In this book, twenty-four scholars investigate the relationship between music and dictatorship in twentieth-century Europe and Latin America. The music is explored as a political phenomenon in fifteen nations under totalitarian regimes: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, France, Greece, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Spain, and Hungary. Historical and aesthetical articles face both individual people (for instance, Chavez, Ligeti, Massarani or Villa-Lobos) as well whole generations of composers operating under dictatorship (for example, in the communist regimes of Poland and Serbia; in France under Vichy; in Franco's Spain, Salazar's Portugal, or in Revolutionary Cuba). The contributors are: Rachel Beckles Willson, Dario Borim, Steve Butterman, Teresa Cascudo, Myriam Chimenes, Regis Duprat, Christoph Flamm, Marina Frolova-Walker, Thomas Garcia, Melita Milin, Simone Munz, Marcos Napolitano, Nina Noeske, Karen Painter, Gemma Perez Zalduondo, Daniel Perry, Carlo Piccardi, Marc-Andre Roberge, Katy Romanou, Mattias Tischer, Andrzej Tuchowski, Luis Velasco Pufleau, Pablo Vila, Maria Alice Volpe.
