Robert Philip ISBN 0521235286 out of print book for sale Early Recordings and Musical Style Changing Tastes In Instrumental Performance 1900-1950 -by- Robert Philip. ISBN 0521235286. The author argues that the reasons for examining early 20th-Century performance are compelling; it is the earliest period from which the primary source material has survived - we have the performances themselves and do not have to rely on documents; furthermore, the recordings have preserved the general performance practice of the period in great detail including habits which are scarcely mentioned in written documents; early 20th-Century recordings have a particular relevance to the study of performance practice in the 19th-Century; recordings also show how performance has gradually changed from the early 20th-Century to our own time, demonstrating how practices of the 20th-Century have evolved.

Structures Of The Jazz Age: Mass Culture, Progressive Education, And Racial Disclosures In American Modernism -by- Chip Rhodes. Rhodes charts the 1920s cultural landscape populated by critical intellectuals like H L Mencken and Irving Babbitt, and by major imaginative writers like Dos Passos, Cather and Dreiser; looking beyond the mainstream, the author also considers more marginal schools of thought including progressive educational philosophy, the critique of mass culture, and the cult of primitivism, exemplified in the less canonised figures like Anzia Yezierska, Harry Leon Wilson and DuBose Heyward; he shows how these different strands were woven together in a way that helped to sustain Republican rule and an expanding economy, until the entire edifice came tumbling down in the stock market crash of 1929.
