Welcome to my Blog

Hello there!

My name is Barry Seldes. Welcome to my blog!

I'm most interested in how political power and social forces affect artistic and creative expression. To that end I've written a book, Leonard Bernstein: The Political Life of an American Musician, to be published by University of California Press in May, 2009.* I will be happy to engage with you, and/or moderate discussions, on issues raised in and/or about my book. However, I hope that we will comment on all kinds of cultural-political matters of importance. I look forward to interesting discussions and debates. I also invite you to post items that complement our forum.
