21 ATTALI, Jacques. Noise : The Political Economy of Music. Translation by Brian Massumi. Foreword by Frederic Jameson. Afterword by Susan McClary
University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis , 1985, ISBN:0816612870 
ATTALI, Jacques. Noise : The Political Economy of Music. Translation by Brian Massumi. Foreword by Frederic Jameson. Afterword by Susan McClary. Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press, (1985). Pp [i]-xiv,[1]-179,(3). Index. 8vo, illustrated brown card covers. Theory and History of Literature, Volume 16. “In Attali's historical account, the reciprocal relation between music and political economy occurs in four overlapping stages, which also define the structure of this book. The first three stages are sacrifice, characterized by the ritual practices of sacred societies; representation, music-making as a professional activity tied to the marketplace, with music itself a commodity but still as live performance, and repetition, the era of the recording, when music as commodity is offered in endless reproduction, with live performance secondary and the creationof demand all-important. A fourth stage, composition, is in Attali's account a Utopian sketch, not yetclear in its implications; people will make their own music, for themselve s, prefiguring a free and decentralized society and political economy.” (p.i). Very good. 25.00

"The movement of one cultural group into the territory of another has always produced conflict: a conflict which is resolved at times by the obliteration of one group, but more often by a gradual fusion of elements drawn from both. This study examines the conflict between the Europeans and the Indians precipitated by the arrival of the French in the New World. TheIndians were necessarily affected by the fur trade andthe religious and so cial development of New France, and the meeting of contrary cultures resulted in most cases in the obliteration of that of the Indian. However, a fusion of Indian and European elements sometimes occurred, resulting in the birth of a 'Canadian' culture. The process has been repeated with teh immigration of every new cultural group to Canada. This study analyses the conflictand traces thef usion of Canadian culture in its initial stage. First publ ished in 1937, the book has proved an important contribution to an area of early Canadian history which has been receiving renewed attention. This volume is a reprinting of the original text with the addition of an index and a chapter appraising some of the leading developments of the past few years." - from the dustjacket. Chapters : 1.

BAILEY, Petera. Leisure and Class in Victorian England : Ritual recreation and the contest for control, 1830-1885. London : Routledge & Kegan Paul / Toronto and Buffalo : University of Toronto Press, (1978) First Edition. Pp (8),ix-x,1-260,(2). Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Studies in Social History series. "This study examines the transformationof popular leisure from 1830 to 1885 and the middle class schemes for "rat ional recreation", which attempted to reform the leisure habits and amenities of the working classes. It is based on extensive reading of contemporaryperiodicals, the specialist press, government reports and social commentar ies on working class life, much of it previously unused by researchers, anddraws on local evidence. After describing the lively state of working clas s recreations and the social problem that they represented to contemporary reformers, Peter Bailey explores the phenomenon of the new leisure world which overtook Victorian society from the middle of the century, discussing the changing role of leisure for the middle class and the implication for social control and the various campaigns for "rational recreation". The increasing activity and debate among reformers influenced popular culture in three specific areas: the reform experiment of the Working Men's Club movement; the promotion of organized games and the new athleticism; and the emergent mass entertainment industry of the music halls, all of which are examinedin detail. The study assesses the general impact of this attempt to impose a new play discipline and the resistance it met with in working class life , and concludes with a discussion of the implications of the development ofmodern leisure for the broader questions of class relationships and consci ousness." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. Popular recreation in the early Victorian town. 2. Rational recreation: voices of improvement. 3.The new leisure world of the mid-Victorians: the expansion of middle-class recreation, its practice and problems. 4. Dispensing recreation to the mas ses in the new leisure world. 5. Rational recreation in operation: the Working Men's Club movement. 6. Rational recreation and the new athleticism. 7.Rational recreation and the entertainment industry: the case of the Victor ian music halls. Conclusions.

"While there have been many reports over the years describing and analyzing schooling processes in rural Alaska, only rarely have we had an opportunity to see those processes through the eyes of the teacher. This collection of essays provides one such opportunity. The essays included here were selected from over fifty that were submitted by teachers who participated in the First Annual Rural Alaska Instructional Improvement Academy in Fairbanks in May, 1987. The essays were written as a followup to the academy, based on the teachers' reflections on their own experiences in rural schools, as well as on the academy workshops they attended and on the four readings included in the last section of this publication. The teachers were asked to write about either their own notion of the ideal schooling process for rural Alaska (first section of essays), or what they considered to be an appropriate curriculum unit for village schools (second section)." (from the Introduction). Contents : Foreword (by J. Kelly Tonsmiere). Introduction (by Ray Barnhardt). Section I - Some Thoughts on Village Schooling : "Appropriate Schools in Rural Alaska" (by Todd Bergman, New Stuyahok); "Learning Through Experience" (by Judy Hoeldt, Kaltag); "The Medium Is The Message For Village Schools" (by Steve Byrd, Wainwright); "Multiple Intelligences: A Community Learning Campaign" (by Raymond Stein, Sitka); "Obstacles To A Community-Based Curriculum" (by Jim Vait, Eek); "Building the Dream House" (by Mary Moses-Marks, McGrath); "Community Participation in Rural Education" (by George Olana, Shishmaref); "Secondary Education in Rural Alaska"(by Pennee Reinhart, Kiana); "Reflections on Teaching in the Kuskokwim Del ta" (by Christine Anderson, Kasigluk); "Some Thoughts on Curriculum" (by Marilyn Harmon, Kotzebue).

