The musical leitmotif, having reached a point of particular forcefulness in the music of Richard Wagner, has remained a popular compositional device up to the present day. In this book, Matthew Bribitzer-Stull explores the background and development of the leitmotif, from Wagner to the Hollywood adaptations of The Lord of The Rings and the Harry Potter series. Analyzing both concert music and film music, Bribitzer-Stull explains what the leitmotif is and establishes it as the union of two aspects: the thematic and the associative. He goes on to show that Wagner's Ring cycle provides a leitmotivic paradigm, a model from which we can learn to better understand the leitmotif across style periods. Arguing for a renewed interest in the artistic merit of the leitmotif, Bribitzer-Stull reveals how uniting meaning, memory, and emotion in music can lead to a richer listening experience and a better understanding of dramatic music's enduring appeal.

Volume 1 of Software Engineering, Third Edition includes reprinted and newly authored papers that describe the technical processes of software development and the associated business and societal context. Together with Volume 2, which describes the key processes that support development, the two volumes address the key issues and tasks facing the software engineer today. The two volumes provide a self-teaching guide and tutorial for software engineers who desire to qualify themselves as Certified Software Development Professionals (CSDP) as described at the IEEE Computer Society Web site (www.computer.org/certification), while also gaining a fuller understanding of standards-based software development. Both volumes consist of original papers written expressly for the two volumes, as well as authoritative papers from the IEEE archival journals, along with papers from other highly regarded sources. The papers and introductions of each chapter provide an orientation to the key concepts and activities described in the new 2004 version as well as the older 2001 version of the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK), with many of the key papers having been written by the authors of the corresponding chapters of the SWEBOK. Software Engineering is further anchored in the concepts of IEEE/EIA 12207.0-1997 Standard for Information Technology--Software Life Cycle Processes, which provides a framework for all primary and supporting processes, activities, and tasks associated with software development. As the only self-help guide and tutorial based on IEEE/EIA 12207.0--1997, this is an essential reference for software engineers, programmers, and project managers. This volume can also form part of an upper-division undergraduate or graduate-level engineering course. Each chapter in this volume consists of an introduction to the chapter's subject area and an orientation to the relevant areas of the SWEBOK, followed by the supporting articles and, where applicable, the specific IEEE software engineering standard. By emphasizing the IEEE software engineering standards, the SWEBOK, and the contributions of key authors, the two volumes provide a comprehensive orientation to the landscape of software engineering as practiced today. Contents: * Key concepts and activities of software and systems engineering * Societal and legal contexts in which software development takes place * Key IEEE software engineering standards * Software requirements and methods for developing them * Essential concepts and methods of software design * Guidelines for the selection and use of tools and methods * Major issues and activities of software construction * Software development testing * Preparation and execution of software maintenance programs

Psychoanalytic Explorations In Music

"This second series of essays is an enriching companion to its ground-breaking predecessor. In a truly interdisciplinary endeavor, the scope of the "explorations" is extended by a unique international group of scholars working in both music and psychoanalysis. Unlike the earlier series, this volume consists entirely of original contributions." "This volume continues the analytic study of individual composers in articles on Bach and Mozart, Robert Schumann, Satie and Wagner. Wagner receives particular attention in studies of universal fantasies which relate to the music, the psychological function of the Leitmotif, and Freud's familiarity with Wagner, hitherto unexplored. Other composers whose works are considered are Schubert and Bartok." "A core issue in each of the two fields resides in the study of affect: What is its nature; the means and modes of representation? How is affect communicated in both the clinical situation and in the performance of music? In a central section of the book, "On Affect and Music," writers in both areas address these questions." "An opening section concerns itself with the problem of method in applied psychoanalysis with specific reference to music, the only such treatment in the literature. Also included in this portion of the book is a preliminary report of an ongoing study of contemporary composers based upon analytic interviews." "The volume concludes with a pair of historical essays, one of which considers myths of Freud's relationship to music. The second is a study of the musicologist in Freud's early circle (and the father of "Little Hans"), Max Graf." "The present volume then is the second in what promises to become a unique series - an intellectual venue for an authentically interdisciplinary study of psychoanalysis and music."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This unique historical survey illustrates the interaction of multiple artistic and dramatic considerations with an overview of the development of numerous popular musical theater genres. This introduction provides more than a history of musical theater, it studies the music within the shows to provide an understanding of the contributions of musical theater composers as clearly as the artistry of musical theater lyricists and librettists. The familiarity of the musical helps readers understand how music functions in a song and a show, while giving them the vocabulary to discuss their perceptions. The guide reviews the antecedents to the genre of “musical theater,” the musical stage in the 19th century, divergent paths in the twentieth century, synthesis of style and substance, new partnerships, new faces of the 40s, 50s 60s and 70s, and changes of approach in the 1980s and 90s. For fans of music and musical theater.

In a recent survey on politics, economy, environment, safety, health, education and traffic in central cities, Amsterdam ranked among the ten best places to live. The reasons why can be found in Understanding Amsterdam. Essays by ten prominent social scientists, among them Manuel Castells, Edward Soja and Susan Fainstein, present views on changes in the economy, and the cultural and spatial layout of Amsterdam, suggesting new ways of thinking about Amsterdam. They discuss urban growth and how the city has fared through the ages of suburbanization and globalization. The local situation is explored from different perspectives. The stories depict how a city with an impressive historical past is continuously adapting to change.

As the age of globalization and New Media unite disparate groups of people in new ways, the continual transformation and interconnections between ethnicity, class, and gender become increasingly complex. This reader, comprised of a diverse array of sources ranging from the New York Times to the journals of leading research universities, explores these issues as systems of stratification that work to reinforce one another. Understanding Inequality provides students and academics with the basic hermeneutics for considering new thought on ethnicity, class, and gender in the 21st century.
