K-pop – The International Rise of the Korean Music Industry (Media, Culture and Social Change in Asia)

K-pop, described by Time Magazine in 2012 as "South Korea’s greatest export", has rapidly achieved a large worldwide audience of devoted fans largely through distribution over the Internet. This book examines the phenomenon, and discusses the reasons for its success. It considers the national and transnational conditions that have played a role in K-pop’s ascendancy, and explores how they relate to post-colonial modernisation, post-Cold War politics in East Asia, connections with the Korean

Warren Zevon: Desperado of Los Angeles (Tempo: A Rowman & Littlefield Music Series on Rock, Pop, and Culture)

Warren Zevon was one of the most original songwriters to emerge from the prolific 1970s Los Angeles music scene. Beyond his most familiar song—the rollicking 1978 hit “Werewolves of London”—Zevon’s smart, often satirical songbook is rich with cinematic, literary, and comic qualities; dark narratives; complex characters; popular culture references; and tender, romantic ballads of parting and longing.

Then Sings My Soul: The Culture of Southern Gospel Music (Music in American Life)

  • Used Book in Good Condition

In this ambitious book on southern gospel music, Douglas Harrison reexamines the music's historical emergence and its function as a modern cultural phenomenon. Rather than a single rhetoric focusing on the afterlife as compensation for worldly sacrifice, Harrison presents southern gospel as a network of interconnected messages that evangelical Christians use to make individual sense of both Protestant theological doctrines and their own lived experiences. Harrison explores how listeners and cons

Weimar on the Pacific: German Exile Culture in Los Angeles and the Crisis of Modernism (Weimar and Now: German Cultural Criticism)

In the 1930s and 40s, Los Angeles became an unlikely cultural sanctuary for a distinguished group of German artists and intellectuals—including Thomas Mann, Theodore W. Adorno, Bertolt Brecht, Fritz Lang, and Arnold Schoenberg—who had fled Nazi Germany. During their years in exile, they would produce a substantial body of major works to address the crisis of modernism that resulted from the rise of National Socialism. Weimar Germany and its culture, with its meld of eighteenth-century German c

The Pop Music Idol and the Spirit of Charisma: Reality Television Talent Shows in the Digital Economy of Hope (Pop Music, Culture and Identity)

The Pop Music Idol and the Spirit of Charisma is concerned with the political economy of the music industry in a world of digitalisation. The sale of recorded music now resides in a contestable digital landscape. The old organisational models based on centralised control of products are no longer viable because pop music now resides in a largely corporatist marketplace. The majors have desperately set out to seek commercial synergies in the 21st Century as emerging technologies have brought dimi

I am so moved and grateful for all the support you are all showing for our forthcoming film @freececedoc. We have 11 more days left in our campaign. Help us get to the finish line with our financial goal. On the show I play Sophia Burset, a trans woman of color who experiences violence from corrupt individuals and a corrupt prison system. In the documentary film and through the story of we’re exploring in depth this culture of violence that far too many trans folks particularly trans folks of color experience everyday. We need your help to complete this film. Please contribute whatever dollar amount you can to our campaign and share our campaign in social media. I have experienced the power of truthful storytelling can have to ignite social change. Help us tell this story. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/free-cece-post-production-campaign Link also in bio.
