Music also induces feelings in us, most especially for TV shows and films where they plan an integral role.

Sony Resistance 2 Game (Platinum)
HK$ 82.00
Nzgameshop

In the highly anticipated sequel to the best-selling Sony PlayStation 3 game, Resistance 2 is an alternate-history, first-person shooter that puts you in the heroic role of Sgt. Nathan Hale as he struggles against overwhelming odds to defend humankind from an insurmountable Chimera. Resistance 2 takes up right where Resistance Fall of Man left off. Hale is kidnapped by a black ops group in London and forced to Iceland for research testing. The full scope of what happens in Iceland is a mystery, but the game reveals that as Hale wrestles with the insidious Chimera war machine, he must also battle the virus raging inside his body that threatens to transform him into the very creature he fights against. The Return of the Chimera The Chimera are the main enemies of the Resistance franchise. For those new to the story, it is believed that the Chimera are of extraterrestrial origin. Yet, it is known that their army expands by infecting humans with a virus that transforms humans into Chimera while inside a cocoon. These creatures are much stronger than humans, and they usually have multiple yellow eyes. They have remarkable healing abilities and thrive in very cold temperatures, which has led them to alter the Earth's climate to a much lower temperature that better suits their habitat requirements. Resistance 2 introduces several new Chimeran enemies with a host of new powers. A few new characters include the Chameleon, a creature that can cloak itself completely and kill a player in one, destructive blow, and the Grim, which are a terrifying species that attack in hordes. The Battle Moves to the United States After the brief opening scenes in London and then Iceland, game play jumps ahead two years and across the globe to San Francisco. Giant, mile-long motherships slowly cruise through the skies, demolishing the city with fiery beams. The city is burned and mangled, and it appears that there will be little to no survivors. As the battle continues across the United States, you're sure to encounter many new, deranged, and much more powerful enemies. In Chicago, you'll be joined by a squad of soldiers, all carrying different weapons. To survive and move through the level, you'll need to work together, moving from cover to cover, setting up your squad in a smart and defensive manner. These are just a few examples of the challenging levels you'll encounter as you battle your way across the country to save humankind. And if you're hoping for new weapons, Resistance 2 won't leave you disappointed. The US-based campaign is loaded with tons of new weapons to enhance the overall game play and first-person shooter experience. Online game play Goes BIG Powered by Insomniac Games' third-generation PlayStation 3 technology, Resistance 2 delivers several console gaming breakthroughs. Most impressive are the stand-alone, class-based, online co-operative campaign mode that can accommodate up to eight players, and the mind-blowing, 60-player, squad-based online competitive multiplayer battle fest. This unprecedented 60-player option could revolutionize online multiplayer game play and is sure to provide countless hours of action-packed fun.

Der Generalplan Ost - Nationalsozialistische Pläne zur Kolonisation Ostmitteleuropas
HK$ 96.00 HK$ 101.00
Kobo

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - Nationalsozialismus, II. Weltkrieg, Note: 1,0, Universität Vechta; früher Hochschule Vechta (Institut für Geschichte und historische Landesforschung), Veranstaltung: Bombenkrieg und Vertreibung - Über den Umgang mit zwei umstrittenen Themen in Forschung, Öffentlichkeit und Schule, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Hausarbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem sogenannten Generalplan Ost. Im ersten Zugriff kann man den Generalplan Ost als Gesamtkonzeption der Germanisierungspolitik im Dritten Reich zwischen Oder und Ural definieren. Konkret handelt es sich jedoch um eine Vielzahl von spezifischen Plänen, die unter dem Dach der SS, der Schutzstaffel der Nsdap, zwischen 1940 und 1943 unter dem Namen Generalplan Ost entstanden sind. Alle diese Pläne fügen sich in die drei von Heinrich Himmler, ab 1929 Reichsführer SS, ausgegebenen Endziele nationalsozialistischer Politik ein. Erstens das Verschieben der deutschen Ostgrenze soweit wie möglich nach Osten, zweitens das Eingliedern germanischer Völker, in erster Linie Norweger, Dänen, Flamen und Niederländer, in den neuen deutschen Staat und drittens dann die Neuordnung des germanischen Weltreiches. Daraus ableiten kann man eine völkisch-nationale Siedlungs- und Bodenpolitik, die bereits zum Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts virulent war. Gründe dafür sind zum einen das Fehlen von naturgegebenen Volksgrenzen (z.B. zwischen deutschem und polnischem Territorium) oder auch von stabilen Staatsgrenzen und zum anderen daraus resultierend die ethnische Mischzone Ostmitteleuropas. Auf dieser Siedlungs- und Bodenpolitik entwickelte sich nun eine Ideologie, die Esch als Vermischung sozialdarwinistischer und ökonomischer Tendenzen charakterisiert.

