SITES OF POPULAR MUSIC HERITAGE
Edited by Sara Cohen, Robert Knifton, Marion Leonard and Les Roberts (New York: Routledge, 2014)
"As the first music-related publication examining this topic, Sites of Popular Music Heritage is a welcome addition and a unique contribution to the ongoing debate of popular music heritage in contemporary (ethno)musicological scholarship, and a considerable editorial achievement of selecting the thematically appropriate papers through the symposium from which this book stems." Ethnomusicology Forum 24 (3), 2015.
"Sites of Popular Music Heritage purveys a many-sided profile of musical heritage work and its operational environment. As is the case with all edited volumes, some of the chapters are more analytical and some more descriptive, but I found even the most casual ones in the collection entertaining… the virtues of the collection reside in exhibiting the multiplicity of dimensions of heritage work." Journal of World Popular Music 4 (1), 2017.
