Song from the Land of Fire explores Azerbaijanian musical culture, a subject previously unexamined by American and European scholars. This book contains notations of mugham performance--a fusion of traditional poetry and musical improvisation--and analysis of hybrid genres, such as mugham-operas and symphonic mugham by native composers. Intimately connected to the awakening of Azerbaijanian national consciousness while ruled by the Russian Empire and the USSR, mugham is inseparable from the contexts in which it is produced and heard. Inna Naroditskaya provides the historical and political contexts for mugham and profiles the musicians, musical genealogies, and musical institutions of Azerbaijan.

Following the genre's development from classical times to the present, "Travel Writing: The Self and the World" shows how it has evolved and changed, yet is always centered on encounters between the self and the other and the mediation between the familiar and the foreign. Emphasis is placed on Anglo-American travel writing since the 18th century. Identifying significant theoretical and critical contributions to the field, Casey Blanton presents an engaging historical overview of travel writing and provides close readings of exemplary texts by six major figures: James Boswell, Mary Kingsley, Graham Greene, Peter Mathiessen, V.S. Naipaul, and Bruce Chatwin.