Timpani Tone and the Interpretation of Baroque and Classical Music
HK$ 131.00 HK$ 137.00
Kobo

Timpani Tone and the Interpretation of Baroque and Classical Music explores the nature, production, and evolution of timpani tone and provides insights into how to interpret the music of J.s. Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart. In drawing on 31 years of experience, Steven L. Schweizer focuses on the components of timpani tone and methods for producing it. In so doing, he discusses the importance of timpani bowl type; mallets; playing style; physical gestures; choice of drums; mallet grip; legato, marcato, and staccato strokes; playing different parts of the timpano head; and psychological openness to the music in effectively shaping and coloring timpani parts. In an acclaimed chapter on interpretation, Schweizer explores how timpanists can use knowledge of the composer's style, psychology, and musical intentions; phrasing and articulation; the musical score; and a conductor's gestures to effectively and convincingly play a part with emotional dynamism and power. The greater part of the book is devoted to the interpretation of Baroque and Classical orchestral and choral music. Meticulously drawing on original sources and authoritative scores from the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, Schweizer convincingly demonstrates that timpanists were capable of producing a broader range of timpani tone earlier than is normally supposed. The increase in timpani size, covered timpani mallets, and thinner timpani heads increased the quality of timpani tone; therefore, today's timpanist's need not be entirely concerned with playing with very articulate sticks. In exhaustive sections on Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart, Schweizer takes the reader on an odyssey through the interpretation of their symphonic and choral music. Relying on Baroque and Classical performance practices, timpani notation, the composer's musical style, and definitive scores, he interprets timpani parts from major works of these composers. Schweizer pays particular attention to timpani tone, articulation,

A History of American Classical Music
HK$ 86.00
Kobo

To many people, the term 'American classical music' means a handful of famous names: Gershwin, Copland, Bernstein, Sousa. But this doesnt begin to scrape the surface of a musical heritage reaching back to colonial times. For instance, did you know that George Washington loved dance music, and that Abraham Lincolns favorite song was Listen to the Mocking-Bird by the American composer Septimus Winner? Americas legacy of concert music contains extraordinary riches, much of it unfamiliar even to sophisticated music lovers. This entertaining, fact-filled History of American Classical Music celebrates that legacy by investigating the greatest composers familiar and unfamiliar: American Romantics like William Henry Fry, Louis Moreau Gottschalk and Edward MacDowell; visionary modernists like Charles Ives, Morton Feldman and John Cage; buoyant spirits like Victor Herbert and Scott Joplin; as well as figures at todays cutting edge like John Adams, Philip Glass, Michael Torke and Carter Pann.

West Virginia's Traditional Country Music
HK$ 112.00
Kobo

West Virginia has been known for a century as a rich repository of traditional country music and musicians. Beginning in the mid-1920s, phonograph recordings and radios brought this music to a wider audience. With the passing of time and the influence of commercialization, this music developed into what became first known as "hillbilly" and then into the more refined "country" because of its long appeal to those of rural background. Although modernization has caused the traditional element to recede considerably, much still remains. Many folk still cling to the older sounds exemplified by the "raw" traditionalists and the neo-traditional bluegrass style that emerged in the 1940s. From the earliest recording artists, such as the Tweedy Brothers and David Miller, who was blind, to contemporary stars like Kathy Mattea and Brad Paisley, West Virginians and others have held their musicians in high esteem.

Christa Wolfs 'Kein Ort. Nirgends' im Kreuzfeuer der Literaturkritik von Ost und West
HK$ 176.00 HK$ 185.00
Kobo

