A history of Western music from an Eliasian perspective

Olle Edström, Professor of Musicology at Göteborg University, has written a history of Western music from an Eliasian perspective. Details are:

A Different Story: Aesthetics and the History of Western Music (Hillsdale, NY: Pendragon Press, 2008). 309 pp. ISBN 978-1-57647-123-4.

The original book in Swedish came out in 2002, but only now has it been translated into English.

I plan to review the book myself in Figurations, but I thought readers of this blog might like to know about this book in advance.
