Smack: Heroin and the American City

Smack Heroin and the American City Eric C. Schneider Winner of the Kenneth Jackson Best Book Award for 2008 from the Urban History Association "A sympathetic, engaging, and highly readable antidote to the war-ondrugs-style morality tale. At times the book reads like the award-winning and controversial HBO television series The Wire. . . . Schneider draws his audience into a colorful narrative complete with larger-than-life characters, heart-tugging tragedies, and triumphant victories that complicate a more simplistic rendering of what constitutes right and wrong, legal and illegal, or mainstream and black market. He effectively humanizes the issue with testimony from users, dealers, traffickers, police, politicians, and educators to show how all parties in this conflict have struggled to bring justice and security to their communities."--American Historical Review "Schneider has produced that rarest of academic commodities--a page-turner. The book is exceedingly well written, and its fascinating research and analysis are sure to make it a central text in the field."--Journal of American History "Deeply researched and briskly written, with rare photographs and biographical vignettes to keep the narrative moving along, Smack . . . is a triumph of imaginative historical scholarship, though a bittersweet one, written by someone in obvious mourning for the drug-accelerated decline of America's great cities."--Addiction "Schneider's absorbing history of heroin's proliferation in America draws a parallel between the evolution and decline of American cities and the rise of heroin use. Rather than treating the city as a "backdrop," Schneider interprets cities as 'the organizers of the world opium market,' and meticulously traces heroin's ascendancy from early 20th century opium dens to the 1920s jazz milieu and into the suburbs of the late 20th century when heroin finally attracted the attention of the mainstream media."--Publisher's Weekly "Since the end of World War II, American cities have been home to illicit drug markets where heroin has been among the most widely-sold products. Smack is Eric Schneider's masterful explanation of how heroin entered America's cities, who used it, what happened as a result and how obtuse public policy and naked corruption not only failed to check its distribution but sometimes even contributed to its spread. Schneider exposes the deep misconceptions underlying the nation's futile war on drugs and offers sane and realistic alternatives that, historic experience suggests, could work, if only public authorities have the courage and will."--Michael Katz, The Price of Citizenship: Redefining the American Welfare State Eric C. Schneider is Adjunct Associate Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Vampires, Dragons, and Egyptian Kings: Youth Gangs in Postwar New York.

Benjamin Samuel
29,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The works of Benjamin Samuel (b. Frankfurt am Main, 1981, lives and works in Frankfurt and London) explore our reverence for the all-embracing intellectual gifts we associate with Renaissance men as well as our understanding of the modern digital world. Benjamin Samuel takes inspiration from favorites such as the movies of Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick, Bach's Goldberg Variations, and Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, but also from Shakespeare's plays and Edgar Allan Poe's stories, the comic books in the Adventures of Asterix and the Adventures of Tintin series, and the stock markets. Condensed into black dashes and dots, letters, notes, or digits on white paper, the data the artist extracts is fed into algorithms of his own devising to yield an explosive play of colors on backlit strips of slide film.With a preface by Henry Keazor and conversations between Benjamin Samuel and artists who engage with similar themes: the New York-based jazz pianist Uri Caine, the British translator Anthea Bell, and the film historian Dan Auiler.

Jazz Poetry Anthology

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Since the turn of the century, there have been hundreds of poems responding to jazz in all its musical and cultural overtones. Although many people associate this union only with the poetry and jazz readings of the Beat movement, the range of poetic and jazz anesthetics, not merely from writers across the United States but from countries around the world as well, embraces an enormous, cross-cultural gathering of writers. This anthology represents many of those responses and the broad appreciation for jazz as poetic inspiration.

