This book thus fulfills the objective it has set for itself to make comprehensible and accessible the "fundamental and progressive" ideas which run through the studies currently flourishing in the four corners of the world concerning the history and the heritage of popular music...and the balance between theoretical and empirical contributions contributes to the relevance of the whole.