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,0, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris III (Institut d Allemand d Asnieres), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Arbeit werden die Rezensionen von Kein Ort. Nirgends in zwei politisch entgegengesetzt ausgerichteten Systemen, dem der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und dem der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik, untersucht. Beim Vergleich der Rezensionen in beiden deutschen Staaten soll es vor allem darauf ankommen, festzustellen, wo von den Rezensenten unterschiedliche Schwerpunkte gesetzt wurden, inwieweit die Kritiker zu unterschiedlichen Werturteilen kamen und wie sie dies begründeten. Um jedoch die bloBe Gegenüberstellung der kritischen Reaktionen in beiden Ländern zu vermeiden, wurde hier eine thematisch herangehende Arbeitsweise gewählt. Es wurden vier Themen ausgewählt, denen jeweils ein Kapitel dieser Arbeit gewidmet ist. Im ersten Teil der Arbeit wird auf die Stellung des Künstlers in der Gesellschaft eingegangen. In diesem Rahmen wird zuerst die Biermann-Affäre und deren Folgen auf die kulturpolitische Situation in der DDR zur Zeit der Veröffentlichung dargestellt. Der darauf folgende Teil der Arbeit geht auf das Verständnis des 'Kulturerbes' in der DDR und auf die besondere Stellung der Romantik innerhalb dieses Erbes ein. Weiterführend wird im dritten Teil auf die Eigenschaften des 'sozialistischen Realismus' eingegangen, der die von offizieller Seite vorgegebene Methode für den sozialistischen Schriftsteller war. Im letzten Teil der Arbeit wird dargestellt, wie Christa Wolf in Kein Ort. Nirgends an die noch zu überwindende Diskrepanz zwischen der Realität der DDR-Gesellschaft und den sozialistischen Idealen erinnert.

Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest
HK$ 74.00
Nzgameshop

With a bold, confident voice that commanded listeners to take notice and a body of work boasting some of the most upbeat and romantic recordings of the past three decades, Whitney Houston (1963-2012) has long solidified her place as one of the 20th century's most significant performers. But her ability to stun live audiences with her powerful vocal gifts has never been documented on an official release - until now. Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances will capture decades of live recordings and unforgettable memories of a true music legend. From the moment Clive Davis introduced a 19-year-old Houston on The Merv Griffin Show, audiences knew this was more than your average talented voice. ‘Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances’ includes that seminal performance, plus others from three decades of stellar live appearances, from talk-shows (The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Oprah Winfrey Show) to awards ceremonies like the American Music Awards - and all the extra-special performances in between including 1994's Concert For A New South Africa. This CD package will, for the first time, illuminate a brilliant career as seen under dozens of stage lights and remind audiences of Whitney's truly original voice - often imitated but certainly never surpassed. ‘Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances – Ultimate Edition’ combines the live album with ‘The Ultimate Collection’; an 18-track collection of Whitney Houston studio hits, housing the 2 CDs together in a card slip case.

Country Music
HK$ 26.00
Kobo

C.w. Smith's award-winning first novel, Thin Men of Haddam, established him as a novelist of power and compassion, and Country Music offers up a shrewd anatomy of sexual and social stances that extends the range and depth of his vision. Country Music opens when Bobby Joe Gilbert, Hedorville's Bane to Virgins and Most Unlikely to Succeed, confronts an unwelcome question: "What are you going to do with yourself?" Desperate to escape his reputation and the limitations of his world, he makes a stab at college, but the effort dissipates in endless games of pinball and a stormy friendship with Polly, a lesbian pinball addict who resists his sexual advances and penetrates his psychic defenses. He weds Ginger, a gorgeous blonde who epitomizes his macho notions of womanhood, but the marriage is doomed by her childishness and his inability to cope with the intricacies of love and sharing. Warily, he returns to Hedorville and to the same-old, same-old crowd - and also to his responsibility for the death of a girl who trusted him, the ugly secret he must face before turning to the future. The women in Bobby Joe's life - Pinball Polly, his wife Ginger, and Nelda Sue, the girl he keeps leaving and keeps coming back to - are deftly created women. They and a host of others bring a world to life, while its creator rings changes on themes of sex, destiny, escape, and the complexity of human entanglements. This new ebook edition also includes an essay by the author about working in Hollywood on the film adaptation. "Smith's portrait of a troubled young man searching for himself he knows not where… is alive, funny, sad, and as real as it can be. Bobby Joe's thrashing around about himself and the way things are is country music in a new key." - Publisher's Weekly.

