Required reading for a multicultural perspectives in music therapy graduate seminar.This is a short book but it's rough to get through. An example of the typical language:"Every alteration of music's role and context inevitably implies a structural and semantic displacement of its manifestations." It's a translation from French - familiarity with that or Latin will help or get a dictionary. It's only 85 pages butif you can get past all that it makes interesting fodder for discussion.
