Find Music as Social Life: The 4/5(85).   Although democratic governments have introduced a number of institutional reforms in part intended to increase citizens’ political involvement, studies show a continued decline in regular political engagement. This book examines different forms of political participation in democracies, and in what way the delegation of public responsibilities—or, the diffusion of politics—has affected.

Creative Participation presents the theory and practice of new innovative forms of political participation. Examples covered in the book include consumers engaging in political shopping, capitalists building green developments, UK Muslim youth campaigning on the internet, Sicilian housewives taking on. Tracing the history of the culture as far back as the fifties, this book examines the tensions between authenticity and commerce as festivals grew into a widespread, professionalized industry. Setting the scene as a fragmented, yet highly competitive market, Music Festivals and the Politics of Participation examines the emergence of key trends. Vibrant democracies are characterized by a continuous expansion of the available forms of participation. This expansion has confronted many researchers with the dilemma of using either a dated conceptualization of participation excluding many new. Political yard signs are one of the most conspicuous features of American political campaigns, yet they have received little attention as a form of political communication or participation.

The book probes the assumptions around participation and partnership which drove development discourse and practice in the pre-crisis epoch of neoliberal globalisation in order to question both. The outcome is an empirically grounded but conceptually rich critique which ought to give us sharp tools for a better understanding of how to achieve.   This book examines the usefulness and limits of DIY citizenship, exploring the diverse forms of political participation and “critical making” that have emerged in recent years. The authors and artists in this collection describe DIY citizens whose activities range from activist fan blogging and video production to knitting and the creation.

The stress on ’social life’ and ’politics of participation’ in the title is reinforced one way or another by each chapter, so I consider this book a great achievement and, perhaps, it is a major turning point in ethnomusicology.".
