    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 19.99

    The birth of rock 'n roll ignited a firestorm of controversy--one critic called it "musical riots put to a switchblade beat"--but if it generated much sound and fury, what, if anything, did it signify?. As Glenn Altschuler reveals in All Shook Up, the rise of rock 'n roll--and the outraged reception to it--in fact can tell us a lot... more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 109.95

    The similarities between the chanson française and the canzone d'autore have been often noted but never fully explored.

  • Focus: Music, Nationalism, and the Making of the New Europeby Philip V. Bohlman

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 61.95

    Two decades after the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and one decade into the twenty-first century, European music remains one of the most powerful forces for shaping nationalism.

  • The Music of Counterculture Cinemaby Mathew J. Bartkowiak; Yuya Kiuchi

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 40.00

    Films produced in late 1960s and early 1970s America--along with later films focusing on that period--continue to frame our understanding of the counterculture era.

  • Meaning and Interpretation of Music in Cinemaby David P. Neumeyer

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 35.99

    By exploring the relationship between music and the moving image in film narrative, David Neumeyer shows that film music is not conceptually separate from sound or dialogue, but that all three are manipulated and continually interact in the larger acoustical world of the sound track. In a medium in which the image has traditionally trumped sound,... more...
