Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world, “the footprint between Africa and Asia,” with a history marked by many waves of migration. Over the centuries, a wide range of styles of music, of instruments and of dance have become a part of the island’s musical palette. Despite this and the resulting diversity of regional musical particularities, musicians claim there is one element they all share: a common rhythmical base.
To explore this claim and the meaning of “rhythm” in the Malagasy context, Jenny Fuhr makes use of her dual role as musician and researcher. Self-reflexive field research combined with learning to play and perform Malagasy music enables a profound intercultural dialogue. This book shows how her intense involvement in music-making and a constant dialogue between musical experiences and discourses opens up new paths of understanding. In doing so, it challenges prevalent Western analytical perspectives on music and demonstrates the need for a more performance-based approach to ethnomusicology.

Yet there are few resources to assist all those that are interested in moving toward integrated care. This has been a major impediment to more widespread adoption of integrated care. The two co-editors of this proposed volume have produced some of the key books in this area: Dr. James (along with co-editor Ray Folen) has recently produced The Primary Care Consultant which is a good resource that helps define the unfortunately usually misunderstood and neglected consultation liaison function of the integrated care behavioral provider. Dr. O’Donohue has co-written a book A Primer of Integrative Behavioral Care (Prometheus Press, in press) that is designed to serve as a general introduction to integrated case; as well as co-edited some more specific titles on medical cost offset, integrated care and substance abuse, and Behavioral Integrative Care (2005, Brunner Routledge). Please see our enclosed vitas for more information.
What these books fail to do is to provide very concrete practice guidelines and other associated practical tools for the practicing integrative care behavioral health professional. This book is designed to fill this important gap. All chapters will be designed to provide useful materials to understand this quite different mode of practice. None of the chapters will be academically oriented, although all information will be evidenced based. As such it will reach a wide audience and have no direct competitors. We believe because of the editors’ profile in this area, the excellent reputations of the chapter authors, and the practicality of this book it will sell very well.
