A recent issue of Polygraph: An International Journal of Politics and Culture is devoted largely to musical issues from a materialist, Leftist, in some cases Marxist perspective. Please see the table of contents below. Parts of the issue are available on line, but the feature articles are not. Students, the unwaged, or readers where currency restrictions would prevent access, should contact me or the editors, Lidia Klein and Karim Wissa. The issue in hard copy is available from Duke University Press via the following email address: https://web.duke.edu/polygraph/ Once at that site, please see the list of issues at the top of the page. The issue includes a translation of a Marxist treatise on music by the Austrian musicologist and sociologist Kurt Blaukopf, writing under the pseudonym Hans Wind, which was published in 1935 with the following title: Die Endkrise der Burgerlichen Musik und die Rolle Arnold Schonbergs (umlauts omitted here). The work is notable in part as an early scholarly engagement with Adorno's thought. The German original is a rarity, and readers interested in it can contact me off list. Thanks are due the editors for the opportunity to publish the translation in its entirety in hard copy, and to Blaukopf's son for permission to do so.
