"If it is true that new knowledge always demands new tools, then we are surely on the way to a paradigm shift with the publication of Krin Gabbard's two masterful anthologies of jazz. The wonderful introductions--in themselves masterpieces of preparation for a new discipline--are complemented in every way by a variety of absolutely first-rate writing. We may well be glancing with these anthologies through the telescope that will show us the future of jazz studies in the international academy. These are indispensable tools for anyone who wishes to understand sociology and philosophy of knowledge for our era."--Houston A. Baker, Jr.

Alistair Fox holds a personal chair in the Department of English and is director of the Centre for Research on National Identity at the University of Otago.Barry Keith Grant is professor of film studies and popular culture at Brock University.