'Geweldige biografie. De totale Cash.' Matthijs van Nieuwkerk in Dwdd In de veelgeprezen en complete biografie van Johnny Cash vertelt Robert Hilburn het onverbloemde verhaal van een van de grootste sterren van de rock-'n-roll. De veelbewogen carrière van Cash startte bij Sun Records, met Elvis Presley en Jerry Lee Lewis, en eindigde in 2003 met de dappere, ontroerende video 'Hurt', het laatste muzikale hoogtepunt van de dan 71-jarige Cash. Een leven vol successen, mijlpalen, prijzen, maar ook een leven met grote teleurstellingen, drugs, tegenslagen en verdriet. 'In een evenwichtige biografie komen alle kanten van de countryzanger Johnny Cash aan bod. Schrijver Robert Hilburn haalt wat mythes onderuit, zonder dat het grote verhaal van diens volle leven eronder lijdt. Hij schrijft met afstand, maar vanuit liefde.' Jan Donkers' keus voor boek van het jaar in NRC Handelsblad 'Johnny Cash is een geslaagde biografie. […] Hilburn vertelt het verhaal van Johnny Cash in een heel directe vorm. Steeds op de huid van de hoofdpersoon; en vaak ook "in diens hoofd": door te vertellen wat Johnny zelf dacht en voelde. Door deze aanpak verveelt het boek geen moment.' de Volkskrant 'Hilburn heeft een briljant verhaal geschreven over een nog briljantere songwriter met al z'n gebreken.' Keith Richards Robert Hilburn was meer dan drie decennia hoofd muziekcriticus en redacteur popmuziek voor de Los Angeles Times. Hij heeft eerder een boek over John Lennon gepubliceerd en schrijft al zijn hele leven over poplegendes, zoals Bob Dylan, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, U2 en Johnny Cash. Hilburn werkt op dit moment aan de biografie van Paul Simon die ook bij Spectrum zal verschijnen.

Dolly Parton, Gender, and Country Music
HK$ 166.00 HK$ 174.00
Kobo

Dolly Parton is instantly recognizable for her iconic style and persona, but how did she create her enduring image? Dolly crafted her exaggerated appearance and stage personality by combining two opposing stereotypes-the innocent mountain girl and the voluptuous sex symbol. Emerging through her lyrics, personal stories, stage presence, and visual imagery, these wildly different gender tropes form a central part of Dolly's media image and portrayal of herself as a star and celebrity. By developing a multilayered image and persona, Dolly both critiques representations of femininity in country music and attracts a diverse fan base ranging from country and pop music fans to feminists and gay rights advocates. In Dolly Parton, Gender, and Country Music, Leigh H. Edwards explores Dolly's roles as musician, actor, author, philanthropist, and entrepreneur to show how Dolly's gender subversion highlights the challenges that can be found even in the most seemingly traditional form of American popular music. As Dolly depicts herself as simultaneously "real" and "fake," she offers new perspectives on country music's claims of authenticity.

Kenny Rogers Biography: Legendary Country Music Star
HK$ 39.00
Kobo

Mainstream SuccessIn 1974, Rogers left the group to go solo again. He chose to focus his energy on nation songs and "Love Lifted Me" became his first solo top 20 country hit in 1975. 2 years later on, Rogers reached the top of the nation charts with the mournful ballad "Lucille," about a man being left by his spouse. The track additionally did well on the pop charts, making it into the leading 5. It also delivered Rogers his first Grammy Award- this time for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. Quickly following up this success, Rogers released The Gambler in 1978. The title track came to be another massive nation and pop hit and provided Rogers his second Grammy Award. He also showed his tender side on the recording with the prominent ballad "She Believes in Me." Kenny (1979) featured such favorites as "Coward of the County" and "You Decorated My Life." Around this time, he wrote the guidance book Making It With Music: Kenny Rogers' Guide to the Music Business (1978).In addition to his solo work, Rogers tape-recorded a series of favorites with nation legend Dottie West. The two reached the top of the nation charts with "Every Time Two Fools Collide" (1978), "All I Ever Need Is You" (1979) and "What Are We Doin' In Love" (1981). Also in 1981, Rogers held the No. 1 spot on the pop charts for six weeks with his version of Lionel Richie's "Lady."By this time, Rogers was a true crossover artist, appreciating huge success on both the country and pop charts. He collaborated with such pop stars as Kim Carnes and Sheena Easton. Resorting to acting, Rogers starred in many television motion pictures encouraged by his tunes, consisting of 1980's The Gambler, which generated a number of part twos, and 1981's Coward of the County. On the big display, he played a race car driver in the comedy Six Pack (1982).In 1983, Rogers scored one of his biggest hits: a duet with Dolly Parton called "Islands in the Stream." Created by the Bee Gees, the tune went to the top of both the country

