Rock Me on the Water by Book Resume:

In this exceptional cultural history, Atlantic Senior Editor Ronald Brownstein—“one of America's best political journalists (The Economist)—tells the kaleidoscopic story of one monumental year that marked the city of Los Angeles’ creative peak, a glittering moment when popular culture was ahead of politics in predicting what America would become. Los Angeles in 1974 exerted more influence over popular culture than any other city in America. Los Angeles that year, in fact, dominated popular culture more than it ever had before, or would again. Working in film, recording, and television studios around Sunset Boulevard, living in Brentwood and Beverly Hills or amid the flickering lights of the Hollywood Hills, a cluster of transformative talents produced an explosion in popular culture which reflected the demographic, social, and cultural realities of a changing America. At a time when Richard Nixon won two presidential elections with a message of backlash against the social changes unleashed by the sixties, popular culture was ahead of politics in predicting what America would become. The early 1970s in Los Angeles was the time and the place where conservatives definitively lost the battle to control popular culture. Rock Me on the Water traces the confluence of movies, music, television, and politics in Los Angeles month by month through that transformative, magical year. Ronald Brownstein reveals how 1974 represented a confrontation between a massive younger generation intent on change, and a political order rooted in the status quo. Today, we are again witnessing a generational cultural divide. Brownstein shows how the voices resistant to change may win the political battle for a time, but they cannot hold back the future.

Rock Me Gently by Judith Kelly Book Resume:

In the 1950s, shortly after her father's death, Judith Kelly was left in the care of nuns at a Catholic orphanage while her mother searched for a place for them to live. She was eight years old. But far from being cared for, Judith found herself in a savage and terrifying institution where physical, emotional and sexual abuse was the daily norm and the children's lives were reduced to stark survival. As the months became years and no word came from her mother, she sought comfort from the girls around her, and especially the bright, angel-voiced Frances. When a tragic accident robbed Judith of her dearest friend, the memories were too traumatic to confront. It was not until years later, on a Kibbutz in Israel, that a friendship with an elderly Holocaust survivor gave Judith the strength to revisit her past - and the orphanage of her broken childhood.

Confederate Sheet Music by E. Lawrence Abel Book Resume:

During the American Civil War, songs united and inspired people on both sides. The North had a well-established music publishing industry when the war broke out, but the South had no such industry. The importance of music as an expression of the South’s beliefs was obvious; as one music publisher said, “The South must not only fight her own battles but sing her own songs and dance to music composed by her own children.” Southern entrepreneurs quickly rose to the challenge. This reference book is distinguished by three major differences from previously published works. First, it lists sheet music that is no longer extant (and listed nowhere else). Second, it gives complete lyrics for all extant songs, a rich source for researchers. And third, a brief historical background has been provided for many of the songs. Each entry provides as much of the following as possible (staying faithful to the typography of each title page): the title as published, names of all lyricists, composers and publishers; dates of publication; cities of publication; and if applicable, the names of catalogs or magazines in which the song appeared. Music published in Southern cities under Federal occupation is excluded.

We'll use you We'll abuse you We'll leave you begging for more Toxsin: Rock stars on and off the stage Syon Braden writes and plays the most extreme-and profitable-music from the depths of his shredded heart. He's got a double-platinum record, adoring fans, and success for his band Toxsin-but it's what he can't have that he craves. Custom leather designer Kate Napier has her sights set on success, and that means keeping irresistible rock stars like Syon out of her bed. The chance to tour with the band and provide them with a fantastic custom wardrobe is too major an opportunity to turn down. But immersion in the dark, wild world of Toxsin means Kate's about to get rocked...and she'll never be the same.

Bugle Resounding by Bruce C. Kelley,Mark A. Snell Book Resume:

In the mid-nineteenth century the United States was musically vibrant. Rising industrialization, a growing middle class, and increasing concern for the founding of American centers of art created a culture that was rich in musical capital. Beyond its importance to the people who created and played it is the fact that this music still influences our culture today. Although numerous academic resources examine the music and musicians of the Civil War era, the research is spread across a variety of disciplines and is found in a wide array of scholarly journals, books, and papers. It is difficult to assimilate this diverse body of research, and few sources are dedicated solely to a rigorous and comprehensive investigation of the music and the musicians of this era. This anthology, which grew out of the first two National Conferences on Music of the Civil War Era, is an initial attempt to address that need. Those conferences established the first academic setting solely devoted to exploring the effects of the Civil War on music and musicians. Bridging musicology and history, these essays represent the forefront of scholarship in music of the Civil War era. Each one makes a significant contribution to research in the music of this era and will ultimately encourage more interdisciplinary research on a subject that has relevance both for its own time and for ours. The result is a readable, understandable volume on one of the few understudied—yet fascinating—aspects of the Civil War era.

