E-BOOK EXCERPT

It took me a lifetime to have the courage and the clarity to write my memoir. I want to tell the story of the moments - the ups and downs, the triumphs and traumas, the debacles and the dreams, that contributed to the person I am today. Though there have been countless stories about me throughout my career and very public personal life, it’s been impossible to communicate the complexities and depths of my experience in any single magazine article or a ten-minute television interview. And even then, my words were filtered through someone else’s lens, largely satisfying someone else’s assignment to define me. This book is composed of my memories, my mishaps, my struggles, my survival and my songs. Unfiltered. I went deep into my childhood and gave the scared little girl inside of me a big voice. I let the abandoned and ambitious adolescent have her say, and the betrayed and triumphant woman I became tell her side. Writing this memoir was incredibly hard, humbling and healing. My sincere hope is that you are moved to a new understanding, not only about me, but also about the resilience of the human spirit. Love, Mariah

The rags to riches story that is Mariah Carey's life. She was discovered, promoted and later married to music executive Tony Mottola, and became the biggest selling recording artist of the 1990's, and the only musical artist to have a #1 hit for every year of that decade. Shapiro's new book also includes coverage of Carey's recent break-up with Mottola, in which it was revealed that he abused her, kept her prisoner in their mansion, and her bizarre behavior when performing live. Full colour and black and white photographs.

Romance. Adventure. Mystery. This book has none of these things. What it does have in spades is a bunch of very short stories, many of which were first published in the local newspaper. For too long, short stories have not been nearly short enough. The collection you're holding in your hot little hands aims to remedy this. The Meaning of Life (And Other Short Stories) is a collection of Stuart McCullough's best writing. Rest assured that the short stories included in this collection have all either been hand-picked or (at the very least) right mouse clicked and dragged, to ensure that only the absolute cream of the crop has ended up between the covers.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

We have come to a point where an entire human section has been cleverly led to believe that, as much as they are permitted to choose the skin colour that they like, it is also true that their chosen skin colour is to become for them "the measure of everything". This is why we are in trouble today, due to the cultural and identity disorientation that has resulted from that dogma; because most of us have ended up vouching for "who" they are actually not, since they have been told that choosing to fall into a skin colour box alone is enough for them to be "who" they think they are. Yet, a human being that has no clear idea of "what" it is beyond its complexion, is nothing in the middle of humans, but a mere farm animal. This book solves, as never expected, the mystery of Black people's lack of cultural integrity in today's world.

Literary critic, cultural commentator, TV personality, journalist, poet, political analyist, satirist and Formula One fan: Clive James is a man (and master) of many talents, and the essays collected in The Meaning of Recognition are testament to that fact. Whether discussing Bing Crosby, Bruno Schulz or Shakespeare, he manages to prioritise style and substance simultaneously, his tone never less than pitch-perfect, his argument always considered. With each phrase carefully crafted and each piece offering cause for thought, the resulting volume – which takes the reader from London to Bali, theatre to library, from pre-election campaigning to sitting in front of the TV at home, watching The Sopranos and The West Wing – is remarkable not only for its range and insight, but also its intimacy and honesty. A contemporary everyman, James is also unmistakably himself, and The Meaning of Recognition shows him at his witty, learned – and heartfelt – best.

The essays contained in this volume address some of the most visible, durable and influential of African American musical styles as they developed from the mid-1960s into the 21st-century. Soul, funk, pop, R&B and hip hop practices are explored both singly and in their many convergences, and in writings that have often become regarded as landmarks in black musical scholarship. These works employ a wide range of methodologies, and taken together they show the themes and concerns of academic black musical study developing over three decades. While much of the writing here is focused on music and musicians in the United States, the book also documents important and emergent trends in the study of these styles as they have spread across the world. The volume maintains the original publication format and pagination of each essay, making for easy and accurate cross-reference and citation. Tom Perchards introduction gives a detailed overview of the books contents, and of the field as a whole, situating the present essays in a longer and wider tradition of African American music studies. In bringing together and contextualising works that are always valuable but sometimes difficult to access, the volume forms an excellent introductory resource for university music students and researchers.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

This volume explores how we can meaningfully relate today's world to the end of the Cold War. The over-all picture is one of flux. Many changes will be the outcome of longer-term trends (eg: Internet). Undeniably, though, many other changes are direct consequences of the end of the Cold War. An important aspect is the way Europeans and Americans have begun to redefine each other, in response to a creeping alienation that has affected public opinion and public discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. Time to restore a more balanced view.

The Vocabulary Diet includes 30 reproducible units, with 5 new vocabulary words studied in each. Each unit begins by studying the dictionary definitions of five words.

The students then work on a series of exercises to ensure new vocabulary is understood and remembered. There is a complete Answer Key. Unlike diets that help you take it off, The Vocabulary Diet helps you to add on. It helps you to add on new vocabulary words to your students' language repertoires. New words that your students will be able to use with precision and confidence.
