Written during her time as the inaugural fellow in the Beckett archive last year, Eimear McBride's three short, characteristically brilliant plays - collected in one work, Mouthpieces. Each play depicts a fragment of female experience, all of them told in in Eimear's vivid, original and sharp-witted style. In 'The Adminicle Exists', we hear the inner voice of a woman who saves her troubled, dangerous partner; in 'An Act of Violence', a woman is quizzed about her reaction to a man's death; in 'The Eye Machine', the character 'Eye' tells of her imprisonment, flickering through a slideshow of female stereotypes.

This is the first comprehensive study of the trombone in English. It covers the instrument, its repertoire, the way it has been played, and the social, cultural, and aesthetic contexts within which it has developed. The book explores the origins of the instrument, its invention in the fifteenth century, and its story up to modern times, also revealing hidden aspects of the trombone in different eras and countries. The book looks not only at the trombone within classical music but also at its place in jazz, popular music, popular religion, and light music. Trevor Herbert examines each century of the trombone's development and details the fundamental impact of jazz on the modern trombone. By the late twentieth century, he shows, jazz techniques had filtered into the performance idioms of almost all styles of music and transformed ideas about virtuosity and lyricism in trombone playing.

Excerpt from The Effect of Mouthpieces on the Flow of Water Through a Submerged Short Pipe Comparatively little experimental work has been done to de termine the value of conical mouthpieces of various angles and lengths in reducing the lost head at the entrance to and discharge from a submerged pipe, particularly for mouthpieces of the sizes and pro portions comparable with those met in engineering practice. The need for such experiments is, therefore, apparent. The minimizing of the lost head due to the contraction and expansion of a stream may be of considerable importance in a variety of hydraulic prob lems; for example, the intake to a pipe particularly when the pipe is of Short length and of large diameter, the suction and discharge pipes of a low head pump, the reduction or expansion from one pipe to another of different diameter or of different Shape, the passages through a large valve, the passages through locomotive water columns, the draft tube to a turbine, the connection from a centrifugal pump to a main, the sluice ways through dams, the slat screens at head gates, culverts and short tunnels, jet pumps, the Boyden diffuser as formerly used for the outward ow turbine, the Venturi meter, the suction and discharge pipes of dredges, and the guide vanes and run ner of a turbine.

First to be published in the series was The Art of French Horn Playing by Philip Farkas, now Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Music at Indiana University. In 1956, when Summy-Birchard published Farkas's book, he was a solo horn player for the Chicago Symphony and had held similar positions with other orchestras, including the Boston Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, and Kansas City Conservatory, DePaul University, Northwestern University, and Roosevelt University in Chicago. The Art of French Horn Playing set the pattern, and other books in the series soon followed, offering help to students in learning to master their instruments and achieve their goals.
