Jazz is a music born in the United States and formed by a combination of influences. In its infancy, jazz was a melting pot of military brass bands, work songs and field hollers of the United States slaves during the 19th century, European harmonies and forms, and the rhythms of Africa and the Caribbean. Later, the blues and the influence of Spanish and French Creoles with European classical training nudged jazz further along in its development. As it moved through the swing era of the 1930s, bebop of the 1940s, and cool jazz of the 1950s, jazz continued to serve as a reflection of societal changes. During the turbulent 1960s, freedom and unrest were expressed through Free Jazz and the Avant Garde. Popular and world music have been incorporated and continue to expand the impact and reach of jazz. Today, jazz is truly an international art form. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Jazz contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 1,500 cross-referenced entries on musicians, styles of jazz, instruments, recording labels, bands and bandleaders, and more. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Jazz.

The Methuen Drama Dictionary of the Theatre is an essential reference tool and companion for anyone interested in the theatre and theatre-going. Containing over 2500 entries it covers the international spectrum of theatre with particular emphasis on the UK and USA. With biographical information on playwrights, actors and directors, entries on theatres and theatre companies, explanation of technical terms and theatrical genres, and synopses of major plays, this is an authoritative, trustworthy and comprehensive compendium. Included are: synopses of 500 major plays biographical entries on hundreds of playwrights, actors, directors and producers definitions of nearly 200 genres and movements entries on over 100 key characters from plays information about more than 250 theatres and companies Unlike similar products, The Methuen Drama Dictionary of the Theatre avoids a dry, technical approach with its sprinkling of anecdotal asides and fascinating trivia, such as how Michael Gambon gave his name to a corner of a racing track following an incident on BBC's Top Gear programme, and under 'advice to actors' the sage words of Alec Guinness: 'First wipe your nose and check your flies', and the equally wise guidance from the master of his art, Noël Coward: 'Just know your lines and don't bump into the furniture.' As a companion to everything from the main stage to the fringes of theatrical fact and folklore, this will prove an irresistible book to all fans of the theatre.

This book will severely challenge every element of the consensus explanation for the Great Recession. In fact, a book like this, although not necessarily this one, is urgently needed to counter the massive disinformation spread by the Majority Report of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission that Congress created in 2009 to investigate the financial crisis of 2007-2009 that led to the Great Recession. Congress handed the Commission a list of 19 directives, including the directive to examine “the global imbalance of savings, international capital flows, and fiscal imbalances of various governments; [and] monetary policy and the availability and terms of credit.” The Commission chairman clearly steered the Commission toward the goal of shifting the blame for the financial crisis from government onto the backs of the private mortgage finance industry consisting not only of banks but including mortgage bankers, insurance companies and the mortgage giants popularly known as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The Commission chairman specifically refused to consider any evidence linking the financial crisis and consequential Great Recession that struck the United States but impacted the global economy as well! This book has no agenda other than to present a complete, factual history of the events, conditions and policies that led to the Great Recession. The history will demonstrate that the seeds of the financial crisis were sown during the administration of George Washington and the economic theories spawned during the Great Depression. The overarching thesis is that the Global Financial Crisis and the resulting Global Recession was a perfect superstorm composed of the merger of separate storm systems; notably aggressive welfare activism, the Nation’s “affordable housing” crusade, the zigs and zags of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policies, and the $.9 trillion trade deficit the U.S. accumulated between 1997 and 2007 which former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke dubbed the “Global Savings Glut” and others labeled the “Global Dollar Glut!”

They were the most remarkable couple in London: the great sage Carlyle, with his vehement prophecies, and his witty, sardonic wife Jane. It was a strong, close, mutually admiring yet often mutually antagonistic partnership, fascinating to all who observed it. The Carlyles lived at the heart of English life in mid-Victorian London, but both were outsiders, a largely self-educated Scottish pair who took a sometimes caustic look at the society they so influenced - Carlyle through his copious writings, and both through their network of acquaintances and correspondents. Carlyle's fame was confirmed by his Sartor Resartus of 1843, The French Revolution, his lectures on heroes and hero-worship and by his radical account of contemporary industrial Britain in Past and Present, 1843. Both husband and wife were great letter-writers, Carlyle commenting on the matters of the day, dashing off pen portraits of those he met and Jane with her brilliant stories and her sharp, dry humour. Yet despite her brilliance, Jane suffered, especially from Carlyle's infatuation with the lion-hunting Lady Ashburton, and the tensions in their marriage grew. The letters they wrote, both to each other and to others, make theirs the most well-documented marriage of the nineteenth century and give us an unequalled portrait of a famously unhappy marriage. This moving and vivid biography describes their relationship with each other, from their first meeting in 1821 to Jane's death in 1866, and also their relationship with the world outside. Rosemary Ashton's inimitable blend of rigorous scholarship, warm sensitivity and lively wit makes this not only a portrait of a marriage but a picture of a whole age, elegant, erudite and entertaining.
