520    "Listening to China is our first important foray in the 
       field of global music history, which is rapidly 
       establishing itself as the main area of growth in music 
       studies. Compellingly and expertly written by a seasoned 
       scholar, it tells the story of how Westerners experienced 
       China with their ears at the time of the Sino-Western 
       encounter of ca. 1800, and what this meant for their own 
       construction of musical knowledge. It explores two kinds 
       of Western practices of listening in and to China: ear-
       witness accounts by travelers to China, including 
       diplomats, trade officials, and missionaries; and writings
       about Chinese music by European writers, philosophers, and
       music historians who constructed China's sound in their 
       imaginations. The book's primary objective is a better 
       understanding of how Westerners gained/gathered sonic 
       knowledge of China and to investigate the aural dimensions
       of the Sino-Western encounter At the same time, the book 
       reconsiders the idea of a specifically Western music 
       history by showing how it was precisely the comparison 
       with a great "other"--China--that helped the idea itself 
       to emerge. Ultimately, the book draws attention to the 
       importance of China for the construction of (musical) 
       knowledge during and following the European 
       Enlightenment."--|cProvided by publisher
