THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC draws on the strengths of author Craig Wright’s larger volumes--outstanding listening pedagogy, clear writing, state-of-the-art online ancillaries--and delivers them in a style that is designed to connect with today’s students and inspire a lifelong appreciation of music. In this concise book, scholar and master-teacher Wright focuses on the key concepts and works presented within a typical Music Appreciation course, avoids lengthy discussions on side topics, and includes a set of integrated digital resources that make it easier--and fun--for students to master the material. THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC is approximately 60 percent shorter than the large volume and is priced much lower than our larger texts. This chronological text discusses musical examples from each historical period, each discussed within its social context. This provides students with a sense of a piece’s construction, as well as its historical and cultural meaning. THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC includes a wide range of resources designed to develop listening skills and challenge students: a free Introduction to Listening CD, packaged with each copy of the text; Listening Exercises built into the book and online (unique to Wright’s text); streaming music ; computer-enhanced Active Listening Guides; and listening quizzes for all of the music in the text. All of these are included within CourseMate--for use with or without your school’s LMS. Students can download all of the music that is covered in the text -- directly to a music library -- using the Sony Music Download Card that is bound into the book. A full set of lecture-based digital resources provides you with the tools you need to prepare for class, and an optional two-CD set is also available. As an instructor, you can also customize THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC to fit your specific needs by including pop and global music from the larger edition of LISTENING TO MUSIC.

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality. With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them... A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, Career of Evil is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

**Music in Mainland Southeast Asia is one of several case-study volumes that can be used along with Thinking Musically, the core book in the Global Music Series. Thinking Musically incorporates music from many diverse cultures and establishes the framework for exploring the practice of music around the world. It sets the stage for an array of case-study volumes, each of which focuses on a single area of the world. Each case study uses the contemporary musical situation as a point of departure, covering historical information and traditions as they relate to the present.** Mainland Southeast Asia is a culturally diverse and musically intriguing area, yet the ethnomusicological record lacks coverage of many of its musical and cultural traditions. Placing the music of this region within a social, cultural, and historical context, Music in Mainland Southeast Asia is the first brief, stand-alone volume to profile the under-represented musical traditions of Burma, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. It also contains the first introduction to Burmese music ever presented in a music textbook. Drawing on his extensive fieldwork, author Gavin Douglas frames this survey of Southeast Asian music within three key themes: * Music and diversity * Music and political turmoil * Music and globalization Each theme lends itself to a discussion of the region's classical musical traditions, folk traditions, and contemporary developments. Uniquely focusing on the people who practice these musical traditions--rather than the locales from which the traditions originate--the text also follows individuals out of their native lands and into diasporic communities throughout the world. A vibrant, thorough introduction, Music in Mainland Southeast Asia is ideal for introductory undergraduate courses in world music or ethnomusicology and for upper-level courses in Southeast Asian music or Southeast Asian culture. Packaged with a 70-minute CD containing musical examples, the text features numerous listening activities that actively engage students with the music and the themes. The companion website (www.oup.com/us/globalmusic) includes supplementary materials for instructors.

We form art. Art forms us. The title of this book has a dual meaning. As humans form works of art, we are in turn formed by what we create. The art world constantly evolves, as today's artists interpret, challenge, and ultimately create the world around them. The 11th edition of Prebles' Artforms reflects this dynamic environment; it is one of the most exhaustive revisions in the book's history. Three recent trends drive this edition: changing pedagogical needs, new scholarly research, and recent creativity by artists around the world. MyArtsLab is an integral part of the Prebles' Artforms program. Engaging activities and assessment provide a teaching and learning system that helps students experience and interact with art. Key learning tools include ART 21 videos, Studio Technique videos, and our hallmark Closer Look tours of works of art. Teaching and Learning Experience This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. It: Personalizes Learning with MyArtsLab: The new MyArtsLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, and provides engaging experiences that personalize learning. Provides Thematic Exploration: Help students explore the reasons for creating art, the motivation for individual artists, and how art impacts its audience. Emphasizes Critical Thinking: Chapter opening-Thinking Ahead questions encourage students to focus and think critically about the issues to come. Focuses on Art Today: More than 175 new images reflect the author's view that contemporary art provides the best path to art appreciation because of its currency and global nature.
