The B-side - the death of Tin Pan Alley and the rebirth of the great American song by Yagoda, Ben, author.

The B-side - the death of Tin Pan Alley and the rebirth of the great American song

"Everybody knows and loves the American Songbook. But it's a bit less widely understood that in about 1950, this stream of great songs more or less dried up. All of a sudden, what came over the radio wasn't Gershwin, Porter, and Berlin, but "Come on-a My House" and "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?" Elvis and rock and roll arrived a few years later, and at that point the game was truly up. What happened, and why? In The B Side, acclaimed cultural historian Ben Yagoda answers those question

Lincoln's rise to the presidency by Harris, William C. (William Charles), 1933-

Lincoln's rise to the presidency

"By describing Lincoln's rise from obscurity to the presidency, William Harris shows that Lincoln's road to political success was far from easy - and that his reaction to events wasn't always wise or his racial attitudes free of prejudice. Although most scholars have labeled Lincoln a moderate, Harris reveals that he was by his own admission a conservative who revered the Founders and advocated 'adherence to the old and tried.' By emphasizing the conservative bent that guided Lincoln's political
