James Brown, the godfather of soul by James Brown ( Book )
19 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 1,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since his first chart-topper in 1956, he's outlived, outlasted, outperformed all rivals. He is the funk-and-soul innovator and rap's driving spirit. His dazzling stage shows are legendary. Now James Brown tells his own story, just as he plays his music: loud, proud and soulful. From his dirt-poor childhood in an Augusta brothel to wealth and world fame and his recent incarceration, James Brown takes a unique look behind the closed doors of poverty, segregation, politics and the music industry. With brilliant anecdotes about Little Richard, Elvis, Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Tammi Terrell, Michael Jackson, and many others, plus a new updated introduction and epilogue and an exhaustive discography."--Book cover, p.

American culture transformed : dialing 9/11 by Priscilla L Walton ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The bombing of the Twin Towers in New York City on September 11, 2001, marked a major turning point in modern American culture. Priscilla Walton and Bruce Tucker examine critical moments in the aftermath of 9/11 - the Enron scandal, the trial of Martha Stewart, the capture and rescue of Jessica Lynch, the torture at Abu Ghraib prison, the widespread popularity of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code and Tim LeHaye's "Left Behind" series, Michael Moore's movie Fahrenheit 9/11, and former president Ronald Reagan's funeral. The authors argue that commentators on the American scene abandoned complexity, seeking to reduce events to their simplest signification. They ask how the singularity of meaning came to dominate American cultural consciousness, and they seek to theorize the critical cultural and political movements of the post 9/11 period."--Publisher's website
