"Directly or indirectly, Arnold Schoenberg had a greater impact on the music of the twentieth century than any other composer. He was a vigorous polemicist whose theories were driven by his compositional practice, and although his music was for many decades more talked about than listened to, Schoenberg's influence has been incalculable" "In this completely rewritten and much enlarged updating of his long-indispensable study, Malcolm MacDonald takes advantage of thirty years of recent scholarship, new biographical information, and deeper understanding of the composer's aims and significance to produce a richly argued and thought-provoking guide to Schoenberg's life and work. He demonstrates how Schoenberg's musical language (including the much misunderstood twelve-note method), his personal character, and his creative ideas are indissolubly linked, as is his genius as a teacher and as an original composer. He also examines virtually every work in the oeuvre to demonstrate its vitality and many-sidedness. A chronology of Schoenberg's life, a work-list, an updated bibliography, and a much-expanded personalia enhance the usefulness of this new edition."--Jacket

International law for seagoing officers by Burdick H Brittin( Book )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For those who operate on, under and over the sea, international law can sometimes be as complex as it is important. Written by the same former seagoing officer and maritime law professional who authored the current edition of Farwell's Rules of the Nautical Road, this book was designed to bring clarity and context to international law for the seagoing professional. Following an introduction to public international law and a short history of the law of the sea, the book describes the rules that apply in ports and in the adjacent maritime zones, including the territorial sea, exclusive economic zone, archipelagic waters and the high seas. A highlight of the book are the chapters that focus on the subjects of greatest interest to the seagoing professional, including military and intelligence activities in the maritime domain, maritime law enforcement activities and the use of force at sea. The appendices include the text of the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. Whether an academy cadet, a midshipman, a seasoned commanding officer, or a master mariner, readers of this thorough and timely book will be rewarded with a far greater understanding of the international laws that govern ships and mariners at sea"--

2 editions published in 1941 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Boston on December 26, 2000, but written before the turn of the nineteenth century, this classic Utopian novel is more significant and relevant than ever with its reappearance this millennium. Addressing moral and material concerns of late nineteenth century industrial America through romantic narrative, Bellamy suggests a fictionalized society in which war, poverty, and malice do not exist