Classical Music Criticism
HK$ 371.00 HK$ 411.00
Kobo

The first new survey of the field in more than 60 years, this study concentrates on the basics of music criticism. Because it focuses on core issues and proven principles, the book is likely to become the standard work on the subject. It is written for the audience that reads music criticism in newspapers and popular journals: professional and amateur musicians, scholars, teachers, researchers, librarians, students, music lovers, journalists, and critics. The topics are covered in depth and observations are thoroughly documented, yet the material is enjoyable to read because the writing is easy to understand and special terminology is held to an absolute minimum. The commentary addresses the function of music criticism, the qualifications and training of a critic, the relationship between music criticism and other aspects of journalism, and the principles behind value judgments. Three chapters are devoted to the concert and opera review, one to reviewing recordings, another to radio and television criticism, and one to reviewing ethnic music. Thirty-eight reviews are quoted and analyzed, and 13 are presented in their entirety, along with critical commentary. Index. Appendix. Bibliography

The Scotch-Irish Influence on Country Music in the Carolinas: Border Ballads, Fiddle Tunes and Sacred Songs
HK$ 112.00
Kobo

Country music in the Carolinas and the southern Appalachian Mountains owes a tremendous debt to freedom-loving Scotch-Irish pioneers who settled the southern backcountry during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. These hardy Protestant settlers brought with them from Lowland Scotland, Northern England and the Ulster Province of Ireland music that created the essential framework for "old-time string band music." From the cabins of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains to the textile mills and urban centers of the Carolina foothills, this colorful, passionate, heartfelt music transformed the culture of America and the world and laid the foundation for western swing, bluegrass, rockabilly and modern country music. Author Michael Scoggins takes a trip to the roots of country music in the Carolinas.

Johnny Cash FAQ
HK$ 189.00 HK$ 236.00
Kobo

(Faq). Johnny Cash remains one of the most recognizable artists in the world. Starting in 1956, he released an album every year until his death in 2003. In addition to these albums, there were also some posthumous releases in the years after his death. From rockabilly to country, folk to comedy, gospel to classical, the prolific Cash touched them all. His hit singles crossed over from country to pop, as he transcended genres and became a superstar around the globe. Cash skyrocketed from the beginning, flying through the '60s until he was one of the country's biggest stars by the end of the decade. Following his own muse through the '70s, Cash slowly faded commercially until he nearly disappeared in the '80s. Instead of giving up, he made an incredible late-career run in the '90s that took him into the new millennium, along the way collaborating with various contemporary rock and pop artists. His offstage problems often overshadowed the music, and his addiction often takes center stage in the story, pushing the music off the page. But Johnny Cash FAQ celebrates the musical genius of Cash and takes a look at every album Cash released, the stories behind the hits, and how he sustained a fantastic nearly 50-year career.

Hussiten am historischen Horizont. Deutsche Forschungs- und Deutungsansätze in Ost und West (1949-1989)
HK$ 96.00 HK$ 101.00
Kobo

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Länder - Mittelalter, Frühe Neuzeit, Note: 1,3, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Studienbrief 'Die Gegenwart Alteuropas: Antike, Mittelalter und Frühe Neuzeit im historischen Horizont der Nachkriegszeit' stellt die unterschiedlichen Entwicklungen der Geschichtswissenschaft in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik dar. In dieser Hausarbeit sollen diese Entwicklungen am Beispiel der Hussitenkriege untersucht werden. Es geht dabei nicht um die Ereignisse selbst, sondern - wie es im Studienbrief zum Begriff des 'historischen Horizontes' heiBt - darum, welches Bild von den Ereignissen die Historiker jeweils entwerfen und an die Gesellschaft zur Ausbildung ihres Horizontes weitergeben. Das Thema der Hussitenkriege wurde gewählt, weil das Hussitentum 'eine Mischung von religiösen, nationalen und socialpolitischen Ideen' ist und daher sehr unterschiedliche Interpretations- und Einordnungsmöglichkeiten bietet. Welche dieser Möglichkeiten von den Historikern in Ost und West jeweils gewählt wurden, bzw. welcher Ton im genannten 'Dreiklang' jeweils hervortritt, soll anhand folgender Detailfrage herausgearbeitet werden: Welche Ziele und Motive werden den Hussiten als Kriegspartei in der jeweiligen Darstellung zugeordnet? Oder, anders gefragt: Kämpfen die Hussiten in der jeweiligen Darstellung primär - als Sozialrevolutionäre - als tschechische Nationalisten oder - als Aktivisten einer religiösen Erneuerungsbewegung? Gerhard Schmidt (geb. 1972) studierte zunächst Betriebswirtschaft, wandte sich aber nach einer 17-jährigen Berufstätigkeit in der Versicherungsbranche den Kulturwissenschaften (Geschichte und Literatur) zu. Nach seinem Bachelor-Abschluss an der Fernuniversität in Hagen (2017) setzt er dort seine Studien in einem Master-Studiengang Geschichte fort. Er ist verheiratet und Vater von zwei Söhnen.

