Editorial Reviews


"Asking fascinating questions about the use of music in law enforcement—including incarceration, detention, punishment, and torture—Hirsch provides a useful study of the importance of music not only in the legal system but also in society as a whole. Highly Recommended."
—M.Goldsmith, Choice
(M. Goldsmith Choice)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an important book. The thorough research supports humane viewpoints for complex social issues involving music, especially as music relates to legalities which we average citizens tend to know nothing about-but would be wise to discover.

Each chapter reaches thoughtful and sometimes surprising conclusions based on close examination of all facets of the issue. In the chapter on prisons, the conclusion actually finds a common ground for two seemingly opposing views.

It is refreshing to read original thinking presented in clear, well-researched prose.
