As you read through the essays in this collection you will become familiar with music therapists who are interested in cultural dialogue. The book includes essays on communication, culture, and community, as well as reports and columns from fourteen countries around the world. Perhaps culture is some kind of last frontier and therefore one we approach with fear, trepidation and a degree of anxiety? This last frontier reaches into the core of who we are as human beings. It ventures into the complexities of identity, not only individual, but group identities. It shapes our territories, our homes. It determines our music, our healing practices. And to make it even more potentially threatening, these cultural landscapes are on the move. How are music therapists coping with these radical changes, and how are they continuing their professional discourse, which was established in a time when these dramatic cultural shifts were perhaps present but not considered a force to reckon with? The book will be of relevance for all students and professionals of music therapy, and for clinicians and researchers in related fields. As music, culture, and health are seminal topics in the life of most people, the general public will also find much of interest in this anthology.
