About the book:

Albert Glinsky's "Theremin" blends the whimsical and the treacherous into a chronicle that takes in everything from the KGB to Macy's store windows, Alcatraz to the Beach Boys, Hollywood thrillers to the United Nations, Joseph Stalin to Shirley Temple. "Theremin"'s world of espionage and invention is an amazing drama of hidden loyalties, mixed motivations, and an irrepressibly creative spirit. Albert Glinsky is an award-winning composer whose music has been performed throughout the U.S., Europe, and the Far East.He holds degrees from The Juilliard School and a Ph.D. from New York University, and his work has been honored by the National Endowment for the Arts, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He is Composer-in-Residence and Professor of Music at Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania. Robert Moog developed the original classic Moog electronic music synthesizer and has been designing and building theremins since 1954. Currently, he is the president of Moog Music Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of theremins. This is a volume in the series "Music in American Life".
