The Academy Game On from the Author: Monica Seles. The Academy is an International Sports Mecca for teen athletes. There are only two ways in. Deep pockets or enough talent to score a scholarship. Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come true when she earns a scholarship to The Academy. Plucked from her small town, Maya moves to the sports training facility/boarding school to (hopefully) start the beginning of her pro career. But Maya's fantasy of The Academy doesn't quite match the reality. Because where there are hot, talented teens, there's a lot of drama. Meet the players: Nicole: A tennis star who feels threatened by Maya (but she'd never admit it). Cleo: Maya's rebel/punk roommate who is nearing the top of the golf world. Renee: The gorgeous swimmer with enough money to buy her way into The Academy. Travis: The son of The Academy owner--perfectly groomed to be the next NFL star. Jake: Travis' younger brother--the bad boy to his brother's good.

Art And The Academy In The Nineteenth Century from the Author: Rafael Cardoso Denis. Academies functioned as the main venues for the promotion, display and teaching of art throughout the 19th century. 20th-century opinion has tended to maintain a consipicuous silence on their account, except for the strategic employment of academicism as a term of abuse. The authors uncover the institutional structures and artistic practices of academies from London and Paris to Dusseldorf and Rio de Janeiro. By situating the efforts of individual artists and academies within the context of a network of global proportions, new insights are gained into the ways in which institutions of art helped shape the 19th century's view of itself as an age of equipoise and civilization amidst the turmoil of rapid social and cultural change.

Music Politics And The Academy from the Author: Pieter C. van den Toorn. Advocates of "new musicology" claim that technical methods of music analysis are conservative, elitist, positivist, and emotionally arid. Pieter C. van den Toorn challenges those claims, asking why cultural, sociopolitical, or gender-studies approaches to music should be deemed more democratic or expressive of music's content or impact. Why should music analysis be thought incapable of serving larger aesthetic ends? Van den Toorn confronts Susan McClary, Leo Treitler, and Joseph Kerman in particular, arguing that hands-on music analysis can penetrate the complexity of music and speak to our experience of it. He criticizes new musicologists for retreating from issues of musical immediacy by focusing on cultural issues. In later chapters van den Toorn defends Schenkerian methods and demonstrates the usefulness of technical analysis in the appreciation of Beethoven, Debussy, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky.

The Academy In Crisis from the Author: John W. Sommer. Assembling a methodical examination of government's pervasive involvement in higher education and academic research, The Academy in Crisis vividly shows that the real beneficiaries are middle- and upper-income students and the educational establishment itself, who exploit the rest of society, especially the poor. In a stimulating and innovative analysis, the book further traces the symptoms of academic decay to the perverse incentives facing those within the modern bureaucracies of higher education. The trashing of American higher education has become a growth sector in the intellectual marketplace. However, The Academy in Crisis shows that the problems run deeper than nostalgia for "the good old days." With government determining the contours of higher education, meaningful reform will never be successful until battle is waged with the resulting government-university complex.
