"Over the past several decades the countries of Southeast Asia have reverberated to the music of superstars like Indonesia's Rhoma Irama and Iwan Fals, the Filipino singer-songwriters Freddie Aguilar and Joey Ayala. Thailand groups Caravan and Carabao, and the Malaysian rock group Kembara. Along with many lesser known artists, they articulated the views of powerless citizens and provided a critical discourse on national and international affairs. Some were even identified with mass based sociopolitical movements seeking change. Popular musicians were at the forefront of the Thai democracy movement of the mid-1970s, the agitation leading to the abdication of the Marcos dictatorship in the mid-1980s, and the debate over inequality, corruption, and the role of Islam in Indonesia.

The piano accordion experienced a roller coaster ride of popularity--rise to fame on the airwaves, stage and silver screen, then a deathly decline, followed by a pop culture resurgence. Squeeze This! rolls out a history of the squeezebox with the first book-length study of its fascinating role in twentieth-century American music and culture. Focusing on key moments of transition, ethnomusicologist and accordion enthusiast Marion Jacobson shows how the instrument came to be celebrated by ethnic musical communities and mainstream fans alike. She also explores the accordion's rebirth in contemporary music, from the parodies of "Weird Al" Yankovic to geek rock legends They Might Be Giants to accordion-wielding superstars like Bruce Springsteen and Sheryl Crow. Loaded with images of gorgeous instruments, virtuoso performers, and rabid fans, Squeeze This! presents the untold story of America's rich accordion culture.

Focusing on the tragic corrido with its stories of heroic mortal encounter, McDowell examines the intersection of poetry and violence from three perspectives. He explores the contention that poetry celebrates violence, perhaps thereby perpetuating it, by glorifying for receptive audiences the deeds of past heroes. He discerns a regulatory voice within the corrido that places violent behavior within the confines of a moral universe, distinguishing legitimate from illegitimate forms of violence. Finally, he contends that poetry can be a healing force that helps sustain the community in the wake of violent events.
