Recent years have seen two noticeable trends in Popular Music Studies. These have been on the one hand a series of works which have tried to document the 'local' music scene and, on the other, accounts of processes of globalisation. While not uninterested in the intermediate Nation-State level, both trends have tended to regard it as an area of increasingly less importance. To state the matter more boldly, both trends have underplayed the continually important role of the Nation-State.
