Abstract

Music and war are closely linked in history with propaganda and pursasion. Music, however, can also be a medium for artists to express their attitude to the war. This book illuminates the phenomenon of "music and war" from different perspectives. The range stretches from the Renaissance over the two World Wars to Woodstock, contemporary film music and Death Metal. For the first time, the contributions offer an access to the wide "battlefield" of music and war and provide insightful insights into the theme complex, which is always up-to-date.
