Revisiting The Sick Man Of Asia

Book by Sebastian Riebold, Revisiting The Sick Man Of Asia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Revisiting The Sick Man Of Asia books, In the late nineteenth century, a conviction that China was somehow weaker than other political states in Asia and the West spread across the nation. Responses to this dispiriting notion manifested themselves in cultural and political forms, affecting such disparate arenas as popular writing and national resource mobilization. This book shows how, more than a century later, modern China has yet to fully shake the idea of weakness, arguing that the country's Communist leadership relies on this trope to shore up their popularity when they position themselves as the only defense against national humiliation.

Henry Cowell

Book by Joel Sachs, Henry Cowell Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Henry Cowell books, Joel Sachs offers the first complete biography of one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century American music. Henry Cowell, a major musical innovator of the first half of the century, left a rich body of compositions spanning a wide range of styles. But as Sachs shows, Cowell's legacy extends far beyond his music. He worked tirelessly to create organizations such as the highly influential New Music Quarterly, New Music Recordings, and the Pan-American Association of Composers, through which great talents like Ruth Crawford Seeger and Charles Ives first became known in the US and abroad. As one of the first Western advocates for World Music, he used lectures, articles, and recordings to bring other musical cultures to myriad listeners and students including John Cage and Lou Harrison, who attributed their life work to Cowell's influence. Finally, Sachs describes the tragedy of Cowell's life, being sentenced to fifteen years in San Quentin -- of which he served four -- after pleading guilty to a morals charge that even the prosecutor felt was trivial. Providing a wealth of insight into Cowell's ideas and philosophy, Joel Sachs lays out a much-needed perspective on one of the giants of twentieth-century American music.

On Their Own Terms

Book by Benjamin A. ELMAN, On Their Own Terms Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download On Their Own Terms books, Since the middle of the nineteenth century, imperial reformers, early Republicans, Guomindang party cadres, and Chinese Communists have all prioritized science and technology. In this book, Elman gives a nuanced account of the ways in which native Chinese science evolved over four centuries, under the influence of both Jesuit and Protestant missionaries. In the end, he argues, the Chinese produced modern science on their own terms.
