Myth's central importance does not end with our art or religions. It is not solely a dusty world of broken clay pots and tablets written in dead languages. Our myths determine how we engage with the world, how we enter into it. How we treat ourselves and one another. Far from being archaic relics of the past, myths will determine our future. Even if we are unaware of them, they will continue to affect us. This book explores the subject of immanent myth from many angles, through articles, essays, and interviews from a variety of people actively engaged in mythic work and research. We must invent our myths-or re-invent them-ourselves. If you haven't already, take this as a wake-up call to join in and become a myth-maker of the 21st century. <br /><br />Editor James Curcio Copy Editors Jazmin Idakaar Lucy Harrigan Reference and Bibliographic Assistance Jazmin Idakaar.

Reggae Stories: Jamaican Musical Legends and Cultural Legacies

ReggaeStories provides a range of perspectives on the development of Jamaican popular music and culture, in particular reggae and dancehall, and opens the door to new debates on these music forms and their producers and creators. It moves through early musical debates and incendiary intellectual contributions in Jamaican reggae to trace Jamaican popular music in new geographical locales and then returns home to contemporary dancehall posturing. The contributors to this collection incorporate a range of approaches that includes cultural studies, musicological analysis, lyrical analysis and historical contextualization.<br /><br />The collection makes a seminal contribution with its presentation of significant work on reggae music in the Hispanic Caribbean (Mexico), particularly for the benefit of English speakers who may have faced restrictions in accessing such material. In a similar vein, the work also introduces material on reggae music in the former Soviet Union (Belarus), again opening spaces that may have been hidden from the anglophone debates.<br /><br />The work also makes another significant contribution in tackling Peter Tosh’s intellectual and lyrical legacy as a reggae revolutionary in an era where he has received scant literary and academic attention. Additionally, the work adds considerably to contemporary debates on dancehall music and culture’s postmillennial identity debates by introducing a critical academic discourse on the lyrical and cultural posturing of popular dancehall artistes Tommy Lee and Vybz Kartel.<br /><br />ReggaeStories spans several important and connected points in the debates around adoption and adaptation of Jamaican popular music and culture in different cultural and geographical contexts and extends the discussion on how these musical and cultural forms have been transformed or retained in differing localities.<br /><br />CONTRIBUTORS: Racquel Bernard, Robin Clarke, Donna P. Hope, Christian E. López-Negrete Miranda, Klaus Näumann, Anna Kasafi Perkins<br /><br />DONNA P. HOPE is Senior Lecturer, Institute of Caribbean Studies and the Reggae Studies Unit, the University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica. Her publications include Inna di Dancehall:<br /><br />Popular Culture and the Politics of Identity in Jamaica and Man Vibes: Masculinities in the Jamaican Dancehall.

<p><strong>The music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries in its cultural, social, and intellectual contexts.</strong></p><br />Joseph Auner's <em>Music in the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries</em> explores the sense of possibility unleashed by the era's destabilizing military conflicts, social upheavals, and technological advances. Auner shows how the multiplicity of musical styles has called into question traditional assumptions about compositional practice, the boundaries of music and noise, and the relationship among composer, performer, and listener. He also shows how composers and their works have played important roles in defining ideas of nation, race, and gender, and thus in shaping the modern world for better and worse.<br /><br /><br /><br /><em>Western Music in Context: A Norton History</em> comprises six volumes of moderate length, each written in an engaging style by a recognized expert. Authoritative and current, the series examines music in the broadest sense—as sounds notated, performed, and heard—focusing not only on composers and works, but also on broader social and intellectual currents.<br />

For 500 years the enigmatic Primavera has guarded its secret. A chance discovery by the author of a disguised message, clearly visible in the painting, has unlocked the secret of this famous Renaissance masterpiece. Painted in an age both violent and inspiring, the meaning of the Primavera throws open a window onto the extraordinary cryptic world of the Renaissance pagan revival. An elite circle around the Medici was disillusioned with a worldly and corrupted Church. They sought a purer, unadulterated Christianity in the pagan background of their faith – a quest that risked attracting the wrath of the medieval Church. In 1460 an Egyptian manuscript, said to be from the time of Moses, was brought to Cosimo de’ Medici in Florence. It was interpreted as showing that the religions of the Christian and pagan eras shared a common source of revelation. Profoundly influenced by its impeccable authority, the Medici circle, and specifically Marcillio Ficino, the inspiration of the Florentine Academy, sought to reconcile the three great religions with pre-Christian beliefs. <br /><br />The philosophy which emerged, Renaissance Platonism, became 'the breath of life for all the most instructed minds of Europe' (Burckhardt) <br />La Primavera is a 'painted philosophy' which would be readily recognisable by the young Pier Francesco d'Medici for whom it was painted and intended to instruct. His tutor was the champion of this philosophy, Marsilio Ficino.<br /><br /> Documents recovered at the time, revealing classical societies as sophisticated, ordered and devout, inspired a belief in Man’s divine dimension. This ‘god-like’ being stood in stark contrast to the humble sinner of Italy's medieval period. This realisation of the nobility of Man captured the imagination of the most erudite and inspired artists like Leonardo Da Vinci to portray the depths of this extraordinary being. It was his re-birth, his renaissance.<br />

In music, the period from the middle of the eighteenth century to the beginning of the nineteenth is usually referred to as the ‘Classical’ era. This was a period in which the art, literature and architecture of Ancient Greece and Rome were being rediscovered and re-evaluated, which in turn strongly influenced the ‘modern’ art of the time. But this was also a period of immense social change and political unrest, with challenges to the old established order culminating in the French Revolution of 1789. Discover Music of the Classical Era shows how all this was reflected in the music written during those turbulent but also intensely creative years.<br />