Scarred Woman
26,90 CHF *

Praise for The Scarred Woman “Scandinavian crime novels don’t get much darker than Jussi Adler-Olsen’s Department Q police procedurals.”—Marilyn Stasio,  The New York Times Book Review “[S]atisfyingly dark, both in tone and content...an undeniable page-turner.”— Publishers Weekly “[R]iveting...All of the Department Q books contain dark humor, high satire, social commentary—not always politically correct—and grand villains, with The Scarred Woman being no exception.”—BookReporter “[M]esmerizing...The cleverly devised plot paints a fascinating tale of murder and mayhem with a touch of witty and subtle humor.”—Fresh Fiction  “You’ll be desperate to figure out the identity of the scarred woman as the suspense drives toward a deadly and at times comical conclusion.”—Associated Press “The novel is eerily timely...[and] the relationship and banter between Carl and his associate Assad, with Assad's ‘linguistic blunders,’ continue to elicit chuckles. Adler-Olsen is deadly serious, though, and compassionate when it comes to poor, traumatized Rose. She may have emotional scars but her friends have got her back.”— Shelf Awareness “The legions of readers still enjoying the Millennium books will devour this seventh in a series starring the officers of Copenhagen’s cold-case unit, Department Q.”— Booklist “Filled with dark humor and tight plotting....Highly recommended.”—Spinetingler Magazine “Highly recommended as dark literature written with beauty and class.”—The Suspense Is Thrilling Me Blog “[A] superbly constructed multi-layered mystery.”—Murder, Mayhem, and More  Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q series “It can be hard to distinguish Scandinavian crime writers—there are a lot of them, and their names have consonant clusters and umlauts and all that jazz—but Jussi Adler-Olsen is a name to know. In a crowded genre, Adler-Olsen is an outlier.”—GQ.com  “If you like the dark humor, wisecracking, and layered betrayals of Raymond Chandler, then read Adler-Olsen’s Department Q series.”— Men's Journal “Thrilling, clever, and driven by a rough-hewn protagonist.”— Paste Magazine “A tense, pleasurable read.”— USA Today “[A] sordid tale… inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there is more, so much more in this frenzied thriller.”— The New York Times Book Review  “Adler-Olsen merges story lines...with ingenious aplomb, effortlessly mixing hilarities with horrors...This crime fiction tour de force could only have been devised by an author who can even turn stomach flu into a belly laugh.”— Publishers Weekly (starred review) “This series has enough twists to captivate contemporary mystery readers and enough substance and background to entertain readers with historical and literary tastes.”— Library Journal (starred review) “When your series relies on cold cases, it’s not always easy to craft plots that have both historical interest and an air of urgency, but it’s something Adler-Olsen is very good at.”— Booklist

Uncommon Etudes from Common Scales
34,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Uncommon Etudes from Common Scales will better equip students and challenge improvisers of all levels with etudes that travel through all keys using common chord types. Also, expand your melodic and creative ability as an improviser and composer by applying Contrast to diatonic phrases! The etudes are suited for C, Bb and Eb treble clef instruments. The appendix features the changes for all etudes in the correct transposition to accompany Bb and Eb instruments. This volume of etudes by Mike Rossi is packed with appealing, swinging, modern, modal, model melodies. Like Dr. Rossi’s previous volume, “Contrast and Continuity,” this is a further contribution to learning contemporary jazz vocabulary, based on swing articulation and occasionally venturing into odd time signatures. Although intended for individual practise as preparation for soloing, selections from these etudes were performed by saxophone ensembles accompanied by rhythm section at recent jazz education conferences I attended and they sounded great. Like worthwhile etudes in every tradition, Uncommon Etudes focus on particular instructional outcomes while revealing the musical insights of a thoughtful and talented composer. Prof. Darius Brubeck, Honorary Research Associate, University of Kwazulu-Natal and IAJE Board: Africa/Middle East Representative. Following in the footsteps of his acclaimed “Contrast and Continuity in Jazz Improvisation,” Michael Rossi has crafted a book of etudes that are, at once, as educationally stimulating as they are musically fulfilling. A scintillating approach and a valuable addition to every improvising musician’s resource library! Chuck Owen, University of South Florida Distinguished University Professor Artistic Director, Center for Jazz Composition President, IAJE. Uncommon Etudes is the secret and cure for students and pros alike when practicing scales in all keys. These etudes are firstly MUSIC and also FUN to play. Combined with the etudes is Rossi´s unique Contrast concept, which transforms already hip-sounding, scale-based phrases into a multi-coloured CREATIVE sound and language. The “virtual” chord changes found in the appendix, allows concert instruments the opportunity to comp for transposing instruments, another excellent addition to an already great book. Ulrich Süsse Composer. Once again. As he did with his last book, “Contrast and Continuity in Jazz Improvisation,” Mike has been studious in presenting material that is beyond the theoretical, but has practical and immediate use as a means of adding vocabulary to one´s playing. David Liebman. “Uncommon Etudes from Common Scales” by Professor Mike Rossi is a comprehensive addition to the field! This systematic method challenges, and intensifies, creative improvisational development utilizing melodic and rhythmic contrast. Exploring harmonic applications and related phrase development are strongly encouraged and integrated to internalize and expand the improviser´s perspective, fluency … and musicality! Dennis Tini, Distinguished Professor of Music Co-Founder, Jazz Studies Program, Wayne State University-Detroit Past President
