The afterword provides an overview of the main themes in the book. The author argues that meta-ethnography is only the beginning of the return of comparative studies in ethnomusicology. She suggests that in the future, a combination of meta-ethnography with ethnographic accounts of fieldwork and musical analysis will set the stage for an integrated approach called comparative ethnomusicology. Finally, the author argues that in a time of global conflict and religious extremism, scholars have a responsibility to demonstrate possibilities for religious harmony and peaceful coexistence whenever possible

Keywords:   religious extremism, global conflict, religious harmony, peaceful coexistence, meta-ethnography, fieldwork, musical analysis, comparative ethnomusicology, scholarly responsibility
