(Time-Life/Hightone) 30 zeitlose Country, Roots und Americana Aufnahmen 1983- 2006. Schuberverpackung mit 12-seitigem Farbheft. - Dale Watson, Rosie Flores, Hank Thompson, The Blasters, Gary Stewart, Buddy Miller, Chris Gaffney, Big Sandy, Joe Louis Walker, Tom Russell, Dick Dale, Robert Cray Band, Hot Club Of Cowtown, Heather Myles, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Ramblin´ Jack Elliot u.a. - Als die Roots-Musikfans Larry Sloven und Bruce Bromberg 1983 HighTone Records gründeten, hatten beide keinen klaren Blick auf die Zukunft. Ich hatte nicht gerade eine Vision´´, gibt der Slowene zu, der im Vertrieb für einen Plattenvertrieb tätig war. Ich wollte mich nur daran beteiligen, Musik zu veröffentlichen, die ich für gut hielt. Er und Bromberg, Freunde seit 1977, glaubten, sie würden mit der Neuauflage von Material des großen westlichen Swing-Sängers Tommy Duncan beginnen. Aber, wie Bromberg erklärt, unter Hinweis auf die frühen Veröffentlichungen von Robert Cray, Doug McLeod und Frankie Lee: ´´Wir begannen als Blues-Label. Das habe ich vor HighTone´ als Produzent und Vertriebsmitarbeiter für eine Vielzahl von Labels gemacht, darunter auch für seinen eigenen Joliet. Aber dann gingen wir an Orte, die wir nicht erwartet hatten. Tatsächlich hat sich HighTone, zunächst an den aufsteigenden Stern des modernen Bluesman Cray angelehnt und dann durch den chart-führenden Multi-Künstler Merle Haggard Tribute Tulare Dust an die Spitze der Americana-Klasse katapultiert, als risikoreiches Label mit einem beispielhaften Genre-Hopping-Katalog etabliert. Als sie die jüngste Retrospektive American Music zusammenstellte: Die HighTone Records Story und ausgewählte Tracks für diese Anthologie, HighTone hatte Platten von etablierten Veteranen des Blues, Country und Rock´n´ Roll veröffentlicht, die Tresore unabhängiger Labels für Rockabilly, Blues und Reggae erschlossen und vielversprechende neue Stimmen im progressiven Country und Singer-Songwriter Folk gefördert. Es passt alles zusammen´´, sagt Slowenisch und äußert ein Gefühl, das durch die hervorragenden Klänge dieser essentiellen Kollektion bestätigt wird.
This ambitious and stimulating book describes how a moral revolution in the first centuries AD - the discovery of human freedom and its universal potential - led to a social revolution in the west. The invention of a new, equal social role, the individual, gradually displaced the claims of family, tribe and caste as the basis of social organisation. Larry Siedentop asks us to rethink the evolution of the ideas on which modern societies and government are built, and argues that the core of what is now our system of beliefs emerged much earlier than we think. The roots of liberalism - belief in individual liberty, in the fundamental moral equality of individuals, that equality should be the basis of a legal system and that only a representative form of government is fitting for such a society - all these, Siedentop argues, were pioneered by Christian thinkers of the Middle Ages, who drew on the moral revolution carried out by the early church. It was the arguments of canon lawyers, theologians and philosophers from the eleventh to the fourteenth century, rather than the Renaissance, that laid the foundation for liberal democracy. There are large parts of the world where other beliefs flourish - fundamentalist Islam, which denies the equality of women and is often ambiguous about individual rights and representative institutions; quasi-capitalist China, where a form of utilitarianism enshrines state interests even at the expense of justice and liberty. Such beliefs may foster populist forms of democracy. But they are not liberal. In the face of these challenges, Siedentop urges that understanding the origins of our own liberal ideas is more than ever an important part of knowing who we are.
Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934), the father of modern neuroscience and a Nobel laureate, was an exceptional artist. He devoted his life to the anatomy of the brain, the body´s most complex and mysterious organ. His superhuman feats of visualisation, based on fanatically precise techniques and countless hours at the microscope, resulted in some of the most remarkable illustrations in the history of science. Beautiful Brain presents a selection of his exquisite drawings of brain cells, brain regions and neural circuits with accessible descriptive commentary. An art book at the crossroads of art and science, Beautiful Brain describes Cajal´s contributions to neuroscience, explores his artistic roots and achievement and looks at his work in relation to contemporary neuroscience imaging techniques.

Is life unfair for black Americans? Is racial equality the answer to every question of public policy? Is a huge group of citizens kept down by ´´the man´´? Radio host and best-selling author Larry Elder has made a career out of being a thorn in the side of the conventional-wisdom crowd. He deflates the pompous and points out the completely logical truths hidden behind the nutty rhetoric and out-of-control pandering of politicians and the so-called leaders of a variety of special-interest groups. In Stupid Black Men, he takes on the mind-set of those people who always capture the most media attention - as well as masses of public money - people who say that racism is the root of all problems and who end up hurting precisely those they claim to be helping. Whether they are demagogues like Al Sharpton, established politicians like Hilary Clinton, or entertainers like Danny Glover, no one escapes Elder´s cogent arguments and rapier wit. His sometimes hilarious and always infuriating examples of wrong-headedness skewer not just politicians for their smugness and hypocrisy but also actors, educators, religious leaders, and the ´´main-scream media´´ for keeping the story in the headlines. But Elder has a positive message, too: though they are fewer - and generally not as loudmouthed - there are leaders and role models today who want to sweep away race-based whining and urge everyone in America to share in the hard work, smart thinking, and optimism that make this country great. 1.
