Artie Shaw : his life and music by John White( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the dashing and handsome leader of one of America's most accomplished big bands in the 1930s and 40s, Artie Shaw achieved measures of fame and fortune which temporarily eclipsed even those of his great rival, Benny Goodman. By 1990, his total sales exceeded 100 million records. Yet Artie Shaw has always been an ambitiously serious musician who frequently tired of the music business, often forsaking it for extended periods. He also achieved renown as a writer of fiction." "Unlike Benny Goodman, Shaw has not been well served by jazz historians. This study (a revised edition of a book first published in the UK in 1998) offers a compelling narrative account and an intelligent analytical assessment of the achievements and concerns of a major figure in American popular music."--Jacket

Now fully revised and updated, this third edition of a popular text explores the African-American experience from the slave period to the present. As well as analyzing the contribution of significant figures such as Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcolm X, and Jesse Jackson, the book now includes a separate chapter on the remarkable work of female political and cultural leaders, including Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, Mary McLeod Bethune, Fannie Lou Hamer, Condoleezza Rice, and Oprah Winfrey. The book ends with a consideration of the life and career of Barack Obama - America's first black president - who has sometimes been perceived as downplaying the issue of race in his leadership roles. A remarkable work of synthesis and collective biography, illuminated with numerous first-person quotations, A History of African-American Leadership is ideal for students of American history, politics, sociology, and race relations, as well as for general readers interested in gaining a deeper understanding of one of the major issues of our time
