    String players face a bewildering array of terms related to their instruments.

  • All Shook Upby Glenn C. Altschuler

    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?.

  • Red Rockby Jonathan Campbell

    Earnshaw Books 2011; US$ 14.99

    Rebellious, individualistic, and explosive, rock and roll seems incongruent with modern Chinese society. However, as the music has evolved from a Western import into something uniquely Chinese, it has been shaped by the nation?s unique system and its relationship with the outside world. As it tracks the music's long journey from the Mao years to... more...

  • Lucy in the Mind of Lennonby Tim Kasser

    Oxford University Press, USA 2013; US$ 16.99

    Since John Lennon composed Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds in early 1967, fans and music critics alike have argued over the meaning of the song. Is it about drugs?

Professor Tim Kasser goes beyond speculative explanations by applying innovative... more...
