Funding Information:
The reviews section of this issue opens with Aaron S. Allen’s substantial reflection on Sustainable Futures for Music Cultures: An Ecological Perspective edited by Huib Schippers and Catherine Grant. This edited volume is the research output of a five-year project funded by the Australian Research Council and presents nine case studies across a range of music cultures. In each case study, a unifying ‘five-domain framework’ is used to explore issues of sustainability. Allen’s extremely thorough survey identifies the strengths of the volume but also criticises its lack of engagement with issues of ‘strong sustainability’ and ecology. The review that follows is by CedarBough T. Saeji who writes on Keith Howard’s monograph SamulNori: Korean Percussion for a Contemporary World, a book that grew from its origins as a case study in the Sustainable Futures for Music Cultures research project already described.