Swan Songs & Swine Songs by E.C. Lin Book Resume:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Born, raised, and educated on the island of Formosa, which means “beautiful” in Portuguese, E. C. Lin came to America legally in his twenties to seek freedom and adventure. He diligently studied English as his fourth language, after the Formosan, the Chinese, and the Japanese. He also worked hard on his chemistry and got a good job at the Chicago lab of a giant chemical company named Sun where he was treated fairly and nicely. Lin loves American music. After getting tired of doing cover songs, he taught himself guitar playing and song writing. And he has begun to compose his own music. After a while, he has developed quite a repertoire. In two different years, Lin entered two original tunes each in the Billboard Magazine’s prestigious song contest, to which songwriters the world over, submitted their best work. After several rounds of tough elimination, all four songs had reached the finalist level. Although none of them was placed in the top three spots, Lin is elated to know that he is competing with world-class songwriters. And for his efforts, Lin has been awarded with a certificate of achievement for each tune. Another year, Lin was a winner in the Chicago-Sun Times’s writing contest that was to promote an epic musical, honoring Elvis Presley. All five award-winning songs are included in this publication for readers to enjoy. Lin urges readers not to think of other tunes that he didn’t enter into contests that usually require an entry fee. (Entry fee in the Chicago Sun-Times’s contest was free). Lin used to showcase his work in the Chicago area’s night clubs—often backed up by John Rice’s hot bond. Some of Lin’s signature songs had become hits. Lin loves dogs, cats, movies, gardening, swimming, dancing, and traveling that help him active and young. In the summer of 2016, he made a bold move to Las Vegas where he enjoys three free concerts on Fremont Street nightly and tries not to be robbed by no-arm bandits. That’s another story.

Many Years Ago in Arkansas by Jennie Mathis Silcott Book Resume:

This book is about the lives and times of a real familynot only the struggles and the unbelievable heartaches and disappointments in our lives, but also how the Lord worked in our lives in the midst of it all. It is with godly fear and much humility that I undertake the task of writing this book as I am in no sense of the word a writer. My purpose in writing this book is to help and give courage to someone that may think his or her situation hopeless. My prayer is that God may make this book a blessing to many. Our mother was born Ida Louise Durham, on October 28, 1921, the third living child of Mrs. Bertha McQuire Durham and Mr. Jeff Durham, in Marianna, Arkansas. She attended school in Arkansas. She lost her father at the age of seven years. Life began to be difficult from that day on. It is unbelievable the hardships this lady went through, but she was a fighter from her heart. She never let the disappointments in her life get her down. She always told us, When life knocks you down, dont lay there, get yourself up. Tomorrow is another day. She truly was an example to us, her children, and to many people who came her way during her seventy-seven years of life.

Meet Me in the Bathroom by Lizzy Goodman Book Resume:

Joining the ranks of the classics Please Kill Me, Our Band Could Be Your Life, and Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, an intriguing oral history of the post-9/11 decline of the old-guard music industry and rebirth of the New York rock scene, led by a group of iconoclastic rock bands. In the second half of the twentieth-century New York was the source of new sounds, including the Greenwich Village folk scene, punk and new wave, and hip-hop. But as the end of the millennium neared, cutting-edge bands began emerging from Seattle, Austin, and London, pushing New York further from the epicenter. The behemoth music industry, too, found itself in free fall, under siege from technology. Then 9/11/2001 plunged the country into a state of uncertainty and war—and a dozen New York City bands that had been honing their sound and style in relative obscurity suddenly became symbols of glamour for a young, web-savvy, forward-looking generation in need of an anthem. Meet Me in the Bathroom charts the transformation of the New York music scene in the first decade of the 2000s, the bands behind it—including The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, Interpol, and Vampire Weekend—and the cultural forces that shaped it, from the Internet to a booming real estate market that forced artists out of the Lower East Side to Williamsburg. Drawing on 200 original interviews with James Murphy, Julian Casablancas, Karen O, Ezra Koenig, and many others musicians, artists, journalists, bloggers, photographers, managers, music executives, groupies, models, movie stars, and DJs who lived through this explosive time, journalist Lizzy Goodman offers a fascinating portrait of a time and a place that gave birth to a new era in modern rock-and-roll.

