Im Mittelpunkt des Buches stehen die Kriegserfahrungen von Minderheiten-Soldaten im Ersten Weltkrieg. Ethnische, nationale und andere Minderheiten wurden vielfach pauschal als unzuverlässige und illoyale Staatsbürger kategorisiert. In der Folge waren sie zahlreichen Diskriminierungen ausgesetzt. Die Frage nach diesen Stereotypen und ihren Auswirkungen auf die Lebensbedingungen der Soldatensteht im Zentrum der Beiträge. Darüber hinaus beleuchten die Autorinnen und Autoren die Frage, welche Bedeutung nationalen Identitäten im Spannungsfeld zwischen Nation und Region zukam. Welchen Stellenwert hatten "Nation" und "nationales Bewusstsein" für die Angehörigen von Minderheiten, als sie 1914 in den Krieg zogen? Schließlich setzt sich der Band auch mit der erinnerungskulturellen Dimension nach 1918 auseinander. Geschichtspolitische Vereinnahmung und Umdeutung begannen schon während des Krieges und setzen sich nach seinem Ende fort. Ohne die Aufarbeitung dieser Instrumentalisierung und Politisierung ist die Geschichte der Minderheiten-Soldaten im Ersten Weltkrieg nicht zu verstehen.

The ICTM Study Group Music and Minorities was founded officially in 1997 and is thus one of the youngest Study Groups within the ICTM. The volume Manifold Identities: Studies on Music and Minorities is a collection of the papers of the second Study Group meeting, which was held in Lublin/Poland, August 25-31, 2002. Chapters are included on music from Badakhshan, the Roma, the Arvanites of Greece, Albania, Poland, Carpathia, the Belorussians of Poland, Slovakia, France, Germany, Turkey, Croatia, the Sorbians, the Masai, the Andes, Venezuela, the Jews of Poland, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Sicily, Azerbaijan, and elsewhere. The volume is also replete with articles of a theoretical orientation, with a special focus on an ethnomusicological theorisation of issues revolving around minority identities and its relation to music-making and perceiving.

Applied studies scholarship has triggered a not-so-quiet revolution in the discipline of ethnomusicology. The current generation of applied ethnomusicologists has moved toward participatory action research, involving themselves in musical communities and working directly on their behalf. The essays in The Oxford Handbook of Applied Ethnomusicology, edited by Svanibor Pettan and Jeff Todd Titon, theorize applied ethnomusicology, offer histories, and detail practical examples with the goal of stimulating further development in the field. The essays in the book, all newly commissioned for the volume, reflect scholarship and data gleaned from eleven countries by over twenty contributors. Themes and locations of the research discussed encompass all world continents. The authors present case studies encompassing multiple places; other that discuss circumstances within a geopolitical unit, either near or far. Many of the authors consider marginalized peoples and communities; others argue for participatory action research. All are united in their interest in overarching themes such as conflict, education, archives, and the status of indigenous peoples and immigrants. A volume that at once defines its field, advances it, and even acts as a large-scale applied ethnomusicology project in the way it connects ideas and methodology, The Oxford Handbook of Applied Ethnomusicology is a seminal contribution to the study of ethnomusicology, theoretical and applied.