So: 'This, believe it or not (if you believe it easily you know nothing about writing) is a first novel. Brusque? Say, then, it's by John Barth. (Wrote The Sot-Weed Factor and Giles Goat-Boy. Anyone who's read them, he'll know that nothing—nothing—could be too unexpected to be by John Barth at any stage of his career.) The Floating Opera is now published in Britain for the first time.

It just swings along—sings, with gusto and life; there being this very odd man Todd Andrews living in a sleepy oyster-and-crab town in the Chesapeake tidewater country and he's going to commit (not so: he's notgoing to commit) suicide. And there's this beautiful girl he sleeps with, on loan from her husband; and the old men (real old men, both comic and terrible) andother characters too, and to cap it all Adam's Original and Unparalleled F loating Opera. Above all there's John Barth in every word, sharp-eyed, ironic, richly enjoying every quirk and oddity of this very curious world we inhabit. Try it.

St. John's, NF: The Flanker Press, (2007). Pp. (6),vii-xvi,1-302,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. "On January 4, 1914, theKarluk was stuck in ice when the ominous sound of the ship's stern being r ipped open by pack ice was heard by all on board. It sounded like the firing of a cannon. Bartlett immediately ordered supplies be unloaded on the ice. The Karluk began to break up on January 10, and all on board were orderedto abandon ship. When everyone was safely on the ice, the captain himself went back to his cabin and, all alone, put Chopin's 'Funeral March' on his Victrola. As the water rose in the cabin, he whispered 'Goodbye', left the sinking vessel to the mournful sound of Chopin's music and hurried out on the ice. It was to be the beginning of one of the greatest feats of valour in world history. From O'Neill's foreword (and the rear cover). Very good. 12.00

BASQUIAT, Jean-Michel. Basquiat. (Editor: Dieter Buchhart and Sam Keller). (Ostfildern: Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2011). First Printing. Pp. (8),9-188,i-li of text,(5). Illustrated in full colour. Double column. 4to, white cloth with black lettering to front board and spine. A catalogue of an exhibition of Basquiat's works at the Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, May 9 - September 5, 2010. Curators: Dieter Buchhart and Sam Keller. "The American painter and draftsman Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) ranks among the most compelling personalities of recent art history. A self-taught artist from the New York underground, he at first made a living by selling painted T-shirts andxeroxed collage postcards in downtown Manhattan. Having won some acclaim f or his graffiti, Basquiat began exhibiting paintings and drawings as early as 1980. Two years later, aged just 21, he became a participant in Documenta. His friendships with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Madonna are likewiselegendary. Inspired by music or by comic strips, Basquiat's powerful compo sitions combine the mundane with the magic of his own African roots. His works evince the same intensity, the same energy as did his own tragically short life. In the course of his eight-year-long career, Basquiat not only succeeded in creating a wide-ranging oeuvre of his own, but he also added some new figurative and expressive elements to the Conceptual and Minimal Art repertoire." -from the dustjacket. Contents: Glenn O'Brien - "Who Was that Masked Man?" ; Glenn O'Brien - "Basquiat and the New York Scene 1978-82" ; Dieter Buchhart: "Jean-Michel Basquiat: A revolutionary caught between everyday life, knowledge, and myth" ; "I have to have some source material around me: Jean-Michel Basquiat interviewd by Becky Johnston and Tamra Davis, Beverly Hills, California, 1985" ; Robert Storr: "What Becomes a Legend Most?".

Illustrated. 8vo, blue card covers. Tennyson, Cape Bretoniana 4789. "Wilf Carter, Hank Snow, Anne Murray, and Rita MacNeil are just a few of the Maritimers who, over the years, have made their mark on the North American music scene. These downeast performers impart a distinct Maritime flavor to their music, embodying the variety, style and values of the region's culture while combining country and pop with traditional and folk music. 'Maritime Music Greats' follows the story of Maritime music overa fifty year span -- the local environment, the struggles in the industry, and the songs that have brought fame -- from fiddling styles and ceilidh a t the Grand Ole Opry, to the Acadian accent and 'Singalong Jubilee'. It profiles such performers as oldtime fiddlin' great Don Messer, the distinctly Canadian Stompin' Tom Connors, the kilt and country of John Allan Cameron, country Carroll Baker, and the innovative Rankins. Complete with anecdotes and photos, 'Maritime Music Greats' provides an informative and entertaining look at the region's music industry." - from the rear cover. Vg. 12.00
