Popular music plays a prominent role in the cultural transformations that are constantly reshaping our world.
More and more, music is at the center of contemporary debates about globalization, electronic commerce, space
and locality, style and identity, subculture and community, and other key issues within cultural and media
studies. Music [Meanings] offers book-length studies examining the impact of popular music on individuals,
cultures and societies. The series addresses popular music as a form of communication and culture from an
interdisciplinary perspective, and targets readers from across the humanities and social sciences.
