*The 1943 edition has a different introduction as has fewer errors and lies.

There is an academic Suppressed Music information/discussion group.
Here is what Martin Anderson wrote about it, when it began in September
2002:

The International Forum for Suppressed Music is pleased to announce the
founding of the IFSM Suppressed Music Mailing List, intended to provide a
platform for the discussion of composers working under, persecuted by or
exiled from totalitarian or other repressive regimes. The current focus of
the IFSM's activities is music in Nazi Germany and Austria and, shortly, the
Soviet Union and other communist countries, but we hope the discussion on
the list will cover all areas where composers and other musicians have
suffered from the interventions of illiberal governments: Armenian music
under the Turks, American composers blackballed by the McCarthyites, Spain
under Franco, and so on - postings can cover any relevant topic. We expect
that most postings will cover "classical" music, defined as broadly as
possible, but there is no reason to exclude popular and folk music (etc.)
from our discussions. Membership of the list is open to anyone interested in
the subject. You can join by visiting
http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/suppressed-music.html and following the
instructions you'll find there.

We would be grateful if, when you make your first posting, you could
introduce yourself and your particular area of interest to the list - other
listers will doubtless find it useful to know who else is working on the
same or allied subjects.

Good luck
