During the decades leading up to 1910, Portugal saw vast material improvements under the guise of modernization while in the midst of a significant political transformation - the establishment of the Portuguese First Republic. Urban planning, everyday life, and innovation merged in a rapidly changing Lisbon. Leisure activities for the citizens of the First Republic began to include new forms of musical theater, including operetta and the revue theater. These theatrical forms became an important site for the display of modernity, and the representation of a new national identity. Author João Silva argues that the rise of these genres is inextricably bound to the complex process through which the idea of Portugal was presented, naturalized, and commodified as a modern nation-state. Entertaining Lisbon studies popular entertainment in Portugal and its connections with modern life and nation-building, showing that the promotion of the nation through entertainment permeated the market for cultural goods. Exploring the Portuguese entertainment market as a reflection of ongoing negotiations between local, national, and transnational influences on identity, Silva intertwines representations of gender, class, ethnicity, and technology with theatrical repertoires, street sounds, and domestic music making. An essential work on Portuguese music in the English language, Entertaining Lisbon is a critical study for scholars and students of musicology interested in Portugal, and popular and theatrical musics, as well as historical ethnomusicologists, cultural historians, and urban planning researchers interested in the development of material culture.

In the wake of the ratification of the Constitution of Lisbon, the European Union must now also contend with the central question of a living democracy. Whereas during the French Revolution there was extensive bloodshed, today a new civilized culture of citizen participation has emerged: the European Citizens' Initiative. The initiative allows Europeans the formidable opportunity to actively participate in the shaping of their Union, to get involved and to be heard. The book is not merely a plea for a European Citizen's participation movement. Instead, by offering practical suggestions, it serves as a tangible guide for anyone planning a European-wide initiative. The book is completed by concrete recommendations to the European Union for promoting and monitoring a trans-European initiative. The book also pays special attention to the use of new media in the citizen participation process.
