When MTV (Music Television channel) was established in 1981, an executive claimed that they had "integrated the most powerful forces in our two decades, TV and rock 'n' roll." In fact, this problematic relationship began in the mid-1950s, when the advent of rock 'n' roll represented a musical and cultural revolution. The backlash against the music and the youth culture from which it emanated, described here as "rockaphobia," was reflected in a process of adulteration, racism, and co-optation by television programmers, spearheaded by American Bandstand. This interplay between rock 'n' roll and television played a significant role in alienating baby boomers from the mainstream, motivating them to create their own countercultural identity. This social migration helped to delineate the boundaries that would be identified in the 1960s as the generation gap. Transmission and Transgression uses an interdisciplinary approach informed by media ecology, the theoretical framework which recognizes that each communication technology, or medium, creates its own unique environment, independent of content. This analysis allows the author to identify inherent technological and sensory incompatibilities between the medium of television and the cultural practice of rock 'n' roll, and to place these tensions within the broader shift of physiological emphasis from the traditional, tribal world dominated by the ear to the modern world which privileges the eye. Even in its remediated, diluted form, rock music has occupied a significant niche on television, and this book is the most comprehensive summary, celebration, and analysis of that history.

This volume aims at exploring the reinvention of philosophy, literature and science in the early modern era to show how writers and readers collectively engaged in redefining the transmission of knowledge, whether ancient or newly discovered. In its first section, the contributors deal with religious, ideological and philosophical issues; in the second, they tackle art and science, while, in the third, they provide new insights about travelling and the circulation of ideas. These ten chapters thus relate transmission to the fundamental role of transgression by considering English writers and their challenging ideas in the context of their engagement with a flowering print market. The importance of public discourse as well as of memory and tradition, along with the need for renewal and reform which redefined England’s identity, are therefore being explored here. As the book refines on previous generalisations on the interacting concepts of transmission and transgression in early modern England, it also addresses the following questions: is there such a thing as a specifically English transgressive aesthetics? Can it be seen as a philosophy? Eventually, does transgression necessarily deny its own sources?

All narratives undergo some form of narrative transmission. Narratives of Transmission examines the storytelling process structured between the fictional universe of the text and the reader. By focusing on narratives that dramatize the medium of their telling--letters, diaries, memoirs, transcribed oral narrations, and the editorial prefaces that enframe them--the present volume uncovers dynamics of textuality that have long been overlooked by critics who have pursued the interpretation of narrative works at the expense of the processes of signification operations in narration. By studying these special cases of narrative transfer, Bernard Duyfhuizen brings the reader to a clearer understanding of how the acts of transmission and framing within the literary text can affect the production of meaning. Drawing on the theories of Gerard Genette, Roland Barthes, Mikhail Bakhtin, Seymour Chatman, Susan Lanser, and Peter Brooks, Duyfhuizen develops the first extended reading of the code of communication in narrative poetics and of the force exerted by the medium of transmission on the reader's structuration of the literary text. This provocative study of the different acts and conditions of narrative transmission establishes a new ontological plane for the study and interpretation of prose fiction. By examining the various narrational filters through which a story must pass, Narratives of Transmission uncovers the interpretively rich problematics of narrative textuality. Duyfhuizen's study goes beyond narratological description to provide interpretive readings that engage the mirrored play of transmission metaphors and metonymies in both the stories and the discourses of narrative fiction from the classical epic to the postmodern. These exemplary readings reveal, on the one hand, the power of transmission devices in the production of a particular version of the narrated events and the inescapable gap between the object of representation and its textual representation; while on the other hand, these readings display the negotiation of the different acts of reading encoded in the text and engaged at the outer frame by the actual reader. After an introductory chapter detailing the theory of narrative transmission, Duyfhuizen explores the dynamics of transmission and transgression in epistolary fiction, the problematics of transmitting the "self" in diary fiction, and the inclusion of letters, diaries, and other documents in hybrid narratives of transmission. He then turns to the questions surrounding the framing devices of editorial prefaces and notes paratextually included in the fiction. Lastly, Duyfhuizen considers the textual dynamics of dialogism in narratives of transcribed oral narrations.

Contributors to this volume examine the question of transmission and of the educational procedures in16th- and 17th-century England by emphasizing deviant practices that questioned, reassessed or even challenged pre-established cultural norms and traditions. Chapters analyse how the interrelated processes of initiation, transmission and transgression operated at the heart of early modern culture, and how poets and playwrights appropriated these cultural processes in their works.

Theology of the Old Testament

"Gustav Oehler's Theology of the Old Testament is helpful to ministers and biblical students due to its subject, its wide range of thought, the thoroughness with which the topics are examined and discussed, and the positive results to which the author arrives. Oehler focuses on the supernatural character and gradual progress of revelation in the Old Testament. He is able to embrace the whole field of Israel's history in its connection with the founding of a kingdom of God among men and weaves the whole into a thorough unity of which the final expression is Christ. The paramount character of the Theology of the Old Testament is the clear exhibition of God's revelation of Himself and the divine manner in which men were educated for the coming of Christ and the truths which He came to teach. In the careful tracing of these thoughts, as revealed in facts and by words in the Old Testament, Oehler has presented the theology of the Old Testament in a form which at one and the same time meets the demands of theological science and the practical wants of the Christian believer. He has produced a work which stands, as Dr. Schaff has said, "at the head of this department of biblical study"--Logos Bible Software.
