"Das Überraschendste an einer psychologischen Masse ist: welcher Art auch die einzelnen sein mögen, die sie bilden, wie ähnlich oder unähnlich ihre Lebensweise, Beschäftigungen, ihr Charakter oder ihre Intelligenz ist, durch den bloßen Umstand ihrer Umformung zu Masse besitzen sie eine Art Gemeinschaftsseele, vermöge deren sie in ganz andrer Weise fühlen, denken und handeln, als jedes von ihnen für sich fühlen, denken und handeln würde. Es gibt gewisse Ideen und Gefühle, die nur bei den zu Massen verbundenen einzelnen auftreten oder sich in Handlungen umsetzen." G. Le Bon

This dissertation examines the interplay between rock crowds and power at American rock festivals from 1965 to the present. It focuses primarily on rock festivals that are held on repurposed land, that draw over 40,000, and that are literally or nominally free of charge. This project questions the utopian rhetoric that underpins these festivals and unpacks the disjunctive logic that causes audiences to take part in celebrations. Building on the assumption that these types of rock festivals are a postwar phenomenon born of advances in amplification technology and shaped by countercultural aims, it argues that the enormous longevity of this form of entertainment rests on three powerful appeals: sex, drugs, and nature, all three of which touch on American notions of liberty and freedom. But while these three ideas -- sexual liberty ("free love"), liberal drug use ("legalize pot!") and participating in nature as a regenerative idyll -- appeal to white male audiences, they serve to alienate audiences of color. This is doubly unfortunate, because the artistic content of most rock festivals rests on black pop idioms and the display of black bodies. Far from being the utopian and communal spaces of spiritual regeneration that they claim for themselves, I find that they serve mostly to display the free market to consumers in its very best light. At the same time, they may have helped link computer technology to rock music by, among other things, physically illustrating what I call "the digital diaspora, " that is, the new global routes for culture being carved out by the digitization of music.

In analyses of Auto da Fe, Crowds and Power, and the aphorisms, the authors elucidate key aspects of Canetti's interrogation of human existence and human history across five thematic complexes: individual and social psychology, totalitarian politics, religion and politics, theories of society, and power and culture. They thus trace the movement of Canetti's thought from an apocalyptic sense of crisis to his search for cultural resources to set against the holocaust of European civilization."--BOOK JACKET.

In 1934, Veza Taubner and Elias Canetti were married in Vienna. Elias describes the arrangement to his brother Georges as a “functional” marriage. Meanwhile, an intense intellectual love affair develops between Veza and Georges, a young doctor suffering fromtuberculosis. Four years later, Veza and Elias flee Nazi-ruled Vienna to London, where they lead an impoverished and extremely complicated marital life in exile. Spanning the major part of Elias’s struggle for literary recognition, from 1933, before the publication of his novel, Auto-da-Fé, to 1959, when he finished his monumental Crowds and Power, the Canetti letters provide an intimate look at these formative years through the prism of a veritable love triangle: the newly married Elias has a string of lovers; his wife, Veza, is hopelessly in love with an idealized image of his youngest brother, Georges; and Georges is drawn to good looking men as well as to his motherly sister-in-law. Independently and often secretly, the couple communicates with Georges, who lives in Paris: Veza tells of Elias’s amorous escapades and bouts of madness, Elias complains about Veza’s poor nerves and depression. Each of them worries about Georges’s health–if she could, Veza would kiss away the germs. Georges is an infrequent correspondent, but he diligently stores away the letters from his brother and sister-in-law. In 2003, long after his death, they were accidentally discovered in a Paris basement and comprise not only a moving and insightful document, but real literature. From the Hardcover edition.

"A topical study of crowd dynamics and the relationships of crowds to political power in Tunisia, Libya and Algeria, this book takes predominant crowd theory to task questioning received ideas about 'mob psychology' that remain prevalent today. One central theme of the book is gender, providing an in-depth look at women's participation in the recent uprisings and the subsequent gender-related aspects of political transitions. The social and political dynamics of tribalism and other forms of group belonging are raised in the book, including analysis and discussions with Libyan regional tribal chiefs, Libyan and Tunisian tribal members and citizens regarding their notions of tribal belonging. Crowd language is also central to the book's discussion of how crowds represent themselves, how we as observers represent crowds, and how crowds confront languages of authoritarianism and subjugation. Crowds and Politics in North Africa includes dozens of interviews with crowd participants and key civil society actors from Tunisia, Libya and Algeria. Among these, there are numerous interviews with Benghazi residents, activists and tribal leaders as one of the original case studies in the book is the crowds during and after the attack on the US consular installation in Benghazi Libya. A valuable resource, this book will be of use to students and scholars with an interest in the Middle East and Politics more broadly"--
