Book Description
Theodor W. Adorno broached key questions about the role of music in contemporary society and argued that it affected consciousness and was a means of social management and control. Asserting that music sociology can be greatly enriched by returning to Adorno's focus on music as a dynamic medium of social life, this book considers cognition, the emotions and music as a management device.
