REVISED, UPDATED AND WITH A NEW FOREWORD BY PAUL ABBOTT This edition of Suburban 100 includes new lyrics from the critically acclaimed albums, 22 Dreams and Wake Up the Nation, which has been nominated for the Mercury Music Award. Paul Weller first burst onto the national music scene with The Jam in 1977 and was quickly marked apart from his contemporaries as a brilliant lyricist. In a writing career that has now spanned three decades, his songs have been acclaimed, imitated and loved by many. Suburban 100 - the first selection of Paul Weller's lyrics - draws on songs written for The Jam, The Style Council and solo releases that, together, tell stories of life and love, rage and romance. The youthful frustrations of small-town life that fuelled Weller's early writing is palpable, as is the angry but poignant response to Thatcher's Britain. His lyrics, rooted in English suburban culture, explore the hopes, dreams and crashing disappointments of ordinary people. They also revel in the mystical beauty of the English country landscape and repeatedly revisit dreamlike childhood summers. For the first time Paul Weller shares his reflections on his lyrics, offering candid insights to his writing process and the inspiration behind some of pop music's best loved songs. Suburban 100 reveals aspects of a famously private man.

Walls Come Tumbling Down charts the pivotal period between 1976 and 1992 that saw politics and pop music come together for the first time in Britain's musical history; musicians and their fans suddenly became instigators of social change, and 'the political persuasion of musicians was as important as the songs they sang'. Through the voices of campaigners, musicians, artists and politicians, Daniel Rachel follows the rise and fall of three key movements of the time: Rock Against Racism, 2 Tone, and Red Wedge, revealing how they all shaped, and were shaped by, the music of a generation. Composed of interviews with over a hundred and fifty of the key players at the time, Walls Come Tumbling Down is a fascinating, polyphonic and authoritative account of those crucial sixteen years in Britain's history.

Details the paradigms of opportunistic spectrum sharing andwhite space access as effective means to satisfy increasing demandfor high-speed wireless communication and for novel wirelesscommunication applications This book addresses opportunistic spectrum sharing and whitespace access, being particularly mindful of practicalconsiderations and solutions. In Part I, spectrum sharingimplementation issues are considered in terms of hardware platformsand software architectures for realization of flexible andspectrally agile transceivers. Part II addresses practicalmechanisms supporting spectrum sharing, including spectrum sensingfor opportunistic spectrum access, machine learning and decisionmaking capabilities, aggregation of spectrum opportunities, andspectrally-agile radio waveforms. Part III presents the ongoing work on policy and regulation forefficient and reliable spectrum sharing, including major recentsteps forward in TV White Space (TVWS) regulation and associatedgeolocation database approaches, policy management aspects, andnovel licensing schemes supporting spectrum sharing. In Part IV,business and economic aspects of spectrum sharing are considered,including spectrum value modeling, discussion of issues arounddisruptive innovation that are pertinent to opportunistic spectrumsharing and white space access, and business benefits assessment ofthe novel spectrum sharing regulatory proposal Licensed SharedAccess. Part V discusses deployments of opportunistic spectrumsharing and white space access solutions in practice, includingwork on TVWS system implementations, standardization activities,and development and testing of systems according to thestandards. Discusses aspects of pioneering standards such as the IEEE802.22 “Wi-Far” standard, the IEEE 802.11af“White-Fi” standard, the IEEE Dynamic Spectrum AccessNetworks Standards Committee standards, and the ETSIReconfiguration Radio Systems standards Investigates regulatory and regulatory-linked solutionsassisting opportunistic spectrum sharing and white space access,including geo-location database approaches and licensingenhancements Covers the pricing and value of spectrum, the economic effectsand potentials of such technologies, and provides detailed businessassessments of some particularly innovative regulatoryproposals The flexible and efficient use of radio frequencies is necessary tocater for the increasing data traffic demand worldwide. This bookaddresses this necessity through its extensive coverage ofopportunistic spectrum sharing and white space accesssolutions. Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing and White Space Access: ThePractical Reality is a great resource fortelecommunication engineers, researchers, and students.
