Dance of Life: Popular Music and Politics in Southeast Asia. (Abstracts).

Lockard, Craig A., 1998, Dance of Life: Popular Music and Politics in Southeast Asia. Honolulu: University of Hawaii, pp. 328.

This book provides broad cultural and historical frameworks of role and impact of popular musicians and their music on contemporary politics in Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia--including, in the latter case, Sabah and Sarawak. Written in a lucid and engaging style, Dance of Life is an important contribution to the growing literature on popular culture, a subject too long snubbed by most Asianists (John A. Lent).
