Where Sight Meets Sound Book Excerpt:

The main function of western musical notation is incidental: it prescribes and records sound. But during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, notation began to take on an aesthetic life all its own. In the early fifteenth century, a musician might be asked to sing a line slower, faster, or starting on a different pitch than what is written. By the end of the century composers had begun tasking singers with solving elaborate puzzles to produce sounds whose relationship to the written notes is anything but obvious. These instructions, which appear by turns unnecessary and confounding, challenge traditional conceptions of music writing that understand notation as an incidental consequence of the desire to record sound. This book explores innovations in late-medieval music writing as well as how modern scholarship on notation has informedsometimes erroneouslyideas about the premodern era. Drawing on both musical and music-theoretical evidence, this book reframes our understanding of late-medieval musical notation as a system that was innovative, cutting-edge, and dynamicone that could be used to generate music, not just preserve it.

The first part on "imperial landscapes" is devoted to large-scale architectural schemes and monuments, including the Queen Victoria Memorial in London and the Vittoriano in Rome. In the second part, the focus is on imperial display throughout the city, from spectacular exhibitions and ceremonies, to more private displays of empire in suburban gardens. The final part considers the changing cultural and political identities in the imperial city, looking particularly at nationalism, masculinity and anti-imperialism.

A Heart Condemned to Roam Book Excerpt:

All my life, people have been telling me the meaning of life… Ben Carter, drifter in dreamland, has a broken heart and a wandering mind. His memories are in fragments, played back and forth, like a CD of life’s greatest hits. Devoutly Catholic and reserved philosophy student Ben's conservative sensibilities and romantic inexperience were challenged by intense, eccentric Professor Wilkinson and gothic, beguiling Winona. Winona's European departure and Wilkinson's suicide sent Ben spiraling into depression and doubt. With Winona's return, Ben makes his way across America, finding advice along the way. From the veteran's war philosophy to the hitchhiker's road wisdom to the Kenyan priest's story of redemption, he seeks the meaning of life on the way back to the woman he loves. Spiritual, pensive, and human, A Heart Condemned to Roam is a journey into the heart of America, the way of love, and inscrutable nature of life itself.

The Vienna Gestapo 1938 1945 Book Excerpt:

The Vienna Gestapo headquarters was the largest of its kind in the German Reich and the most important instrument of Nazi terror in Austria, responsible for the persecution of Jews, suppression of resistance and policing of forced labourers. Of the more than fifty thousand people arrested by the Vienna Gestapo, many were subjected to torturous interrogation before being either sent to concentration camps or handed over to the Nazi judiciary for prosecution. This comprehensive survey by three expert historians focuses on these victims of repression and persecution well as the structure of the Vienna Gestapo and the perpetrators of its crimes.
