... Allen b. 1932, Newark, New Jersey, USA. A name synonymous with ‘notorious’, Allen Klein has a reputation as one of the most litigious, and thus feared, entrepreneurs in the music business. He spent his formative years at a Hebrew orphanage, then studied accountancy, paying for his own tuition along the way. During the early 60s, he took over the affairs of singer Buddy Knox and claimed to discover irregularities in the royalties he was due from his record company. The technique was habitual. Again and again, Klein would accost record companies, insist on...

.... The translator made use of the Greek version of Kings , possibly in a nonrevised form (Shenkel). The text of the supplements in 2 Paraleipomena 35–36 is taken from the old, nonrevised Greek of Kings , or at least from an old pre-Lucianic recension (Klein). G. Gerleman and L. C. Allen argue, rather, in favor of a secondary assimilation of both Greek versions. A “Prayer of Manasseh, king of Judah, when the king of Assyria put him in prison” is among the Noncanonical Psalms found at Qumran (4Q381, frg. 33.8; cf. 2 Chr. 33 ). The Second Book...

...Alpine yodeling in their blackface skits. In turn, a series of plays, the first of which was The Adventures of Fritz, Our Cousin-German ( 1870 ), popularized the comedic Dutch character yodeling in nostalgic songs and character pieces. Playing the starring role of Fritz, Joseph Klein Emmet performed his notable yodel songs, “Lullaby,” “Cuckoo Song,” and “Sauerkraut is Bully.” In the late 1890s, the following generation of vaudevillian performers, particularly George P. Watson, were the first to record Emmet's music and other 19th-century yodel standards. Early...

...participation of private actors in development and recovery processes has been flagged as an expansion of neoliberal tendencies ( Gunewardena & Schuller, 2008 ; Klein, 2007 ; Schuller & Maldonado, 2016 ). Klein defines this as disaster capitalism , where disasters and catastrophic events become opportunities for orchestrated raids on the public sphere and blatant market opportunities ( Klein, 2007 ). Areas debilitated by the impact of disaster are fertile ground for implementing neoliberal policies during times of severe crisis because they demand quick...
