              Why do musicians and music analysts deny that music is irreducibly social, or at least behave as if it isn't? The answer is itself socially specific. These writings examine the interaction between French popular music and French society, identity and culture.

              Over the last 20 years, since the building of three-dimensional models of oil and gas reservoirs became almost de rigeur, many books have been published on the geostatistics of model building and the design of reservoir models, but little has been written about the evaluation of ...those same reservoirs that require modelling. Geoscientists working in the hydrocarbon industry have focussed largely on the specialist tools that have been developed for interpreting modern data, while post graduate courses in Petroleum Geoscience and Engineering try to teach their students the necessary skills to transfer to the job market. This book combines the practical experience of nearly 40 years of reservoir evaluation including twenty years of geological modelling to provide an integrated approach to both the input data and the modelling results. The book draws on a public course developed for the Schlumberger NExT organisation in 2013 by the author, but is not an advert for one particular modelling philosophy or software solution. The successful characterization of an oil or gas field comprises data evaluation and often the construction of a static model prior to conducting dynamic simulation of how that reservoir might perform under different development scenarios and production regimes. The evaluation of a variety of different static and dynamic parameters is required before a meaningful model may be constructed: geophysical, geological and petrophysical interpretations are the elements required to build the static model, while fluid properties under different pressure and temperature condition are needed to define the dynamic response of the reservoir. The ultimate objective of a reservoir model is to establish the volumes of hydrocarbons that may be trapped within a geological structure and then what proportion might be recovered under different production scenarios. Key to this evaluation is an understanding of the uncertainty associated with the acquisition and interpretatio

              In France during the 1960s and 1970s, popular music became a key component of socio-cultural modernisation as the music/record industry became increasingly important in both economic and cultural terms in response to demographic changes and the rise of the modern media. As France... began questioning traditional ways of understanding politics and culture before and after May 1968, music as popular culture became an integral part of burgeoning media activity. Press, radio and television developed free from de Gaulle's state domination of information, and political activism shifted its concerns to the use of regional languages and regional cultures, including the safeguard of traditional popular music against the centralising tendencies of the Republican state. The cultural and political significance of French music was again revealed in the 1990s, as French-language music became a highly visible example of France's quest to maintain her cultural 'exceptionalism' in the face of the perceived globalising hegemony of English and US business and cultural imperialism. Laws were passed instituting minimum quotas of French-language music. The 1980s and 1990s witnessed developing issues raised by new technologies, as compact discs, the minitel telematics system, the internet and other innovations in radio and television broadcasting posed new challenges to musicians and the music industry. These trends and developments are the subject of this volume of essays by leading scholars across a range of disciplines including French studies, musicology, cultural and media studies and film studies. It constitutes the first attempt to provide a complete and up-to-date overview of the place of popular music in modern France and the reception of French popular music abroad.
