Analyzing Popular Music by Professor Allan F. Moore
Book DescriptionHow do we know music? We perform it, we compose it, we sing it in the shower, we cook, sleep and dance to it. Eventually we think and write about it. This book represents the culmination of such shared processes. Each of these essays, written by leading writers on popular music, is analytical in some sense, but none of them treats analysis as an end in itself. The books presents a wide range of genres (rock, dance, TV soundtracks, country, pop, soul, easy listening, Turkish Arabesk) and deals with issues as broad as methodology, modernism, postmodernism, Marxism and communication. It aims to encourage listeners to think more seriously about the 'social' consequences of the music they spend time with and is the first collection of such essays to incorporate contextualisation in this way.

From Soul to Hip Hop, Hardback (November 2014)
The essays contained in this volume address some of the most visible, durable and influential of African American musical styles as they developed from the mid-1960s into the 21st-century. Soul, funk, pop, R&B and hip hop practices are explored both singly and in their many convergences.
Legacies of Ewan MacColl, Hardback (October 2014)
This book contributes significantly to the debate surrounding the importance of Ewan MacColl to the English folk revival. MacColl gave two extended interviews with co-editor Giovanni Vacca in 1987 and 1988 and these provide the impetus for a re-examination of his methods, his politics and his aesthetic aims.
