Studying popular music

If some of you are particularly interested in studying popular music, or are even thinking of doing research for your master's degree on some aspect of popular music, there are two books in French which are essential reading.

One is "De la Culture Rock" by Claude Chastagner

(There is a review about the book, here https://transatlantica.revues.org/5721 )

The other is "Pour une esthétique du rap" by Christophe Rubin

(There is a short article about this book here https://www.scienceshumaines.com/pour-une-esthetique-du-rap_fr_4533.html )
