Book Information

   

Title: The Languages of Global Hip Hop
Edited By: Marina Terkourafi
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=133372&SearchType=Basic
Series Title: Advances in Sociolinguistics
Description:

"This book is a feast not just for hip hop specialists but for all those
interested in the interfaces between music, language and society. The
chapters illustrate the diversity of contexts where this music is enjoyed,
but also the common features found in the hip hop production of various
cultures... Thanks to the range of materials studied (Norway, Egypt,
Cyprus, South Korea and more) and the detail provided in the individual
analyses, the book represents a key contribution to work in this
fascinating field, and will be essential reading for future research."

Abdelali Bentahila and Eirlys Davies, Abdelmalek Essaadi University,
Tangier, Morocco
