I think using "Political Economy" in book titles isn't as popular now as it was 10 years ago. But for some non-musical, non critical theory, titles from education:
The Architecture of Alienation: the Political Economy of Professional Education by David Clarke.
Schooling as a Ritual Performance: Towards a Political Economy of Educational Symbols and Gestures by Peter McClaren (who happens to teach at UCLA).
