Reading is the work of the alert mind, is demanding, and under ideal conditions produces finally a sort of ecstasy.
— E.B. White

The addition of snatches of music to his history of the United States startled the admirers of Samuel Eliot Morison, but as someone who was the least Harvard professor to arrive for classes on horseback, author of 15 volumes of American World War II naval history, and recipient of 11 honorary doctorates, he wasn’t anyone to quarrel with. Moreover, although his effort in incorporating lyrics was modest, he certainly was right that it is impossible in these times to study a society without reference to its arts. PSO publishes the Popular Culture Review as one of its contributions to the expanding conversation about the place of the arts in scholarship, as well as Sculpture Review. Just what the contributions of rousing marches like the Battle Hymn of the Republic have made to military history or the Star Spangled Banner to patriotism, or the Ode to Joy to the European Community will be for our scholar readers to decide. In any event, the Westphalia music collection permits purchase of multiple copies of scarce titles should a choir or lodge be looking for copies that will not assault the pocketbook.

塞缪尔·艾略特·莫里森(Samuel Eliot Morison)的美国历史增添了音乐片段,这让其崇拜者感到震惊,不过,作为最不可能骑马来上课的哈佛教授,15卷美国二战海军史的作者,以及11个荣誉博士学位的获得者,他不是好争论的人。此外,尽管他在编写歌词方面的努力是微不足道的,但他显然是正确的——在这个时代,不参考艺术就不可能研究一个社会。政策研究组织(PSO)出版了《大众文化评论》,以期就艺术的学术地位扩大交流,《雕塑评论》也是如此。《共和国战歌》这样鼓舞人心的进行曲对军事历史的贡献如何,或者《星条旗之歌》对爱国主义的贡献如何,抑或是《欢乐颂》对欧洲共同体的贡献如何,都将由我们的学者兼读者来决定。无论如何,如果合唱团或分会希望获得经济实惠的副本,威斯特伐利亚出版社的音乐图书馆允许购买多份稀有著作副本。
