Book Summary:

Real-life all too rarely offers stories that are quite as satisfying as fiction. Bringing Down the House is one of the exceptions. Cheating in casinos is illegal; card-counting - making a record of what cards have so far been dealt to enable the player to make some prediction of what cards remain in the deck - is not. But casinos understandably dislike the practice and make every effort to keep card-counters out of their premises. Bringing Down the House tells the true story of the most successful scam ever, in which teams of brilliant young mathematicians and physicists won millions of dollars from the casinos of Las Vegas, being drawn in the process into the high-life of drugs, high-spending and sex. Bringing Down the House is as readable and as fascinating as Liar's Poker or Barbarians At the Gate, an insight into a closed, excessive and utterly corrupt world.

Book Summary:

Review: "Between 1979 and 1997 over a quarter of Britain's regional theatres closed down. Those that survived found themselves constantly on the brink, forced to reduce their programmes radically and to go dark for extended periods of time. Bringing Down the House: The Crisis in Britain's Regional Theatres delves into how and why this crisis occurred, and examines the long-term effects on Britain's theatre industry by revealing problems that extend beyond the Conservative government's scant regard for the arts, right back to the Second World War." "By probing the history of regional theatres from the introduction of state funding, Turnbull unearths a catalogue of recurring problems that ensured the fabric of British theatre was historically fragile. Between the foundation of the Arts Council in 1945 and the Conservatives' victory in 1979, unresolved issues about the nature of regional theatre and the basis for allocating funds made it difficult for theatres to adapt successfully to changing times. Turnbull explores why theatres were so ill equipped to deal with Thatcherism and asks what, if anything, was done under Blair to address the situation. An important and timely read for theatre and cultural history scholars alike, Bringing Down the House interrogates the history and politics of regional theatre."--BOOK JACKET

Book Summary:

For freedom to have a meaning, it must come through the sacrifice of the people. It is on this notion that the book narrates the journey of Nigeria and its people from the colonial perspective; it highlights contemporary realities with critical thoughts and gives an in-depth understanding of power politics. The book is a thorough work on Nigeria's historical and political evolution since the inception of its self-rule, with special appraisal on its political leaders. It provides insight on how Nigeria can be re-shaped by a new definition of power. The author argues persuasively, the road that should be taken by the people of Nigeria, in restoring the meaning of citizenship.

Book Summary:

My dissertation, Bringing Down the House: Situating and Mediating Opera in the Twenty-First Century," challenges the structural primacy of the opera house by studying opera companies that move beyond its walls. I argue for a new assessment of place, spectatorship and technology in contemporary operatic performance. I introduce the term Alt-Op to define the work of independent and regional Canadian and American opera companies that, from 2012 to 2017, employ new modes of viewership to rebrand and reshape opera as an art form in a digital economy. I use the concept of Alt-Op as an alternative to both stereotypes of opera that exist in public culture, as well as the conventional relationships between sight and sound, spectacle and audience that are established by the opera house. Although recent studies broadly acknowledge the role of digital media in opera production, these analyses rely primarily on traditional conceptions of the opera house and the opera audience. In considering site-specific and digital practices of mediation, my dissertation, therefore, offers a critical analysissss of the effects of digital media consumption on traditional Western art forms in the twenty-first century. These changing entertainment interfaces affect the experiences of both spectators and performers. By incorporating ethnographic research into reception studies, I foreground the lived experiences of performers competing in a changing "gig" economy with implications for workers beyond the artistic sector. Analysis of industry rhetoric and practices that focus on evolving operatic marketing strategies, including training given to singers, collaborations between alternative opera companies, and festival-based performance practices applied to longer seasons provides a shift from analysis of "onstage" productions to "backstage" process. With this methodological approach, I situate operatic performance within contemporary economic ecosystems, with potential implications for analysis of traditional in-house productions. At a time in which experimental performance is receiving recognition on the national stage, it is essential to critically consider the forms operatic performance may take beyond the institutional walls of the opera house. In turn, these processes of inquiry illuminate the networks of production adn consumption around institutional and experimental artistic culture in the contemporary United States and Canada.
