  • Description: Popular music has long constituted a battlefield for musicians. By expressing political views or demanding greater artistic freedom, they have struggled against states attempting to exert greater control over political opposition and cultural production. Here, Cote demonstrates that it is plausible to consider the actions of popular musicians and their treatment at the hands of state authorities in terms of security, and that further investigation of the popular musician within the context of security studies may be warranted.
