The Culture of the New Capitalism
Publisher: Yale University Press | ISBN: 030010782X | edition 2006 | PDF | 224 pages | 10,7 mb

The distinguished sociologist Richard Sennett surveys major differences between earlier forms of industrial capitalism and the more global, more febrile, ever more mutable version of capitalism that is taking its place. He shows how these changes affect everyday life—how the work ethic is changing; how new beliefs about merit and talent displace old values of craftsmanship and achievement; how what Sennett calls “the specter of uselessness” haunts professionals as well as manual workers; how the boundary between consumption and politics is dissolving.

As it has wowed musicians for over a century, the magic of New York City fired the imagination of superstar pianist Lang Lang who is joined by a one-of-a-kind cast of collaborating artists for the creation of his new album, New York Rhapsody. From the haunting reveries of Gershwin and Copland to the in-the-moment intensity of songs made famous by Alicia Keys, Lou Reed and Don Henley, New York Rhapsody rediscovers the dazzle and the soul of America s most symbolic city as great artists have imagined them.

EAC Rip | FLAC (tracks+.cue+log) - 1,6 GB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 675 MB | Covers - 65 MB
Genre: Electronic, Ambient, New Age | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Jumpin' & Pumpin' (CDB TOT 11)

There is some great ambient electronica on these 4 Discs. This collection was put out on the Jumpin' & Pumpin' label back in 1999. If you are a Jake Stephenson fan this is a very important collection, since it includes the whole of the Crystal Moon (Jake Stephenson and Matt Hillier) album 'Temple' which is otherwise a very expensive CD to pick up. All the tracks are here. There are also a number of other Jake Stephenson tracks, either under his own name (unusually), or under more of his pseudonyms (Alien Mutation, Curly Whirly Spirits). We also get some Matt Hillier tracks, and some rather good tunes by Dave Hendry (as O-Head, Hyperborea and Twilight Pilot).
Imagining New England: Explorations of Regional Identity from the Pilgrims to the Mid-twentieth Century

Imagining New England: Explorations of Regional Identity from the Pilgrims to the Mid-twentieth Century by Joseph Conforti
English | 31 Oct. 2001 | ISBN: 0807826251 | 400 Pages | PDF | 5.33 MB

New England as a cultural invention; Say "New England" and you likely conjure up an image in the mind of your listener: the snowy woods or stone wall of a Robert Frost poem, perhaps, or that quintessential icon of the region - the idyllic white village. Such images remind us that, as Joseph Conforti notes, a region is not just a territory on the ground. It is also a place in the imagination.
