Music in Pacific Island Cultures
by Brian Diettrich, Jane Freeman Moulin, Michael Webb

This volume in the Global Music Series covers music in Melanesia, Micronesia, and French Polynesia, with each of the three authors covering one of the areas. Despite the constant switching among authors, the prose is pretty seamless. The subject matter is fascinating - I started this book knowing nothing about the music of the Pacific Islands and really got into it all over the course of the book. Even though Music in Pacific Island Cultures is by necessity an overview, it still conveyed all the richness and depth of a wide variety of musical cultures and practices.
