The Nag Hammadi Story (2 Vols.): From the Discovery to the Publication (Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies)

James M Robinson

"The Nag Hammadi Story" is not a history of research in the usual sense of a "Forschungsbericht," which would report on the massive amount of scholarship that has been devoted to the content of the Nag Hammadi Codices for more than a half-century. Rather it is a socio-historical narration of just what went on during the thirty-two years from their discovery late in 1945, via their initial traf... read more

Ralph Melnick

In the winter of 1892 the new instructor of physical training at Smith College, a diminutive young woman with a heavy accent, introduced her students to an adaptation of James Naismith's new game of Basket Ball.

Legacies of Ewan MacColl: The Last Interview (Ashgate Popular and Folk Music Series)

Giovanni Vacca

Ewan MacColl is widely recognized as a key figure in the English folk revival, who tried to convey traditional music to a mass audience.

Critical Music Historiography: Probing Canons, Ideologies and Institutions

Vesa Kurkela, Markus Mantere

During the past two decades, there has emerged a growing need to reconsider the objects, axioms and perspectives of writing music history.
