Summary
Young people all over the world know how powerfully music communicates. Yet popular music was neglected as an area of scholarly inquiry in communication and media studies until late in the last decade. The appearance of the first edition of James Lull's edited collection of essays Popular Music and Communication was a pioneering effort that helped introduce and legitimize the serious study of popular music and its relation to social and cultural interaction. Now the editor has assembled an expanded second edition of Popular Music and Communication. Core essays from the first edition by scholars such as Simon Frith and Larry Grossberg have been thoroughly revised and updated. Fascinating new articles appear on subjects such as the communicative potential of modern music recording technologies, popular music and social dance, the visual pleasure of music video, how musicians themselves articulate their communicative intention, disruption caused by popular music in the political upheavals of Eastern Europe and the cultural roles of popular music among Vietnamese immigrants in the United States
