Ishmael Reed's inspired comic fable of the ragtime era - hailed by Harold Bloom as one of the five hundred greatest books of the Western canon America, 1920s. A plague is spreading, and it's spreading fast, from New Orleans to Chicago to New York. It's an epidemic of freedom, joy and self-expression, being spread by Black artists, that makes anyone who catches it desperate to dance, sing, laugh and jive. It's the outbreak of Jazz, Ragtime and Blues onto the world scene; the spirit of Blackness overtaking America and the world. And it's threatening to dismantle the whole social order. Working to root out the plague by any means possible - even murder - are the members of The Wallflower Order, an international conspiracy dedicated to puritanism and control. But, deep in the heart of Harlem, private eye and Vodun priest Papa LaBas is determined to defend his flourishing ancient culture against their insidious plans. And so, he finds himself locked in a race against the Order to find an ancient Egyptian text which might just be the key to keeping the virus of freedom alive. Caustic, badass, comic, Mumbo Jumbo is an exuberant explosion of magic, conspiracies, music and myth. It's a novel of outrage, intrigue, and wonder - an anarchic spiritual classic, and a satire for our times.

"Let's face it: educators speak a language all their own filled with complicated words, terms and acronyms. They call it 'Educationese' but to parents and caregivers, it's just Mumbo Jumbo. This book uses the principles of broadcast journalism to help educators recognize and translate Mumbo Jumbo into clear, concise, effective communications. It's designed to help them form rich relationships with parents and caregivers. Readers will learn how to use the right words, tone and body language to engage families. [This] is not a typical education book. It is short, simple, practical and easy to read. It's no wonder. It was written by a former broadcast journalist with a passion for families and for translating Educationese"--Page [4] of cover.

How Mumbo Jumbo Conquered The World

What characterizes our era? Cults, quacks, gurus, irrational panics, moral confusion and an epidemic of mumbo-jumbo, that's what. In How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World, Francis Wheen brilliantly laments the extraordinary rise of superstition, relativism and emotional hysteria. From Middle Eastern fundamentalism to the rise of lotteries, astrology to mysticism, poststructuralism to the Third Way, Wheen shows that there has been a pervasive erosion of Enlightenment values, which have been displaced by nonsense. And no country has a more vivid parade of the bogus and bizarre than the one founded to embody Enlightenment values: the USA. In turn comic, indignant, outraged, and just plain baffled by the idiocy of it all, How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World is a masterful depiction of the absurdity of our times and a plea that we might just think a little more and believe a little less.

A cute song about a little boy named Mumbo who loves to ride on Jumbo the elephant. The G minor theme consists of half-notes and quarter-notes only and the hands play separately throughout the piece. Dynamics from piano to forte are explored and the melody fades out softly in the left-hand at the end.
