Also, AP World students, don’t forget the summer reading assignment (click here). More generally, I am sponsoring two books as part of the all-school (Upper School) summer reading program: (1) Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene and (2) Benazir Bhutto’s Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy, and the West.

milesdavis_sketchesofspain_cmMy article, based on the Open Gates lecture I gave this year re: Arab music, was published by All About Jazz. It is called the Arab Roots of Miles Davis’ Sketches of Spain. I’m working on a second article with a jazz theme: “Paris Blues: Jazz and the City of Lights” (click here).
