Most pop songs are short-lived. They appear suddenly and, if they catch on, seem to be everywhere at once before disappearing again into obscurity. Yet some songs resonate more deeply—often in ways that reflect broader historical and cultural changes. In Footsteps in the Dark, George Lipsitz illuminates these secret meanings, offering imaginative interpretations of a wide range of popular music genres from jazz to salsa to rock. Sweeping changes that only remotely register in official narratives, Lipsitz argues, can appear in vivid relief within popular music, especially when these changes occur outside mainstream white culture. Using a wealth of revealing examples, he discusses such topics as the emergence of an African American techno music subculture in Detroit as a contradictory case of digital capitalism and the prominence of banda, merengue, and salsa music in the 1990s as an expression of changing Mexican, Dominican, and Puerto Rican nationalisms. Approaching race and popular music from another direction, he analyzes the Ken Burns PBS series Jazz as a largely uncritical celebration of American nationalism that obscures the civil rights era’s challenge to racial inequality, and he takes on the infamous campaigns to censor hip-hop and the radical black voice in the early 1990s. Teeming with astute observations and brilliant insights about race and racism, deindustrialization, and urban renewal and their connections to music, Footsteps in the Dark puts forth an alternate history of post–cold war America and shows why in an era given to easy answers and clichd versions of history, pop songs matter more than ever. George Lipsitz is professor of black studies and sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Among his many books are Life in the Struggle, Dangerous Crossroads, and American Studies in a Moment of Danger (Minnesota, 2001).

NOW A LIFETIME MOVIE CHANNEL DOCUMENTARY It was a shocking true crime that left two families shattered, and became the coldest case in U.S. history. Who really killed little Maria? The question fueled a real-life nightmare in Sycamore, Illinois... 1957. Sycamore, Illinois. Christmas was three weeks away, and seven-year-old Maria Ridulph went out to play. Soon after, a figure emerged out of the falling snow. He was very friendly. Minutes later, Maria vanished, leaving behind an abandoned doll and footsteps in the snow. In April, a spring thaw gave up Maria’s body in a nearby wooded area. The case attracted national attention, including that of the FBI and President Eisenhower. In all, seventy-four men and three women fell under suspicion. But no one was ever charged with the crime. Incredibly, fifty-five years later, the coldest case in the history of American jurisprudence would be reopened. It happened after a seventy-four-year-old former neighbor of the Ridulphs named Eileen Tessier made a stunning deathbed confession to her family about a dark past, and a darker secret they knew nothing about. Two families would be joined by despair and retribution, and in an astounding turn of events, Maria Ridulph’s killer would finally be brought to justice. INCLUDES PHOTOGRAPHS

Musing in the Footsteps of Jesus beckons you to interact with the real and imaginary characters involved in events of Jesuss early ministry. Witness the life-changing effect on a tent maker and his two young sons as Jesus receives baptism in the Jordan River accompanied by the voice of God introducing him as his beloved son. Be with Jesus in a cave for forty days, preparing for the attack by Satan and his airborne, warring angels. Marvel at how a bear and an owl contribute to Jesuss survival. Enjoy the sense of humor of the fishermen who joke of the Messiah as their big catch. Later, as Jesuss full-time disciples, they cheerfully confess they are the ones enmeshed in a net. The wedding in Cana turns comical when a renowned chef finds the wine unworthy of his recipes. Jesuss new wine proves to be the best wine ever to touch the gourmets palate. A Pharisee ruler comes to Jesus at night. As the schooled priest asks Jesus of the secrets of heaven, the mans conflicting thoughts reveal his character and spirituality. The woman at Jacobs well appears to be a repentant sinner yearning for a Messiah. The vision Jesus sees of her past explains why he tells her, before all others, that he is the Christ. When a rich man asks Jesus how to get to heaven, Christ answers that he must part with his riches and serve him. The man leaves with a sad countenance. Hear the mystical voice from a whirlwind, see the rich mans fanciful flight on a horse to the moon, and you will understand why he chose to obey Jesus and serve him. This storyteller prays these dreams will increase your hunger for deeper understanding of the Holy Scriptures.

In the Footsteps of Rome is an epic tale that validates the United States’ vulnerability to a major attack by its enemies. The gripping story begins on the battlefields of the Middle East and Africa, where independent groups are fighting for the overthrow of their governments. A new, well-financed organization emerges with the objective of uniting these disparate groups into an effective jihadist force, having the ambitious goal of establishing a worldwide Muslim Caliphate. The organization’s effectiveness is enhanced by its acquisition of an advanced technology capable of inflicting significant damage on the United States. For the U.S., the end result, like that of Rome, is chaos and the erosion of its system of government. In the Footsteps of Rome reflects Philip Tarnoff’s first-hand knowledge of both government agencies and the private sector. His career experience includes work with state and federal agencies, most recently focusing on the operation of America’s highway transportation system, a pursuit for which he has received many awards. As our government pours large sums of money into defense while its infrastructure crumbles, it becomes increasingly clear that the U.S. is following the path of the Rome, whose investments in military superiority dwarfed expenditures on the Empire’s other critical needs. Tarnoff’s first book, The Road Ahead, which discussed necessary improvements in transportation operations, has received universal acclaim. It is now followed by this work of fiction, which exposes the weaknesses of a deteriorating society.
