Abstract

book reviews "distinctively Korean," and "new"(p. 173) were applied to actual music-making in the Olympic context. Dilling's interpretations, which relate to the issues of nationalism, universality, revolutionary art, elitism, and military culture, are perceptive and guide the reader to a comprehensive understanding of the complexities of the Seoul games. In addition, the author connects the games to broader issues of politics, human relations, globalism, democracy in Korea, and psychology as it relates to Koreans and how the Seoul Olympic Games were distinctively Korean. This book, in addition to its contribution to Korean traditional folk music research in the English language, is one of the first essay collections to examine the procedures of intrinsic change in Korean folk music, providing various perspectives by scholars in the field. One prominent theme shared by the authors and well stated by Dilling is the idea of adaptation and "creation from within the tradition" (p. 199). Another issue addressed in five of the articles, and clearly deserving further research, is the impact of the cultural asset system on Korean folk music. This book presents a significant contribution to the field of ethnomusicology by providing a deeper understanding of Korean traditional folk music and