Kuba zwischen Ost und West - Zur Notwendigkeit der Annäherung Kubas an die Sowjetunion in den Jahren 1959 bis 1961
HK$ 96.00 HK$ 101.00
Kobo

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - Nachkriegszeit, Kalter Krieg, Note: 1,3, Universität Bielefeld (Fakultät für Geschichtswissenschaften, Philosophie und Theologie), Veranstaltung: Revolutionen in Lateinamerika, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In den Jahren von 1959 bis 1961 lässt sich eine Annäherung zwischen Kuba und der Sowjetunion und eine damit einhergehende Verschlechterung der kubanisch-amerikanischen Beziehung erkennen. Diese Entwicklung muss im Zusammenhang mit dem Kalten Krieg gesehen werden und wirft Fragen zur kubanischen Rolle im Ost-West-Konflikt auf: War für die Weiterführung der kubanischen Revolution ein Anschluss an die Sowjetunion notwendig? Wie kam es zu einer Annäherung? War Kuba Spielball der beiden Blockstaaten oder NutznieBer des Konflikts? Zur Beantwortung dieser Fragen soll zunächst die Entwicklung der Beziehung Kubas zu den Vereinigten Staaten aufgezeigt werden. Danach erfolgt die Betrachtung des Verhältnisses zur Sowjetunion. In beiden Fällen liegt der Fokus auf der Herausarbeitung des politisch-ideologischen und wirtschaftlichen Verhältnisses, da an diesen Themenfeldern eine Annäherung festgemacht werden kann. Den zeitlichen Rahmen der Analyse bilden zum einen der Sieg der Revolution vom 1. Januar 1959, zum anderen die Bekennung Castros zum Marxismus-Leninismus im Dezember 1961, da damit die Annäherungsphase als abgeschlossen betrachtet werden kann.

HK$ 97.00 HK$ 120.00

The Resurrection Of Johnny Cash tells the story of one of the most remarkable comebacks in music history. At the start of the 90s, Cash was battered and bruised. In constant pain through heart problems, broken bones, and the aftermath of a second bout of drug addiction, he had seen his glorious career fade into irrelevance. Then something extraordinary happened: a new generation of musicians and fans, headed by hip-hop and metal producer Rick Rubin, rediscovered him and brought him back to his rightful place as a legend of American music. This insightful and stylish book is built around new interviews with family, friends, and collaborators, including Rosanne Cash, Adam Clayton of U2, Will Oldham, and Nick Lowe. Ranging over six decades, it charts Cash's loss of direction, his struggles with illness and drugs, and his astonishing return to form, fame, and critical acclaim in the last years of his life.

Country Music
HK$ 95.00 HK$ 118.00
Kobo

Co-winner of the 1983 National Book Award for Poetry, Country Music is comprised of eighty-eight poems selected from Charles Wright's first four books published between 1970 and 1977. From his first book, The Grave of the Right Hand, to the extraordinary China Trace, this selection of early works represents "Charles Wright's grand passions: his desire to reclaim and redeem a personal past, to make a reckoning with his present, and to conjure the terms by which we might face the future," writes David St. John in the forward. These poems, powerful and moving in their own right, lend richness and insight to Wright's recently collected later works. "In Country Music we see the same explosive imagery, the same dismantled and concentric (or parallel) narratives, the same resolutely spiritual concerns that have become so familiar to us in Wright's more recent poetry," writes St. John.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 2,0, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (Germanistische Literaturwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Moderne Lyrik 1945-1990, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Einleitung Die Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland ist wohl in ihrem Verlauf einzigartig. Nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges 1945 wurde Deutschland von den Siegermächten in zwei Hälften geteilt und jedes Gebiet unterlag einem anderen politischen System. Während in Westdeutschland die Usa, GroBbritannien und Frankreich Politik und Wirtschaft beeinflussten, unterstand Ostdeutschland der Sowjetunion. Das Resultat waren zwei deutsche Staaten, die 1961 durch eine Mauer getrennt wurden. Die folgenden politischen Entwicklungen hatten groBen Einfluss auf alle Bereiche der Gesellschaft, vor allem auch auf die Kunst und Kultur der Menschen. Als persönlichste Form der literarischen Rede gilt Lyrik, in der das 'Ich' seinen Standpunkt zur Welt darstellen kann. So unterschiedlich sich beide Teile Deutschlands wirtschaftlich und politisch entwickelten, so verschieden waren die Gedichte, die in Ost- und Westdeutschland von 1945 bis zur Wiedervereinigung 1990 erschienen. Eines jedoch ist ihnen gemeinsam: Dichter galten als kritische Beobachter der Gesellschaft und hatten durch ihre Lyrik die Möglichkeit Missstände öffentlich anzuprangern und zu aktuellen Ereignissen persönlich Stellung zu nehmen. Welche Wirkung ein Gedicht dabei haben kann, erklärt Enzensberger folgendermaBen: 'Das Gedicht ist, in den Augen der Herrschaft (.), anarchisch; unverträglich, weil sie darüber nicht verfügen kann; durch sein bloBes Dasein subversiv. Es überführt, solange es nur anwesend ist, Regierungserklärung und Reklameschrei, Manifest und Transparent der Lüge' 1. Im Zuge des sozialen Wandels nutzten die Autoren ihre Chance mittels ihrer Gedichte Kritik an Staat und Bürgern üben zu können. Frühe politische Gedichte sin

