Book Summary:

Against the backdrop of the concept of love generated in the 18th century by the Romantic movement as an ongoing force in contemporary society, argues that such notions did not exist during classical Greek and Roman periods. Also severely critiques popular culture as using Romantic love to perpetuate the oppression of the new poor by commodifying affectionate sentimentality. Borrowing the master and slave vocabularies from Nietzsche, finds that the prevailing sexual code for the rich is pornography and libertarianism reminiscent of decadent Rome, while the poor live by a version of love that turns them into a colonized mass.

Book Summary:

The study of jazz comes of age with this anthology. One of the first books to consider jazz outside of established critical modes, Jazz Among the Discourses brings together scholars from an array of disciplines to question and revise conventional methods of writing and thinking about jazz. Challenging "official jazz histories," the contributors to this volume view jazz through the lenses of comparative literature; African American studies; music, film, and communication theory; English literature; American studies; history; and philosophy. With uncommon rigor and imagination, their essays probe the influence of various discourses--journalism, scholarship, politics, oral history, and entertainment--on writing about jazz. Employing modes of criticism and theory that have transformed study in the humanities, they address questions seldom if ever raised in jazz writing: What are the implications of building jazz history around the medium of the phonograph record? Why did jazz writers first make the claim that jazz is an art? How is an African American aesthetic articulated through the music? What are the consequences of the interaction between the critic and the jazz artist? How does the improvising artist navigate between chaos and discipline? Along with its companion volume, Representing Jazz, this versatile anthology marks the arrival of jazz studies as a mature, intellectually independent discipline. Its rethinking of conventional jazz discourse will further strengthen the position of jazz studies within the academy. Contributors. John Corbett, Steven B. Elworth, Krin Gabbard, Bernard Gendron, William Howland Kenney, Eric Lott, Nathaniel Mackey, Burton Peretti, Ronald M. Radano, Jed Rasula, Lorenzo Thomas, Robert Walser
