Designed as a tribute to world-renowned ethnomusicologist Bruno Nettl,
        this volume explores the ways in which ethnomusicologists are contributing
        to the larger task of investigating music history. The fifteen contributors
        explore topics ranging from meetings with the Suyá Indians of Brazil
        to the German-speaking Jewish community of Israel; from Indian music in
        Felicity, Trinidad, to Ravi Shankar's role as cultural mediator.
      "This book is unique not only for its approach but also for the
        scope of its content. . . . It is definitely a must for libraries of research
        centers and institutions with ethnomusicology programs."