Make A Sound Investment IN Classical MUSICWho are the ten most important classical composers? Who in the world was Palestrina? Why did Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" cause a riot? Which five of each important composer's works should you buy? What is a concerto and how does it differ from a sonata?Maybe you don't know the answers to these questions; author Phil Goulding certainly didn't. When Goulding first tried to learn about classical music, he found himself buried in an avalanche of technical terms and complicated jargon-so he decided to write the book he couldn't find. The result is a complete classical music education in one volume. Comprehensive, discriminating, and delightfully irreverent, Classical Music provides such essential information as:* Rankings of the top 50 composers (Bach is #1. Borodin is #50)* A detailed and anecdotal look at each composer's life and work* The five primary works of each composer and specific recommended CDs for each* Further great works of each composer-if you really like him* Concise explanations of musical terminology, forms, and periods* A guide to the parts and history of the symphony orchestra"This book uses every conceivable gimmick to immerse readers in the richness of classical music: lists, rankings, sidebars devoted to lively anecdotes, and catchy leads."-The Washington Post"One terrific music appreciation book. The information is surprisingly detailed but concisely presented. Goulding's writing style is breezy yet mature.[He] has raised music appreciation from a racket to a service."-The Arizona Daily StarFrom the Trade Paperback edition.

Die Entwicklung des 'Generalplans Ost'

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - Deutschland - Nationalsozialismus, II. Weltkrieg, Note: 1,3, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (Neuere und Neueste Geschichte), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar, 22 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Einleitung Bereits während des Ersten Weltkriegs formierte sich, basierend auf gesellschaftlichen Denkstrukturen wie dem Sozialdarwinismus, die Auffassung, 'Deutschland könne neben den konkurrierenden Weltmächten Usa, England und Russland nur durch Erweiterung seines Siedlungs- und Wirtschaftsraumes bestehen'. Darauf aufbauend zählten vor allem 'Lebensraum' und 'Autarkie' zu den Schlüsselbegriffen der nationalsozialistischen Ideologie, wobei die Bedeutung und Qualität dieser Begrifflichkeiten vor dem Hintergrund der rassenpolitisch und sozialdarwinistisch geprägten Weltanschauung des Nationalsozialismus und der damaligen Gesellschaft zu beurteilen sind. Die nationalsozialistische Politik zielte dementsprechend auf ein wirtschaftlich autarkes und militärisch unbesiegbares GroBreich, das den europäischen Kontinent beherrschen und der deutschen 'Herrenrasse' neuen 'Lebensraum im Osten' bieten sollte. In diesem Zusammenhang bildete nun der 'Generalplan Ost' eine Brücke zwischen rassenideologischer Programmatik, imperialistischen Interessen und wissenschaftlicher Expertise, da er sich mit den nationalsozialistischen Planungen für die Länder Osteuropas nach dem angenommenen Sieg im Zweiten Weltkrieg befasst. Der Begriff 'Generalplan Ost' ist jedoch keinesfalls eine eindeutige Bezeichnung, sondern umfasst verschiedene Planungsstufen und Varianten der Ostraumplanung. Insgesamt beschreibt der Generalplan Ost 'die mittelfristige nationalsozialistische Kriegszielpolitik und die Utopie einer rassischen 'Neuordnung' Europas mit dem Ausgangspunkt der ländlichen Siedlung.' Alle Entwürfe des 'Generalplans Ost' zeichnen sich jedoch dadurch aus, dass sie die geographische Ausdehnung sowie die

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and.

