Music in Mainland Southeast Asia
by Gavin Douglas

Another in the Global Music series, this volume cover the music of Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.It's a lot of ground to cover in a short book and Douglas mostly succeeds. He gets the reader familiar with a lot of different kinds of music and the roles they play in their respective societies. However, Douglas also spends a lot of time discussing the political situations and histories of each country and how that relates to music. It was all very interesting, but I could have done with less of this and more discussion of the structures and workings of the music itself.
