Beller-McKenna’s writing style is engaging, and his background material is comprehensive, with many sources in both historical and modern writings… A worthy contribution to Brahms scholarship, and to a better-rounded view of the composer’s life and work.—Virginia Hancock, Notes

Brahms and the German Spirit is…an earnest study of the subject of religion and nationalism in Brahms’s life. Daniel Beller-McKenna has woven a coherent tapestry from many strands.—Styra Avins, Music and Letters

Book Club Spotlight: The Privileged Poor

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
