"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

Looking backward by Edward Bellamy( Book )

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

Two thousand, A.D.First published in 1888, Looking Backward was one of the most popular novels of its day. Translated into more than 20 languages, its utopian fantasy influenced such thinkers as John Dewey, Thorstein Veblen, Eugene V. Debs, and Norman Thomas. Writing from a 19th century perspective and poignantly critical of his own time, Bellamy advanced a remarkable vision of the future, including such daring predictions as the existence of radio, television, motion pictures, credit cards, and covered pedestrian malls. On the surface, the novel is the story of time-traveler Julian West, a young Bostonian who is put into a hypnotic sleep in the late 19th century, and awakens in the year 2000 in a socialist utopia. In conversations with the doctor who awakened him, he discovers a brilliantly realized vision of an ideal future, one that seemed unthinkable in his own century. Crime, war, personal animosity, and want are nonexistent. Equality of the sexes is a fact of life. In short, a messianic state of brotherly love is in effect. Entertaining, stimulating, and thought-provoking, Looking Backward, with its ingenious plot and appealing socialism, is a provocative study of human society as it is and as it might be
