Routledge Music Handbooks are comprehensive, must-have surveys of a core sub-discipline that address landmarks in the field, but also map out the emerging critical terrain and are aimed at the library market. Handbooks introduce fundamental topics and ideas, delineate the diversity and complexity of the subject, and stimulate dialogue among scholars and students approaching the topic from divergent backgrounds. Handbooks should define the current state of theory and research in the field and create a foundation for future scholarship and study.
