520    The aim of this study is to increase the reader's 
       understanding of folk music within an historical, European
       framework, and to keep the genre alive as a dynamic and 
       changing artform. The book addresses a plethora of 
       questions through its detailed examination of a wide range
       of music from vastly different national and cultural 
       identities. It also attempts to elucidate the connections 
       among and the development of contemporary folk music 
       across Europe, firstly by examining the ways in which 
       scholars of different ideological and artistic ambitions 
       have collected, studied, and performed it, then by 
       investigating the relationship between folk and popular 
       music. This book will serve well as either a textbook for 
       upper-level, undergraduate courses or as a research tool 
       for postgraduate study. Ethnomusicologists will also have 
       a distinct interest in the opinions postulated and 
       examined herein.
