Travel through time and across the country with this state-by-state tour of the United States over the past 100 years. Following on from the critically acclaimed National Geographic: Around the World in 125 Years, the volume brings together more than 700 captivating images from the magazine's illustrious archives to chart a century of change and growth from Alabama to Wyoming. State by state, these remarkable images bring a vivid account of a vast, evolving, and diverse country, from breathtaking landscapes to advancing industry, evocative rural life to burgeoning towns and cities. We travel from the ski slopes of Colorado to the jazz bars of New Orleans, from the luxurious Hollywood Hills to a barbershop in Kentucky, and from Manhattan's Chinatown to a river baptism in Mississippi. Along the way, the tour takes in the gamut of photographic evolution, shifting from early black-and-white and autochrome images of the 1920s and 1930s into midcentury Kodachrome, then the harder-edged reportage of the 1970s and 1980s, and finally the digital images of the 1990s through to the present. With an introductory essay by photography editor David Walker, as well as prefaces to each state section and fascinating storytelling captions, this book celebrates not only the world's greatest photography magazine but also the people, history, and beauty of the United States in all its kaleidoscopic glory.

As ethnomusicological studies of the voice expand, so must our understanding of what voice even means. Voice must entail more than just a sonic phenomenon, but must also relate to ideology, to our very identity, even. This thesis will fuse ethnomusicological and legal perspectives to explore how American and, to a lesser extent, international copyright law and other legal mechanisms protect more than just a musician's economic interest, but also his very identity. This thesis will examine where copyright law protects identity and where it falls short and how the right of publicity fills in the gaps to provide comprehensive protection for a musician's voice in the broadest sense. It will provide a background on the scope of copyright law, as well as how it has historically developed to protect more than just work-product, but also the musician's very identity. These explorations can help us understand how musicians can protect their identity by protecting their ideological, as well as their physical, voices.

Much of what occurs in major league baseball is well documented. Away from the bright lights and multilevel palaces of the big leagues are many more people involved in the game at other levels. Players, from rookies to veterans, struggle to work their way to the major leagues. These journeys are repeated annually across the globe. Many of the stories here came first-hand from the people who lived them through interviews with the author. Imagine playing in Japan for the first time, only to discover that your interpreter is still trying to learn English. Or being traded for a bucket of fish. Or having your team bus break down in the mountain wilderness where the closest sign of civilization is a dilapidated country store with heads from freshly killed wildlife staked outside. Or discovering that your two year-old has flushed the last of your family's money down the toilet while your husband was away on a road trip. Or fighting an unexpected case of nerves in your first major league at-bat while facing the legendary Warren Spahn. For every game, every inning, and every out, there a stories. For decades after Jackie Robinson broke the major league color barrier, the fight against racism continued in the minors. Ballplayers and their families who were expecting another typical winter league baseball season in Havana, Cuba suddenly found themselves in the middle of Fidel Castro's revolution. Players are not the only ones to be heard from. Over one hundred and fifty people involved in the game were interviewed for this book. There are umpires who had to flee angry mobs, a baseball broadcaster who was the last to re-create games in a studio, and a manager who had to deal with a player overcomeby the death of Elvis. Fans, family, scouts, owners, front office people, and mascots share their experiences here. The chapters also cover superstitions, pratfalls, promotions, ballpark oddities, first experiences in professional ball, getting the call to the major leagues, and finally hanging up one's glove. The game is filled with colorful characters and antics. There was Casey Stengel, still years away from his legendary major league managerial career, who once threatened to wear a dress on the field. Ed Nottle was one of several ejected managers who got their revenge on the umpires while wearing some bizarre disguises (that didn't include dresses). Players have had to tread carefully on minor league fields, avoiding gopher holes and auto parts. A game was once cancelled due to a frog infestation. Discover why players were burning bats during a game in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Or why a player used a peeled potato in a close game instead of a baseball. Find out which parks you could have won a racehorse in, or perhaps a free funeral. This isn't the baseball you're going to see on ESPN, but it's still a lot of fun.
