In Search Of The Wind-Band (Video Trailer) Book Video Excerpts From Around The Globe, Dan Rager

Dan Rager

 “International Instrumental Dissemination” describes instrument types in 16 countries that include Rock & Roll to Sousa and Puccini. This book explores detailed and precise history. The 21 chapters contain hundreds of photos, videos, mp3 and pdf files bringing to life unknown cultures and ensembles from around the globe from which I visited and recorded first hand.

Kimberly Zarecor, "Manufacturing A Socialist Modernity: Housing In Czechoslovakia, 1945-1960", Marshall Poe, Kimberly Zarecor Sep 2014

Kimberly Zarecor, "Manufacturing A Socialist Modernity: Housing In Czechoslovakia, 1945-1960", Marshall Poe, Kimberly Zarecor

Kimberly E. Zarecor

When I first went to the Soviet Union (in all my ignorance), I was amazed that everyone in Moscow lived in what I called "housing projects." The Russians called them "houses" (doma), but they weren't houses as I understood them at all. They were huge, multi-story, cookie-cutter apartment blocks, one standing right next to the other for miles. "Why?" I asked myself. Kimberly Zarecor's wonderful Manufacturing a Socialist Modernity: Housing in Czechoslovakia, 1945-1960 (Pittsburgh UP, 2011) goes a long way in providing an answer, and it's a surprising one. As she shows, socialism and architectural modernism were ...

Monica Black, "Death In Berlin: From Weimar To Divided Germany", Marshall Poe, Monica Black Jun 2014

Monica Black, "Death In Berlin: From Weimar To Divided Germany", Marshall Poe, Monica Black

Monica Black

Over 2.5 million Germans died as a result of World War I, or about 4% of the German population at the time. Somewhere between 7 and 9 million Germans died as a result of World War II, or between 8% to 11% of the German population at the time.* It's hardly any wonder, then, that in the first half of the twentieth century the Germans were preoccupied with death and how to deal with it-it was all around them. Monica Black's impressive Death in Berlin: From Weimar to Divided Germany (Cambridge University Press, 2011) explains how they ...

Andrew Donson, “Youth In The Fatherless Land: War Pedagogy, Nationalism, And Authority In Germany, 1914-1918″, Marshall Poe, Andrew Donson Apr 2011

Andrew Donson, “Youth In The Fatherless Land: War Pedagogy, Nationalism, And Authority In Germany, 1914-1918″, Marshall Poe, Andrew Donson

Andrew Donson

I was a little kid during the Vietnam War. It was on the news all the time, and besides my uncle was fighting there. I followed it closely, or as closely as a little kid can. I never thought for a moment that "we" could lose. "We" were a great country run by good people; "they" were a little country run by bad people. I spent my time building models of American tanks, planes, and ships. I read a lot of "Sergeant Rock" and watched re-runs of "Combat." My friends and I played "war" everyday after school. Given all this ...
