Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0754626792, Hardcover)As a sociologist Simon Frith takes the starting point that music is the result of the play of social forces, whether as an idea, an experience or an activity. The essays in this important collection address these forces, recognising that music is an effect of a continuous process of negotiation, dispute, and agreement between the individual actors who make up a music world. The collection includes nineteen essays, some of which have had a major impact on the field, along with an autobiographical introduction.
