Through primary documents, jazz historian Lewis Porter introduces the major topics in the history of jazz. Interviews, articles, and other writings explore the key issues in jazz over the past hundred years, including the struggle to define 'jazz' and to locate its origins; race politics in the 1950s and 1960s; and the more recent debates over Traditionalism and Revivalism.
Offering practical advice and stories from scientists and professionals, this guidebook aids the reader in evaluating and finding career opportunities in non-academic research fields. It demonstrates that choices are available, providing many examples of fields (for example publishing, law, public policy and business) in which people can use their scientific training to nurture a satisfying professional life. Yet it also acknowledges that there are trade-offs involved with any veer from the traditional path.
