Made in Hungary: Studies in Popular Music serves as a comprehensive and thorough introduction to the history, sociology, and musicology of twentieth-century Hungarian popular music. The volume consists of essays by scholars of Hungarian music, and covers the major figures, styles, and social contexts of pop music in Hungary. Each essay provides adequate context so readers understand why the figure or genre under discussion is of lasting significance to Hungarian popular music. The book first presents a general description of the history and background of popular music in Hungary, followed by essays that are organized into thematic sections: Scenes, Culture and Identities; History, Politics and Remembering; and Artists, Receptions and Audiences.
