation and authority of the market leader for this course-Titon's WORLDS OF MUSIC, 3RD--this SHORTER EDITION introduces world music at a more rudimentary level and in a smaller package. Beginning with a newly written introductory chapter, it proceeds to case studies of music of different cultures in eight different parts of the world, and concludes with a fieldwork project. The author treats music both on its own terms and as a human activity in diverse historical, social, and cultural contexts. The book encourages active student involvement by showing how a beginner may document, play, and even build the instruments used in the music of another culture.
