Editorial Reviews

Review

"Among the Jasmine Trees is a hauntingly beautiful example of all that is best in contemporary anthropology and ethnomusicology and their mutual nexus with performance studies and the ideas of embodied knowledge."―Jonathan Zilberg, Jakarta Institute for the Arts, Leonardo Reviews

"Among the Jasmine Trees is a hauntingly beautiful example of all that is best in contemporary anthropology and ethnomusicology and their mutual nexus with performance studies and the ideas of embodied knowledge."―Jonathan Zilberg, Jakarta Institute for the Arts, Leonardo Reviews

"Shannon provides an evocative and highly readable discussion of how music and discourse about music factor in processes of identity-formation in modern Syria."―Anne Elise Thomas, Ethnomusicology

Review

"Both intellectually stimulating and delightfully engaging, the book stands out for its scholarly rigor and rich documentation. Shannon approaches his subject matter with keen musical sensibility and remarkable affinity for the community that he has studied." ―A.J. Racy, author of Making Music in the Arab World

"Throughout the 20th century, societies in the Middle East have labored to produce their own modernities which are often manifest in expressive culture. Shannon's nuanced and expert text should motivate thought about Middle Eastern societies for years to come."―Virginia Danielson, Loeb Music Library, Harvard University
