Leslie's current practice and research interests focus on music therapy and adult cancer care, and his previous books include The Handbook of Music Therapy, co-edited with Sarah Hoskyns (Routledge, 2002). Brynjulf Stige is Professor in Music Therapy at the Grieg Academy, University of Bergen, Norway. He was founding editor of the Nordic Journal of Music Therapy and founding co-editor of Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy. His previous books, including Invitation to Community Music Therapy, co-authored with Leif Edvard Aaro (Routledge, 2012), have explored relationships between music therapy, culture and community.


"Leslie Bunt and Brynjulf Stige have crafted an exceptional 'coming of age' book that thoroughly documents the developmental, cultural, and historical field of Music Therapy. Their book offers the first truly comprehensive treatment of a profession that spans the diversity of human conditions and cultures. It is a practical and a scholarly offering that also embraces the mysteries of Music Therapy as 'An Art beyond Words.'" - Carolyn Kenny, Ph.D., MT-BC, MTA "The writing is clear, direct, and appealing throughout, drawing the reader into multiple facets and considerations. The book has a global perspective, both literally in terms of drawing examples and literature from a very broad geographic representation, and metaphorically in dealing with the full range of issues concerning music therapy, including treatment, training, research, and the evolving social role of the music therapist. The book is insightful, intellectually broad and pluralistic, contemporary, and poetic. [...] Like good guides who use representative stories to help tourists grasp the significance and context of what they see, Bunt and Stige provide the narratives and broad contexts that will serve as a fine introduction to the vast contemporary landscape of music therapy." - Kenneth Aigen, New York University
