The Lennon companion : twenty-five years of comment( )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the spirit of a generation - in a fascinating collection of comments, reports, interviews, reflections, and memories of John Lennon and the Beatles. Their music, films, politics, lifestyles, and the culture they shaped are all here, in a never-before-available record of some 20 years of pop history. Ranging from the critical to the celebratory, the preposterous to the prophetic, these essays bring into sharper focus who John Lennon was and what his art was all about, written by commentators and in this portrait of a time so new and so much in change, Lennon emerges as a complex, difficult genius

21 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To this day, wherever great rock music is being made, there is the shadow of Bob Dylan," said Bruce Springsteen at the induction of Dylan into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. Or to quote John Rockwell, "Anyone who didn't live through the sixties simply cannot realize how important his albums seemed then; they defined a community." Dylan is a musical, literary, political, and religious icon whose lyrics and mystique have spawned countless articles and books. The Dylan Companion is a generous helping of the best, most pungent, and most insightful commentary on Dylan from all phases of his career right up to the present
Breaking bows and arrows by Elizabeth Thomson( Visual )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In all corners of the world, civil wars have been a fact of modern history. But what happens when the fighting stops, if for years neighbor has been killing neighbor? How do people on both sides deal with the legacy of loss, anger, pain, distrust and a desire for revenge? On the island of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea thousands of people were killed in a war of secession that grew from a local uprising against an Australian copper company. When the ten-year-old civil war ended in 1998, the islanders had to deal with the challenging emotional terrain of personal reconciliation. Breaking Bows and Arrows documents the islanders' road to forgiveness and healing, a process governed by their own cultural tradition. Perpetrators and victims came together in ceremonies to heal the wounds of division. In one of the largest gatherings, ex-fighters join with the families of those they have killed to participate in traditional peacemaking rituals. One man retrieves the bones of a chief he had shot, ceremonially returning then to the bereaved wife. He seeks a release from this heavy burden of guilt and remorse; she seeks a release from the hatred she feels
The Bowie companion( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite his vast influence and perennial popularity, David Bowie remains one of the most elusive figures in rock, and few books have taken a serious look at his remarkable career. The Bowie Companion provides an entertaining overview of nearly three decades of popular culture commentary, giving full weight to his stage, screen, and musical careers. From both American and English publications, the editors have come up with some astonishing selections, and have added to them a slew of new material. Included are: Leslie Thomas's hilarious local newspaper story on little Davy Jones (Bowie's original name) and his campaign to defend "those who wear their hair long"; Patti Smith's poem/review of Heroes; Gordon Burn's backstage look at The Elephant Man; Wilfrid Mellers's musical analysis of Hunky Dory; Anne Rice on Bowie's ambiguous gender; Jon Savage on Bowie's relationship to the mainstream; a strange conversation between Bowie and William Burroughs; three acerbic reviews by the immortal Lester Bangs; contributions from Marc Bolan, Simon Frith, Pauline Kael, John Rockwell, and Ellen Willis, among others; a lengthy introduction, a select discography, and an extensive bibliography. Taken together, they make up a book that is a must for Bowie fans, and a perfect companion for anyone interested in the phenomenon of pop stardom
