Review "Sound Targets reveals just how pervasively popular music has shaped contemporary U.S. military culture.... This thoughtful and provocative study will certainly attract a wide audience concerned with music's roles in the time of war." —W. Anthony Sheppard, author of Revealing Masks: Exotic Influences and Ritualized Performance in Modernist Music Theater (W. Anthony Sheppard, author of Revealing Masks: Exotic Influences and Ritualized Performance in Modernist Music Theater 2009) "I highly recommend this book for all those interested in relationships between artistic expression and politics, war, militarism, and psychology. Its writing style is both accessible and sophisticated, making it appropriate for use in either undergraduate or graduate courses." —Journal of Folklore Research (Journal of Folklore Research ) "Pieslak's Sound Targets offers a serious and insightful examination of how music was used by American soldiers in the Iraq War." —Times Higher Education (Times Higher Education ) "All in all, the author has amassed a profusion of valuable information and data about music and the Iraq War... Research into music's role in armed conflict is in its infancy... and we are in need of the kinds of histories and contexts he establishes and the accounts he records, especially in such an eminently readable and accessible text.... [W]e must recognize Jonathan Pieslak for having bravely opened the door for further exploration through his pioneering study." —American Music (American Music ) About the Author Jonathan Pieslak is Associate Professor of Music at the City College and Graduate Center, CUNY. He lives in New York City.
