Simon Frith has been one of the most important figures in the emergence and subsequent development of popular music studies. From his earliest academic publication, The Sociology of Rock (1978), through to his recent work on the live music industry in the UK, in his desire to ’take popular music seriously’ he has probably been cited more than any other author in the field. Uniquely, he has combined this work with a lengthy career as a music critic for leading publications on both sides of the Atlantic. The contributions to this volume of essays and memoirs seek to honour Frith’s achievements, but they are not merely ’about Frith’. Rather, they are important interventions by leading scholars in the field, including Robert Christgau, Antoine Hennion, Peter J. Martin and Philip Tagg. The focus on ’sociology and industry’ and ’aesthetics and values’ reflect major themes in Frith’s own work, which can also be found within popular music studies more generally. As such the volume will become an essential resource for those working in popular music studies, as well as in musicology, sociology and cultural and media studies.

Praise for Freedom Found "As we search for answers to prevention of violence in our communities, I believe our children will lead the way to a more peaceful world by learning to make wise choices. I strongly recommend Freedom Found, an original story dramatizing the importance of making wise choices." -Paula Oliver Pell, MD, FAACP, FAAP, past president, Southern Medical Association "Lessons well taught at home will endure. And young people learn best through intergenerational interactivity. So this volume is an absolute gold mine for parents who wish to homeschool their children and youth in values education. The best part is that the learning process that you choose will be fun. Freedom Found has much inspiration and many creative possibilities for your family, and even for your neighbourhood. Don't pass this one by!" -Rev. John Harries, MDiv, spiritual educator and family counselor, Toronto, Ontario "The message of the story of Freedom Found is timely, necessary, and true." -Jane Russell Geddings, choreographer Freedom Found is a story of tragedy, triumph, and the power of the human spirit. Through the use of theater, music, and movement, this drama tells a moving tale of one family's struggle for dignity and hope across three generations. Designed to inspire empathy in children, teens, and families, it describes a move from victimization to empowerment. In their homeland, the family paid a heavy price in their fight for freedom of choice. To protect the surviving members from the extremist regime that took the father, they escape to what they hope are safer lands. But in their new home, they encounter oppression of a different kind. Although they are earnest, industrious, and principled, frequent challenges arise to test their resolve. Thanks to wise decision-making, their tenacity and identity as individuals and as a family only increase. Despite tough times in their new home, the family is determined to emerge stronger, with renewed perspective, insight, and self-respect. The cost has certainly been high, but they never lose hope for a bright future. Theirs is a compelling story of struggle, pride, pain, and victory. Offering valuable life lessons, Freedom Found is a new musical journey for the stage, the story of the quest for the freedom to Choose Who to Be.TM
