The Wagner Compendium presents a comprehensive survey of the man, his oeuvre and his times. The musical and intellectual background and influences which helped shape the Wagnerian canon are considered in their historical and political contexts. Wagners character, opinions and behaviour are examined along with a special chapter on Myths and Legends, which wittily corrects the misconceptions with which he has become associated. Wagners musical and literary style are treated in depth, and his operas, orchestral and choral music analysed together with the lesser-known works for solo voice, the piano music, and the projected operas. Chapters on orchestration and Wagner in performance are complemented by accounts of the reception and influence of his music. The bibliography accompanies the most complete list ever published of his writings, speeches, open letters and reviews, as well as a glossary explaining the meanings of Wagnerian terms, a calendar of his life and a Whos Who of his contemporaries.

Confronting Animal Abuse presents a powerful examination of the human-animal relationship and the laws designed to protect it. Piers Beirne, a leading scholar in the growing field of green criminology, explores the heated topic of animal abuse in agriculture, science, and sport, as well as what is known, if anything, about the potential for animal assault to lead to inter-human violence. He convincingly shows how from its roots in the Irish plow-fields of 1635 through today, animal-rights legislation has been primarily shaped by human interest and why we must reconsider the terms of human-animal relationships. Beirne argues that if violations of animals' rights are to be taken seriously, then scholars and activists should examine why some harms to animals are defined as criminal, others as abusive but not criminal and still others as neither criminal nor abusive. Confronting Animal Abuse points to the need for a more inclusive concept of harms to animals, without which the meaning of animal abuse will be overwhelmingly confined to those harms that are regarded as socially unacceptable, one-on-one cases of animal cruelty. Certainly, those cases demand attention. But so, too, do those other and far more numerous institutionalized harms to animals, where abuse is routine, invisible, ubiquitous and often defined as socially acceptable. In this pioneering, pro-animal book Beirne identifies flaws in our traditional understanding of human-animal relationships, and proposes a compelling new approach.
