Markets and Margins: Australian Country Music Volume 3 is the third volume in this series of books tracing the evolution, development and practice of country music in Australia. Markets and Margins is particularly concerned with the machinations of the country music industry in Australia. Individual chapters provide a survey of current industry practices; analysis of sponsorship and branding within country; filmic representations of the industry; and considerations of gender politics within country music. Case-studies on Tex Morton and Ted Egan examine their role in advancing the country music industry, while various geographical margins as sites of country music production are also investigated. To assist future researchers, this volume contains an expanded bibliography of country music studies, including all references from previous volumes. This resource provides the ideal point of call for any student, fan or professional needing research materials on country music. The book is targeted at those Australian country fans who wish to explore the roots and contexts of their music and to students and researchers interested in the study and analysis of Australian country. The anthology is published by the Australian Institute of Country Music (AICM) at Gympie, Queensland, Australia as a parallel initiative with its annual Australian Country Music Conferences which were inaugurated in 2002.
