Pierre Bourdieu, in Pour un mouvement social européen,

"L'histoire sociale enseigne qu'il n'y a pas de politique sociale sans un mouvement social capable de l'imposer ( et que ce n'est pas le marché, comme on tente de le faire croire aujourd'hui, mais le mouvement social qui a « civilisé » l'économie de marché, tout en contribuant grandement à son efficacité ). En conséquence, la question, pour tous ceux qui veulent réellement opposer une Europe sociale à une Europe des banques et de la monnaie, flanquée d'une Europe policière et pénitentiaire ( déjà très avancée ) et d'une Europe militaire ( conséquence probable de l'intervention au Kosovo ), est de savoir comment mobiliser les forces capables de parvenir à cette fin et à quelles instances demander ce travail de mobilisation.

The Oxford Handbook of the New Cultural History of Music. Edited by Jane Fulcher

The Oxford Handbook of the New Cultural History of Music 
Edited by Jane Fulcher
Oxford University Press
2011

Description
As the field of Cultural History grows in prominence in the academic world, an understanding of the history of culture has become vital to scholars across disciplines. The Oxford Handbook of the New Cultural History of Music cultivates a return to the fundamental premises of cultural history in the cutting-edge work of musicologists concerned with cultural history and historians who deal with music. In this volume, noted academics from both of these disciplines illustrate the continuing endeavor of cultural history to grasp the realms of human experience, understanding, and communication as they are manifest or expressed symbolically through various layers of culture and in many forms of art. The Oxford Handbook of the New Cultural History of Music fosters and reflects a sustained dialogue about their shared goals and techniques, rejuvenating their work with new insights into the field itself.
Features
First systematic combination of musicologists and historians
Demonstrates how music is becoming unique mode of access into specific cites of cultural representation, exchange, contestation and the construction of experience
New theoretical dimensions or inquiries characteristic of "the New Cultural History of Music"
Features contributors at the forefront of both musicology and history

Jane Fulcher is Professor of Musicology at the University of Michigan.
