Around Newcastle and Tyneside in the 1970s (Paperback): David Morton Around Newcastle and Tyneside in the 1970s (Paperback)

In a decade of steep industrial decline, Ian La Frenais and Dick Clement had their fingers on the pulse of changing nation. Introducing `Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?' on BBC1 in 1973, we saw the characters of Bob Ferris and Terry Collier simultaneously looking back on the 60s and looking forward to the 70s. Alongside the images of a transforming Newcastle, the theme song lamented the lines `Oh what happened to you, whatever happened to me? What became of the people we used to be?' Victorian built terraced streets were demolished in favour of more modern alternatives, such as the Byker Wall housing complex. Eldon Square was demolished to make way for a shopping complex. The Central motorway began to take form. The Tyne and Wear Metro system would come to revolutionise public transport. All this change amongst the backdrop of conflicting unions and management. Yet the household experienced more access to mod-cons; colour television, stereo players and even a family car. Pop culture also experienced a surge with music coming from the likes of David Bowie, Elton John and Pink Floyd. It was a bad decade for football as Newcastle failed to repeat the success of their win of the Inter City Fairs Cup, and as the 70s changed to the 80s they found themselves in the second division. This vast amount of change would lead the way for a new era, Thatcher's era, which would deliver its own set of challenges and problems for the North East - but that's another story. For now, enjoy the fascinating story and stunning photographs of Newcastle and Tyneside in the 1970s.

Age of Concrete - Housing and the Shape of Aspiration in the Capital of Mozambique (Paperback): David Morton Age of Concrete - Housing and the Shape of Aspiration in the Capital of Mozambique (Paperback)

R798 R674 Discovery Miles 6 740 Save R124 (16%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Age of Concrete is a history of the making of houses and homes in the suburbios of Maputo (Lourenco Marques), Mozambique, from the late 1940s to the present. Often dismissed as undifferentiated, ahistorical "slums," these neighborhoods are in fact an open-air archive that reveals some of people's highest aspirations. At first people built in reeds. Then they built in wood and zinc panels. And finally, even when it was illegal, they risked building in concrete block, making permanent homes in a place where their presence was often excruciatingly precarious. Unlike many histories of the built environment in African cities, Age of Concrete focuses on ordinary homebuilders and dwellers. David Morton thus models a different way of thinking about urban politics during the era of decolonization, when one of the central dramas was the construction of the urban stage itself. It shaped how people related not only to each other but also to the colonial state and later to the independent state as it stumbled into being. Original, deeply researched, and beautifully composed, this book speaks in innovative ways to scholarship on urban history, colonialism and decolonization, and the postcolonial state. Replete with rare photographs and other materials from private collections, Age of Concrete establishes Morton as one of a handful of scholars breaking new ground on how we understand Africa's cities.

The Wider Earth (Paperback): David Morton The Wider Earth (Paperback)

R274 R209 Discovery Miles 2 090 Save R65 (24%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In 1831, Charles Darwin, a twenty-two-year-old aspiring naturalist, stepped on board HMS Beagle. Little did he realize that the voyage would last five years, changing not only his own life - but also the history of the entire world. The Wider Earth brings this era-defining adventure to life, from traversing the dizzying heights of the Andes to diving into the depths of the Brazilian rainforest, through weathering the storms of Tierra del Fuego, to exploring the endless wonders of the Galapagos Islands. David Morton's play received its widely acclaimed premiere at Queensland Theatre in Australia in 2016, before transferring to the Natural History Museum, London, in October 2018, presented by Trish Wadley Productions, Dead Puppet Society and Glass Half Full Productions, in a partnership project with the Natural History Museum. Originally performed in a dazzling state-of-the-art production with remarkable puppetry and cinematic animations, the powerful story at the heart of The Wider Earth will inspire schools, colleges and amateur theatre companies to create simpler - but no less spectacular - stagings of their own. This edition includes 4 pages of color production photos from the 2018 Sydney Festival and Sydney Opera House production.

Off the Record - The Technology and Culture of Sound Recording in America (Paperback): David Morton Off the Record - The Technology and Culture of Sound Recording in America (Paperback)
David Morton
R894 Discovery Miles 8 940 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

David L. Morton examines the process of invention, innovation, and diffusion of communications technology, using the history of sound recording as the focus. Off the Record demonstrates how the history of both the hardware and the ways people used it is essential for understanding why any particular technology became a fixture in everyday life or faded into obscurity. Morton's approach to the topic differs from most previous works, which have examined the technology's social impact, but not the reasons for its existence. Recording culture in America emerged, Morton writes, not through the dictates of the technology itself but in complex ways that were contingent upon the actions of users.Each of the case studies in the book emphasizes one of five aspects of the culture of recording and its relationship to new technology, at the same time telling the story of sound recording history. One of the misconceptions that Morton hopes to dispel is that the only important category of sound recording involves music. Unique in his broad-based approach to sound technology, the five case studies that Morton investigates are : The phonograph record Recording in the radio business The dictation machine The telephone answering machine, and Home taping Readers will learn, for example, that the equipment to create the telephone answering machine has been around for a century, but that the ownership and use of answering machines was a hotly contested issue in the telephone industry at the turn of the century, hence stifling its commercial development for decades. Morton also offers fascinating insight into early radio: that, while The Amos and Andy Show initially was pre-recorded and not broadcast live, the commercial stations saw this easily distributed program as an economic threat: many non-network stations could buy the disks for easy, relatively inexpensive replaying. As a result, Amos and Andy was sold to Mutual and went live shortly afterward.
