Where I'm reading from - the changing world of books by Parks, Tim.

Where I'm reading from - the changing world of books

In Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges--who has chronicled the malaise and sickness of a society in terminal moral decline in his books Empire of Illusion and Death of the Liberal Class--investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an am

Visions of music - sheet music in the twentieth century

In the world of antiques, sheet music is classified under the category of "ephemera," which are printed or paper items that were originally expected to have only a short-term usefulness or popularity .