Selected Works of Elia Wilkinson Peattie by Elia Wilkinson Peattie Book Resume:

ONE who enters Chicago unacquainted with it, having no open sesame to its hospitable doors, knowing the city only by its streets, its hotels, and its theatres, is disturbed by an unpleasant emotion. If he comes from some well-regulated, cultivated, and placid town of the eastern part of this country, or from England or Germany, he feels shaken out of poise and peace by a tremendous discord. He sees a city ankle-deep in dirt, swathed in smoke, wild with noise, and frantic with the stress of life. He sees confusion rampant, and the fret and fume of the town rise and brood above it like hideous Afrits. But as time goes on — and even supposing the man continues to remain a stranger among the two millions of his fellow men who make up the city — he experiences a change of sentiment. He ceases to be shocked, and becomes interested. It occurs to him that if commerce is ever epic, it is so here. He feels the beat of the city like the vibration of mighty drums, and the thing he thought a discord he discovers to be the rhythm of great movements. The drab sky, the dirty streets, the dusky air, the dark-clothed figures of the people, are all in harmony, and it seems dramatically fitting that a city in the throes of its toil should wear its working clothes. It is grimy with its labor, and breathless and noisy forging its Balmung with mighty shouts. He who comes to Chicago to seek his fortune, possessing delicate traditions, having been brought up among persons of similar traditions, is confused and angered by the treatment he receives. He discovers that he must be successful if he would be noticed; that he must be in need if he would be helped. But if he makes his way in law-abiding, frugal, and lonely fashion, he will attract no attention. And first and last, in poverty and in riches, in sickness and in health, the town will roar at him; if he is afraid, it will roar twice as loud as it did before. Its furnaces and forges, its cable systems and syndicates, its slaughterhouses and wheatpits, its railroads and elevators, its greedy breadwinners and greedy millionaires, and the boats upon its filthy river will all roar. So, inevitably, at last, in a puny way, he will roar back. He will say Chicago has no peace, no leisure, no aspirations save those of a materialistic sort, no religion, no refinement. Sometimes, even after he has found he is mistaken in saying these things, he will go on saying them, because he cannot forgive Chicago for enticing him, with her commercial allurements, away from the home of his youth and the things to which he was born. He lays to her account all the pangs of homesickness which he suffers, and he misrepresents her, as it is the fate of new cities to be misrepresented.

By Broad Potomac's Shore by Kim Roberts Book Resume:

Following her successful Literary Guide to Washington, DC, which Library Journal called "the perfect accompaniment for a literature-inspired vacation in the US capital," Kim Roberts returns with a comprehensive anthology of poems by both well-known and overlooked poets working and living in the capital from the city’s founding in 1800 to 1930. Roberts expertly presents the work of 132 poets, including poems by celebrated DC writers such as Francis Scott Key, Walt Whitman, Frederick Douglass, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Ambrose Bierce, Henry Adams, and James Weldon Johnson, as well as the work of lesser-known poets—especially women, writers of color, and working-class writers. A significant number of the poems are by writers who were born enslaved, such as Fanny Jackson Coppin, T. Thomas Fortune, and John Sella Martin. The book is arranged thematically, representing the poetic work happening in our nation’s capital from its founding through the Civil War, Reconstruction, World War I, and the beginnings of literary modernism. The city has always been home to prominent poets—including presidents and congressmen, lawyers and Supreme Court judges, foreign diplomats, US poets laureate, professors, and inventors—as well as writers from across the country who came to Washington as correspondents. A broad range of voices is represented in this incomparable volume.

The Oxford Book of Children's Verse in America by Donald Hall Book Resume:

Compiled by the award-winning poet and author of children's books, Donald Hall, this delightful anthology follows in the tradition of Iona and Peter Opie's classic Oxford Book of Children's Verse. Hall brings together poems written specifically for children and also those written for anyone and enjoyed by children and adults alike. He presents over two hundred fifty poems written by over one hundred different American poets--including anonymous works, ballads, and recitation pieces--that range from the Calvinist verses of the seventeenth century to the fabulous nonsense poems of the present. Drawing on literally thousands of sources--including Sunday School magazines, Christmas annuals for children, and such wonderful children's periodicals as St. Nicholas and Youth's Companion--Hall gives the modern reader a rich sampling of many poems never before anthologized.

Revolution in the Air by Clinton Heylin Book Resume:

Bob Dylan has always regarded himself as a songwriter: 'I am my words,' he wrote in 1964. Distilling a lifetime's passion and study, leading Dylan author, Clinton Heylin charts the development and first moments of genius of this unique artist whose songs changed the world. From his first attempts at writing, Song to Bridget, in 1957, (apparently for Brigitte Bardot) Bob Dylan always aspired to poetry, yet his role as a writer rather than a performer of his own songs is often overlooked. In over fifty years of creativity he had penned some of the most iconic, and perfect, songs in popular history. Arriving in New York in 1961, the city had an enormous impact on the young artist and, as he established himself amongst the folk clubs and artists, he would produce songs that spoke for a whole generation: Blowing in the Wind, A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall, The Times They Are a Changin', Like a Rolling Stone, and Forever Young. In Revolution in the Air Clinton Heylin recounts the story of each song as it is written, giving a full appreciation of the songs themselves as well as Dylan the emerging artist. Unlike any other book on Dylan, it charts his rise as a writer, where he gained his inspiration, the burst of energy which produced some of his most famous songs as well as the lesser known stories behind the more iconic verses. This is an essential book for anyone interested in Dylan and his place in literature. Informative, opinionated, packed with new insights and revelations, this is an instant classic.

