    Abstract: The opening decades of the twentieth century witnessed a profound transformation in the history of modern sound media, with workers in US film, radio, and record industries developing pioneering production methods and performance styles tailored to emerging technologies of electric sound reproduction that directly shaped dominant forms and experiences of modern sound culture. Focusing on broadcasting's initial expansion period during the 1920s, 'Making Radio' explores the forms of creative labor pursued for the medium before the better-known network era of the 1930s and 1940s, assessing their role in shaping radio's own identity and identifying affinities with parallel practices pursued for conversion-era film and phonography

    Abstract: Modernist literature is inextricable from the history of obscenity. The trials of such figures as James Joyce, D. H. Lawrence, and Radclyffe Hall loom large in accounts of twentieth-century literature. 'Filthy Material' reveals the ways that debates about obscenity and literature were shaped by changes in the history of media

'Little Cold Warriors' illustrates the many ways children and ideas about childhood served the demands of the Cold War

    Abstract: In an ambitious overview of 1000 years of history, from the formation of the city-state of Rome to the establishment of a fully Christian culture, T.P. Wiseman examines the evidence for the oral delivery of 'literature' to mass public audiences. The treatment is chronological, utilising wherever possible contemporary sources and the close reading of texts. Presenting the history of Roman literature as an integral part of the social and political history of the Roman people, he draws some unexpected inferences from the evidence that survives. In particular, he emphasises the significance of the annual series of 'stage games', and reveals the hitherto unexplored common ground of literature, drama and dance

    Abstract: 'Back to the Fifties' examines the explosion of Fifties nostalgia in Hollywood film and popular music from the early 1970s to the late 1980s. It both complicates and transcends standard diagnoses of the political function of nostalgia in popular media, and sheds new light on a crucial and underexamined period in American politics and culture. By closely examining the ways that 'the Fifties' were remade and recalled in films and in pop music, the book notes the importance of 'the Fifties' to a generation of Americans and explores the ways popular culture facilitates cultural memory

    Abstract: 'Selling Yoga' explores how modern yoga became transformed from a largely countercultural phenomenon to a part of pop culture when entrepreneurs became strategic participants in a global market and succeeded in 'selling yoga' by establishing continuity between their yoga brands and the dominant demands of consumer culture. Although the author focuses on the most widely consumed yoga systems, those of postural yoga, she compares a diverse array of modern yoga types
