Suggested Reading List


A Century of Pop: One Hundred Years of Music That Changed the World


Author: Hugh Gregory


Description: Hugh Gregory's latest effort synthesizes the entire 20th century of popular music in a sumptuously illustrated coffee-table book. "Citing the gramophone as a primary technological and cultural milestone, Gregory proceeds chronologically by decade to identify and investigate the connections between musical styles, influences, and artists. Sidebars containing a CD checklist and world news for the corresponding time period accompany the text. The narrative is informative if brief, but it is the visually stunning profusion of over 500 photographs and illustrations, 300 in color, that earn this book its stripes and make it essential for any popular music/culture collection." Barry X. Miller



Shakespeare's Festive Comedy


Author: Cesar Lombardi Barber


Description: "C.L. Barber is the most compelling of the anthropological critics and his book, 'Shakespeare's Festive Comedy,' is to my mind far and away the most illuminating yet to appear on its subject." Arthur M. Eastman, in "A Short History of Shakespearean Criticism".



The Supreme Court, 11th Edition


Author: Lawrence Baum


Description: In "The Supreme Court", Lawrence Baum provides a brief yet comprehensive introduction to the Supreme Court, one that is balanced and illuminating. Baum delves deeply into the Courts personalities and procedures and explains the actions of the Court and the behaviour of its justices, as he reveals the Court's complexity, reach, and influence.
