With an accompanying CD of banned music from around the world, the book also includes a discussion of the causes, methods and logic behind contemporary attempts by governments, commercial corporations, and religious authorities to prevent people from hearing certain kinds of music and, in particular, the content of particular songs. Cases come from a surprisingly wide range of countries, including Israel, Turkey, North Korea, Mauritania, Mexico, France, South Africa, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Cuba, and the United States, and more. In addition to presenting a large number of specific instances, this volume also explores the logic behind these concerns--including two instances where censors explain, in their own words, what they were doing--and the implications of a digital world for music censorship in the future.

    I enjoyed the free CD that came with it and play it all the time. The CD helps me relate the history and circumstances of the music to the message it conveys. I got this as a free gift from an international radio station, just for participation in one of their programs and it was like the best gift ever. :) ..all the music convey a message of struggle and freedom all over the world.
