Editorial Reviews


“...a scientific, well-researched study…Peter Keppy has written a particularly interesting book about the role of popular culture in two countries. The influence of western and contemporary pop culture - as is evident from this study - played a much greater role in building local national consciousness  than was previously assumed. An emancipating, identity-giving and therefore also political role. It unmistakably shows what the power of music consists of and how it can contribute to broad changes with great significance.”

-- Ben Taffijn, Draai om je oren Published On: 2019-05-11

“As his absorbing book shows us, the Jazz Age, as it manifested in Southeast Asia, enabled social critique and emancipation to feature in songs and shows.Tales Of Southeast Asia's Jazz Age is an entertaining walk-through and analysis of an important cultural period, when innovation and experimentation were the order of the day.”
, The Bangkok Post
