Chopin and His World<br>Edited by Jonathan D. Bellman & Halina Goldberg

Chopin and His World
Edited by Jonathan D. Bellman & Halina Goldberg

Fryderyk Chopin (1810–49), although the most beloved of piano composers, remains a contradictory figure, an artist of virtually universal appeal who preferred the company of only a few sympathetic friends and listeners. Chopin and His World reexamines Chopin and his music in light of the cultural narratives formed during his lifetime.

The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Europe: A History<br>Rita Chin

The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Europe:
A History
Rita Chin

"Chin . . . has produced a well-researched and readable study of policies toward immigrant communities in Great Britain, France, and, to a lesser extent, Germany, from immediately after WWII to the present. . . . She clearly explains how the key consideration for policy makers shifted from their countries’ economic conditions to fear of radical Islam. This trend started with the 1989 fatwa against Salman Rushdie and took full effect after 9/11 and the July 2005 London attacks. In a fine concluding chapter Chin notes flaws both in versions of 'multiculturalism' that foster a view of ethnic communities as homogenous and in the exclusion of immigrant minorities from national narratives."--Publishers Weekly
