Editorial Reviews


This unique and thoroughly researched resource provides a dynamic and in depth perspective on world music... It strikes a balance between wonderful illustrations and comprehensive, scholarly entries. Each regional volume includes a CD sampler of that region's music. This source will have wide appeal to both the novice and expert. -- Dartmouth Medal Committee
The third volume in this excellent series...This important accessible to interested adult readers... -- MultiCultural Review
An invaluable resource. . . . Recommended for academic and large public libraries. -- Choice
Learning about world music is a pleasure with this impressive series of books. -- Cover Magazine
The third volume in a fantastic series which should be a cornerstone of any serious world music library... A treasure trove keeping in quality with the past two series volumes. -- Reviewers Bookwatch
An excellent multidisciplinary survey of music and dance of the region. -- The Cellar Book Shop
These folks know what they are doing... Garland's goal of becoming a source 'that can function as every scholar's first place to search' hits its mark. When you visit your library, look for the Garland Encyclopedia of World Music. If they don't have it, ask them to get it. Finally, let me say that these volumes are a delight and a guaranteed pleasure to explore. I can't remember a better buy. Put it on your Christmas list. -- Victory Music Review
Extremely impressive... It is the first time that material from major scholars of Oceania has been gathered together in one volume... It is an extraodrinary effort that will be applauded by contemporary and future scholars, and others interested in the region... People with general interest in the region also will find much to engage them... [I] applaud the editors for work that will be invaluble to the field for many decades to come. -- Ethnomusicology Online
