"... this collection reminds us of how much can be learned from what are often situated as the margins.... The idea of 'nation' is thus under challenge from within and without, as these essays insightfully disclose. The collection is not only a selection of case studies on internal heterogeneity, but also on Spain's response to musical globalisation."
-Bruce Johnson, Macquarie University, University of Turku, University of Glasgow, IASPM@Journal vol. 5 no. 2
"Made in Spain not only provides us with the first comprehensive overview of Spanish popular music, but also offers the international reader a vision of Spanish music as told by indigenous researchers, which allows for the dismissal of unfounded stereotypes and a reflection on the notions of centre and periphery in academia. This is an extraordinary step towards the consolidation of popular music studies in Spain."
