Summary

The revised and expanded BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors presents 256 private collections of contemporary art accessible to the public—large and small, famous and still undiscovered. Succinct portraits of the collections with countless color illustrations take the reader to more than forty countries, often to regions or urban districts that are off the beaten path. This practical guide is a collaborative publication stemming from the partnership between BMW and Independent Collectors, the international online network for collectors of contemporary art. Collectors, gallerists, artists, and journalists assisted in the extensive research and revision of this unique standard work. To date, neither the internet nor any book has ever contained a comparable assembly of international private collections, including several that have opened their doors to art lovers and connoisseurs for the first time.

    This criminal history of the Berkshires is brimming with unforgettable stories of greed, jealousy, and madness from the turn of the twentieth century.   The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts are known for their picturesque beauty, but this history offers a fascinating look at the region’s dark side. This chronicle includes true tales of greed, betrayal and violence in The Bay State.   In the summer of 1893, a tall and well-dressed burglar plundered the massive summer mansions of the upper crust . . .   A visit from President Teddy Roosevelt in 1902 ended in tragedy when a trolley car smashed into the presidential carriage, killing a Secret Service agent . . .   A psychotic millworker opened fire on a packed streetcar, leaving three dead and five wounded, shocking the nation . . .   These and many more stories—from axe murders to botched bank jobs—paint a stark portrait of the inequities that shadowed the extravagance of the Gilded Age.

    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.
