Congratulations to Mark Ferraguto on the December 2014 release of Music and Diplomacy from the Early Modern Era to the Present, a book he co-edited with collaborators Rebekah Ahrendt and Damien Mahiet. The book is published by Palgrave Macmillan.
The text explores how music (its concepts, practices, and institutions) shapes the exercise of diplomacy, the pursuit of power, and the conduct of international relations. Drawing together sixteen international scholars with backgrounds in musicology, ethnomusicology, political science, cultural history, French studies, German studies, and communication, the volume interweaves historical, theoretical, and practical perspectives.
