Summary

The fictional high-school milieu of Glee — the wildly popular Fox television series that debuted in 2009 — is celebrated and dissected in this detailed companion to the series. The songs, the students, and the idiosyncratic teachers all come under affectionate scrutiny in this fan's compendium. The familiar dramas that beset the members of the McKinley High glee club, New Directions, have struck a chord with a wide Audience that ranges from tweens to 20-somethings and beyond.Glee watchers will relish this analysis of everyrelationship, fashion statement, insult, and triumph that is plumbed for greater meaning and nostalgic pleasure. The music that is such a key element of the show — a careful mix of show tunes and popular hits — is also thoughtfully discussed. Trivia, in-jokes, profiles of the actors,and a detailed synopsis of the show's first season make this an indispensable reference for the growing fan base of "gleeks" that are devoted to this fledgling television sensation.

    A music historian uncovers Nazi Germany’s use of Mozart as a WWII propaganda tool in this “intriguing study [that] comprehends a range of vital topics” (Choice).   As the Nazi war machine expanded its bloody ambitions across Europe, the Third Reich sought to promote a sophisticated and even humanitarian image of German culture through the tireless promotion of Mozart’s music. In this revelatory book, Erik Levi draws on World War II era articles, diaries, speeches, and other archival materials to provide a new understanding of how the Nazis shamelessly manipulated Mozart for their own political advantage.  Mozart and the Nazis also explores the continued Jewish veneration of the composer during this period while also highlighting some of the disturbing legacies that resulted from the Nazi appropriation of his work. Enhanced by rare contemporary illustrations, Mozart and the Nazis is a fascinating addition to the study of music history, World War II propaganda, and twentieth century politics.
