Providing new analysis, anthropologists, ethnomusicologists, sociologists, and philologists have developed a concept of hybridization that has exceeded the boundaries of their established disciplines. The authors, experts in Argentinian and Italian tango, Algerian rai, Catalonian sardana, Andalusian flamenco and Greek rebetika, focus on transcultural hybridization particularly from an ethnographic perspective. Additional contributors offer important epistemological and methodological interrogations and discuss the macro-structures of the music industry in the global markets.

Mao Zedong's Little Red Book (Quotations from Chairman Mao) - a compilation of the Chinese leader's speeches and writings - is one of the most visible and ubiquitous symbols of twentieth-century radicalism. Published for the first time in 1964, it rapidly became the must-have accessory for Red Guards and revolutionaries from Berkeley to Bamako. Yet, despite its worldwide circulation and enduring presence there has, until now, been no serious scholarly effort to understand this seminal text as a global historical phenomenon. Mao's Little Red Book brings together a range of innovative scholars from around the world to explore the fascinating variety of uses and forms that Mao's Quotations has taken, from rhetoric, art and song, to talisman, badge, and weapon. The authors of this pioneering volume use Mao's Quotations as a medium through which to re-examine the history of the twentieth-century world, challenging established ideas about the book to reveal its remarkable global impact.