Seems Like Murder Here by Adam Gussow Book Resume:

Winner of the 2004 C. Hugh Holman Award from the Society for the Study of Southern Literature. Seems Like Murder Here offers a revealing new account of the blues tradition. Far from mere laments about lost loves and hard times, the blues emerge in this provocative study as vital responses to spectacle lynchings and the violent realities of African American life in the Jim Crow South. With brilliant interpretations of both classic songs and literary works, from the autobiographies of W. C. Handy, David Honeyboy Edwards, and B. B. King to the poetry of Langston Hughes and the novels of Zora Neale Hurston, Seems Like Murder Here will transform our understanding of the blues and its enduring power.

Bring Me a Rock! by Daniel Miyares Book Resume:

From the author-illustrator of Pardon Me! and Float comes a funny and fun picture book about a little bug who proves that even the small can be mighty. When a power-hungry grasshopper king wants a throne to loom over his bug subjects, he summons each of them to “bring me a rock!” One by one, the bugs bring him the biggest rocks they can carry, but one little bug can contribute only a very small pebble. The grasshopper king shuns the little bug. But when his throne is in danger of tipping, that little bug might be the only one who can save him. With beautiful, bold illustrations and a folk-tale sensibility, Bring Me a Rock! is a classic underdog tale with a humorous twist.

The Cowgirl Princess and Starwalker by Dianne Brown Book Resume:

Who could have known . . . . . . that this girl child, seeded in a little cabin at a Columbine resort on her mother’s honeymoon, would carry stardust in her veins from a stellar system so very far away in the universe? It would have been impossible at that time for anyone to know that in this mortal flesh walked an entity of high spiritual esteem. My mother named me Diana after the goddess of the hunt, the forest, and the beloved moon—which is merely 250 thousand miles away. Precious, precious and set aside, kept safe for these days; I was tenderly wrapped in mythology and poetry and tucked in nightly by my mother who showed me the moon and the man who lived there. This magical lady told me, her firstborn, that I was made of moonbeams and stardust. There is no doubt in my mind that I was programmed by Lorine’s love of poetry and stories. Her childlike belief in the truth of fairytales and the magic of rhyme and words strung together like precious jewels in a royal necklace was impressed into my DNA. (This caused certain dendrons to lie down and give way to those that would stand tall and carry verse and prose through my soul like a great river.) I have kept my promise to Lorine. I have written her story, The Cowgirl Princess and Starwalker, using her collection of journals and photographs and of course, I wove it all together with my own especially special collection of memories and lots and lots of stardust and tears.

Un Dieu Tout Puissant by Bee Suzuki Book Resume:

Je ne tirerais pas un sou de tout ça, si je ne me mettais pas sérieusement à écrire mon livre à propos de cette affaire. Car, que je l'écrive ou non, le scandale allait être historique. L'onde de choc allait toucher des millions de fans et les tabloïds allaient avoir du grain à moudre pour des mois et des mois... Parfois, on devrait laisser le passé là où il est. Mais pour Azahel Brun, dont la curiosité est insatiable, le passé est une zone tentante et extrêmement périlleuse. Née à New York et élevée à Los Angeles, n'ayant jamais vraiment su qui était son père, elle ignore également qu'elle détient la clé d'un incommensurable trésor. Restée seule après que sa mère Isabelle, célèbre photographe de rock stars, a trouvé la mort avec tout le groupe de Lizzie Byrne dans un accident d'avion historique, Azahel s'est détournée du monde excentrique du Rock'n'Roll et du show business dans lequel elle est née. Vivant et travaillant à présent à Paris comme correspondante de presse, elle est loin de se douter qu'elle est surveillée de très près. Un beau jour, d'étranges spams d'annonces immobilières apparaissent sur son écran. Mais en répondant à ces dangereuses sollicitations, c'est toute sa vie qui va basculer : fiancé, amis de longue date, nouvelles connaissances, tout le monde semble porter un masque. Que cherchent-ils ? Azahel, futée et légitime enfant du Rock, devra exercer tous ses talents de déduction, pour affronter ses ennemis, sauver sa peau et celle de Telly Jones, icône Rock et ami de toujours et trouver enfin les réponses à ses questions.
