An introductory textbook which uses short bite-sized snap shots to introduce the key debates & approaches, technologies and genres in popular music. Written by an internationally recognised authority it explores the 'ipodification' of popular music whilst providing clear social context for the field as a whole.


This is the first textbook on Pop Music to be written after the start of the iPod era. The book is organized in accessible sections which cover the main themes of research and teaching. It examines:
* The key approaches to understanding popular music
* The main settings of exchange and consumption
* The role of technology in the production of popular music
* The main genres of popular music
* The key debates of the present day Barbazon writes with verve and penetration. Her approach starts with how most people actually consume music today and transfers this onto the plain of study. The organization of the material enables teachers and students to shuffle from one topic to the other. Yet the book provides an unparalleled network to the core library of concepts and issues in the field. As such, it is the perfect study guide for undergraduates located in this exciting and expanding field.
