All of these sides but one (a pop vocal by Charles Trenet) were made in December 1940, just half a year into the Nazi occupation of Paris. People are still marveling over the fact that Django Reinhardt, a Gypsy who played music closely aligned with Jews and Afro-Americans, was not arrested and put to death by the invasive regime, for these collective jams were and are the antithesis of fascist ideology. It just so happens that this little slice of the chronology contains some of Reinhardt's most interesting material, wonderfully evolved from the earlier Hot Club de France, yet filled with premonitions of how jazz would come to sound ten or even 20 years later. Hubert Rostaing was an inventive clarinetist, sounding something like Marshall Royal, and is featured on most of these sides…

Welcome to Fairyland: Queer Miami before 1940

Welcome to Fairyland: Queer Miami before 1940 by Julio Capó Jr.
English | October 3rd, 2017 | ASIN: B06Y3GFBZD, ISBN: 1469635208, 1469635194 | 436 pages | EPUB | 6.57 MB

Poised on the edge of the United States and at the center of a wider Caribbean world, today's Miami is marketed as an international tourist hub that embraces gender and sexual difference. As Julio Capo Jr. shows in this fascinating history, Miami's transnational connections reveal that the city has been a queer borderland for over a century. In chronicling Miami's queer past from its 1896 founding through 1940, Capo shows the multifaceted ways gender and sexual renegades made the city their own.

Eroe di guerra. Patriota. Ubriacone. Imperialista. Politico. Depresso. Scrittore. Visionario. Aristocratico. Voltagabbana. Pittore. Nel maggio del 1940 queste erano solo alcune delle «credenziali» con cui Winston Spencer Churchill si presentava alla Camera dei Comuni per assumere l'incarico di primo ministro del Regno Unito. La nazione era in guerra da otto mesi e le cose non stavano andando affatto bene. Più che un nuovo capo del governo, il paese invocava un condottiero, e pochi, in quei giorni cupi, avrebbero scommesso sull'ormai sessantacinquenne primo lord dell'Ammiragliato. Bastarono invece quattro settimane perché i sudditi di Sua Maestà scoprissero in lui il grande leader, l'uomo capace di commuovere e spronare, il comandante in grado di salvare l'esercito britannico dalla catastrofe di Dunkerque e di decidere così le sorti del conflitto…

Rise of the Modern Hospital: An Architectural History of Health and Healing, 1870-1940

Rise of the Modern Hospital: An Architectural History of Health and Healing, 1870-1940 by Jeanne Kisacky

Rise of the Modern Hospital is a focused examination of hospital design in the United States from the 1870s through the 1940s. This understudied period witnessed profound changes in hospitals as they shifted from last charitable resorts for the sick poor to premier locations of cutting-edge medical treatment for all classes, and from low-rise decentralized facilities to high-rise centralized structures.
