Book Summary:

Words uttered at a concert by singer Natalie Maines, resulted in the Dixie Chicks' being banned from radio stations, having masses of ex-fans demolish their CD's, and even threats to their lives. What was said to cause such a heated reaction? "Just so you know, we're ashamed that President Bush is from Texas." Due to this expression, the Chicks-stars of country music- were called traitors to their Country and their country music roots. The author uses this case to uncover the role that popular culture icons play in our selfempowerment. That is, how do messages delivered through popular culture constrain or enable our perceived ability to resist dominant ideals? Dr. Kristi L. Scholten uses a narrative approach to examine: a) citizen-generated commentary, b) popular news reports, c) the Chicks' own responses, and d) fan's expectations for their celebrated artists. This allowed her to get a sense for how the dominant, public narrative puts the pieces of the story together in order to create a vision of the world and how people should behave in it. The result is: a) the championing of an aggressive, very male patriot, b) the connection between a rough, redneck character and Middle-American values, and c) a 'shut up and sing' attitude which diminishes the agency of celebrityartists. This book is directed towards Rhetorical, Narrative, Popular Culture and Art Scholars as well as Political and Media Analysts.

Book Summary:

The second book in the internationally bestselling fantasy series, Day Watch begins where Night Watch left off, set in a modern-day Moscow where the 1,000-year-old treaty between Light and Dark maintains its uneasy balance through careful vigilance from the Others. The forces of darkness keep an eye during the day, the Day Watch, while the agents of Light monitor the nighttime. Very senior Others called the Inquisitors are the impartial judges insisting on the essential compact. When a very potent artifact is stolen from them, the consequences are dire and drastic for all sides.Day Watch introduces the perspective of the Dark Ones, as it is told in part by a young witch who bolsters her evil power by leeching fear from children's nightmares as a counselor at a girls' summer camp. When she falls in love with a handsome young Light One, the balance is threatened and a death must be avenged. Day Watch is replete with the thrilling action and intricate plotting of the first tale, fuelled by cunning, cruelty, violence, and magic. It is a fast paced, darkly humorous, haunting world that will take root in the shadows of your mind and live there forever.

Book Summary:

A musical tale of collegiate a cappella filled of high notes, high drama, and high jinks that inspired the hit films Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. Get ready to be pitch slapped. The roots of unaccompanied vocal music stretch all the way back to Gregorian chants of the Middle Ages, and collegiate a cappella is over a century old. But what was once largely an Ivy League phenomenon has, in the past twenty years, exploded. And it’s not what you think. Though the blue blazers and khakis may remain, a cappella groups at colleges across the country have become downright funky. In Pitch Perfect, journalist Mickey Rapkin follows a season in a cappella through all its twists and turns, covering the breathtaking displays of vocal talent, the groupies (yes, there are a cappella groupies), the rock-star partying, and all the bitter rivalries. Rapkin brings you into the world of collegiate a cappella characters—from movie-star looks and celebrity-size egos to a troubled new singer with the megawatt voice. Including encounters with a cappella alums like John Legend and Diane Sawyer and fans from Prince to presidents, Rapkin shows that a cappella isn’t for the faint of heart—or lungs. Sure to strike a chord with fans of Glee and The Sing-Off, this raucous story of a cappella rock stars shows that sometimes, to get that perfect harmony, you have to embrace a little discord. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Book Summary:

If the people killed or starved to death by the Soviets were laid out end to end they would stretch half way to the moon. This compelling novel of life in the Soviet Union tells an upfront and personal story of a family who lived through the birth, life and death of perhaps the worst monster state ever to exist on earth. We shudder through the social upheavals of the 1920s, the terror of the 30s and the horror of WWII. We catch the mood of enthusiasm at first for Khrushchev and the bitter disappointment that came soon after as his economic policies failed. We discover that the smiling Khrushchev turned out to be one of the worst persecutors of the Church in history. Then we take an emotional roller-coaster ride through the years of Brezhnev, Andropov and the other old men. At last we meet Mikhail Gorbachev whose new thinking rapidly becomes old thinking. At last the Soviet Union dies -- or does it? The Kuladze family story is also a remarkable and tender love story in a world where life and death could hinge on intonation, nuance or thinking unapproved thoughts. It is a world in which Christening a baby must be done in total secrecy, yet millions do it anyway. The reader will never be the same after reading this absorbing and thoughtful book.
