Rock it Come Over describes the music and lore of slavery from the early sixteenth century through emancipation in 1838 to the mid twentieth century. Lewin explores the role of music in the lives of the slaves as a method of communication, as a form of resistance and subversion, as a repository of oral history and beliefs, and, ultimately, as a means of survival.

Seismic measurements take many forms, and have a universal role in the earth sciences. There are huge rewards to be gained from ‘seeing’ below the earth’s surface. This unique book describes seismic behaviour at many scales, and provides the appropriate interpretation in terms of rock mechanics.
Reviewing examples of seismic measurements from numerous fields in civil, mining, petroleum, geophysics, and tectonophysics, and stretching over ten orders of magnitude, the book considers seismic measurements from microcrack compliance in laboratory tests samples to crustal and mid-ocean ridge measurements, where the emphasis is on velocity-depth-age models. Between these extremes, Dr Barton covers in situ block tests, borehole stability, dam and bridge foundations, quarry blasting, transportation tunnels, rock caverns, nuclear waste repository studies and mine openings. The approach is cross-disciplinary and deliberately non-mathematical and phenomenological in nature, with a wealth of figures and a wide review of the literature from many earth science fields.