Des Weiteren sollten seine Voraussetzungen für seine Diplomatenkarriere betrachtet werden. Davon ausgehend konnten die hervorzuhebenden und notwendigen Merkmale eines erfolgreichen Diplomaten zwischen West und Ost zu jener Zeit erklärt werden. Im Besonderen sollte die Bedeutung des Merkmals Erfahrung betrachtet werden. Die Merkmale und Fähigkeiten, die Liudprand von Cremona mitbrachte bzw. sich im Laufe des Lebens aneignete, sorgten dafür, dass er wohl als einer der gefragtesten Gesandten des 10. Jahrhunderts zwischen West und Ost bezeichnet werden konnte. Natürlich musste dazu bemerkt werden, dass die Quellenlage und das Wissen über weitere Gesandtschaften zu jener Zeit eher rar gesät waren. Liudprands Leben selbst konnte durch seine eigenen, durchaus subjektiven Schriften, gut rekonstruiert werden.

Who Needs Classical Music?
HK$ 115.00 HK$ 120.00
Kobo

During the last few decades, most cultural critics have come to agree that the division between "high" and "low" art is an artificial one, that Beethoven's Ninth and "Blue Suede Shoes" are equally valuable as cultural texts. In Who Needs Classical Music? Julian Johnson challenges these assumptions about the relativism of cultural judgements. The author maintains that music is more than just "a matter of taste": while some music provides entertainment, or serves as background noise, other music claims to function as art. This book considers the value of classical music in contemporary society, arguing that it remains distinctive because it works in quite different ways to most of the other music that surrounds us. This intellectually sophisticated yet accessible book offers a new and balanced defense of the specific values of classical music in contemporary culture. Who Needs Classical Music? will stimulate readers to reflect on their own investment (or lack of it) in music and art of all kinds.

The World of Music

Where would the world be without music? It would still be around, but it would be rather empty and dull. Music is more than just a bunch of sounds put together for us to listen to; music is an art form that expresses many things in our lives in a beautiful manner. Music expresses emotions and paints pictures that our eyes can never see. Not only does music express emotions however, it can also induce it – painting a feeling that we can relate with, as seen in movies. Fight scenes are often accompanied by loud exciting music, whereas horror scenes after often accompanied by high pitched whines that cause anxiety.

Music Genres and Types

There are many different types of music and genres, each one with its own unique signature tones and features that differentiate it from others. Everyone has a difference preference for different types of music, but thankfully there are many genres and subgenres today that offers everyone more choices on their choice of music.

Pop music

Pop music is the most common form of music today and is heard almost everywhere you go. Grocery stores play it, malls play it, and most radio stations practically live by playing pop music everywhere. Pop music basically represents most modern and contemporary music today and has a very obvious and prominent rhythmic beat to the song. Famous pop singers today include Charlie Puth, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Adele.

R&B music

R&B music stands for rhythm and blues. It is a genre of music that was mainly sung and played by African-Americans in the past. It has a very steady and insistent beat throughout all of the songs, making you give in to its toe-tapping rhythm and get into the groove – as they put it. The R&B genre has its roots in the blues and jazz genres, which was then very synonymous with the African-American society in the past. Similarly to blues, R&B lyrics usually tell of a sad tale, a style which originated from the African-American's painful experience of the past. Famous R&B singers today are Mary J. Blige, Usher, and Rihana – among others.

Folk music

Folk music are also known as traditional music. Folk music are commonly older traditional music that stems from older societies and communities. Melodies in folk music are simpler and less complex, but carry very strong impressions. Folk music is not commonly listened to as much today as it were in the past of our elders, but nonetheless hold a strong impression on many people. There are no notable singers of folk music today, but almost every artist at home point has had a time where they sang a folk song to show their respects.

Classical music

Classical music are those written in the 1700s to the late 1800s. These are usually played with an abundance of string instruments either as a quartet or in a full orchestra. Most classical music are fully instrumental in a full orchestra that comprises of many different families of instruments such as the strings, the brass, the woodwind, and the percussion. All of the instruments work together to form many different forms of classical music. Notable classical musicians and composers are Mozart, Beethoven, Handel, and Bach.
