1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty years ago, Trojan Records began its intensive campaign of introducing Jamaican music to the rest of the world. Hip, well-connected and extremely fast on their feet, Trojan ensured they heard the best singles first, and rapidly secured the rights to share them with an insatiable new audience thousands of miles from Jamaica. .... To celebrate Trojan's golden jubilee, MOJO is honoured to team up with the rejuvenated label for a deep dive into their storied catalogue. The result is Reggae Nuggets, a new treasure of roots, rocksteady, ska, and all Jamaican points in between. - John Mulvey, Editor, MOJO -- Adapted from container

Chosen Capital : The Jewish Encounter with American Capitalism( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surveying such diverse topics as Jews' participation in the real estate industry, the liquor industry, and the scrap metal industry, as well as Jewish political groups and unions bent on reforming American capital, such as the American Labor Party and the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union, contributors to this volume provide a new prism through which to view the Jewish encounter with America. The volume also lays bare how American capitalism reshaped Judaism itself by encouraging the mass manufacturing and distribution of foods like matzah and the transformation of synagogue cantors into recording stars. These essays force us to rethink not only the role Jews played in American economic development but also how capitalism has shaped Jewish life and Judaism over the course of the twentieth century.

Josie Natori interview, 2017 June 12 by Josie Cruz Natori( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Josie Natori, founder of The Natori Company, met with Phyllis Dillon to discuss her career as a lingerie designer. Growing up in the Philippines, Josie Natori was surrounded by go-getters; her father, aunts and uncles, and paternal grandmother were all successful entrepreneurs. Natori shares how after seven years of working on Wall Street, she no longer felt excited by it, leading her to look for a new career. She found it in fashion. At first, Natori bought and sold Fillipino-designed garments in the American market before growing her brand into one of the largest selling lingerie brands in the country. Natori treats her designs as clothes first; clothes that people just happen to sleep in. Discussing her growth into foreign markets, Natori shares her thoughts on changing times and the development of online shopping. Natori reveals that she finds designing lingerie so rewarding because it is such a personal set of garments for a woman to buy and (she hopes) loves
