Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Thanks for the links to the reviews. I am going to get this book and it is the 'Caught By The River' review that most re-assures me that I will actually read properly it rather than pick at it. In particular the reviewer's "Roud ... ... sets us on a wider excursion into a history all of its own, social, economic, political and artistic." and also his highlighting Roud's mention of "definitional expansion"

Neither of those get much priority in the other reviews or in the discussion here.
