Abstract

This volume investigates the relationships between music and propaganda in the twentieth century. Music can be utilized to attribute and ascribe multivalent meanings. Due to its great evocative power, it has often been directly exploited by regimes and governments. In what ways does music convey the messages of propaganda? Which are the political and economic implications behind musical propaganda? Much has been written about the relationship between music and propaganda during the two world wars, but the post-war dimensions of the topic also require investigation. [UNC Chapel Hill.]
