Making New Music in Cold War Poland presents a social analysis of new music dissemination at the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music, one of the most important venues for East-West cultural contact during the Cold War. In this incisive study, Lisa Jakelski examines the festivalâs institutional organization, negotiations among its various actors, and its reception in Poland, while also considering the festivalâs worldwide ramifications, particularly the ways that it contributed to the cross-border movement of ideas, objects, and people (including composers, performers, official festival guests, and tourists). This book explores social interactions within institutional frameworks and how these interactions shaped the practices, values, and concepts associated with new music. Â
Colm TÃ³ibÃnâs second âlovely, understatedâ novel that âproceeds with stately graceâ (The Washington Post Book World) about an uncompromising judge whose principles, when brought home to his own family, are tragic.

Behind the Christmas songs we love to sing lie fascinating stories that will enrich your holiday celebration. Taking you inside the nativity of over thirty favorite songs and carols, Ace Collins introduces you to people youâve never met, stories youâve never heard, and meanings youâd never have imagined. The next time you and your family sing "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," youâll have a new understanding of its message and popular roots. Youâll discover how "Angels from the Realms of Glory," with its sublime lyrics and profound theology, helped usher in a quiet revolution in worship. Youâll learn the strange history of the haunting and powerful "O Holy Night," including the songâs surprising place in the history of modern communications. And youâll step inside the life of Mark Lowry and find out how he came to pen the words to the contemporary classic "Mary, Did You Know?" Still other songs such as "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" trace back to mysterious origins--to ninth-century monks, nameless clergy, and unknown commoners of ages past. Joining hands with such modern favorites as "White Christmas" and "The Christmas Song," they are part of the legacy of inspiration, faith, tears, love, and spiritual joy that is Christmas. From the rollicking appeal of "Jingle Bells" to the tranquil beauty of "Silent Night," the great songs of Christmas contain messages of peace, hope, and truth. Each in its own way expresses a facet of Godâs heart and celebrates the birth of his greatest gift to the world--Jesus, the most wonderful Christmas Song of all.
