For anyone who has been intimidated, overwhelmed, or just plain confused by what they think opera is, Who's Afraid of Opera? offers a lively, readable, and frankly biased guide to what author Michael Walsh describes as "the greatest art form yet invented by humankind." From opera's origins in Renaissance Italy to the Who's Tommy and Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, Walsh explores what opera is - and what it's not; which is more important - the words or the music?; why does it take Tristan so long to die?; a (Not Quite) Totally Arbitrary Basic Repertoire; and what makes a great singer. So curtain up! It's time to settle into your seat, close up your program, and watch the house lights go down. And get ready for the musical ride of your lives

The devil's pleasure palace : the cult of critical theory and the subversion of the West by Michael Walsh( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the aftermath of World War II, America stood alone as the world's premier military power. Yet its martial confidence contrasted vividly with its sense of cultural inferiority. Still looking to a defeated and dispirited the burgeoning transnational elite in New York and Washington embraced not only the war's refugees, but many of their ideas as well, and nothing has proven more pernicious than those of the Frankfurt School and its reactionary philosophy of "critical theory." In The Devil's Pleasure Palace, Michael Walsh describes how Critical Theory released a horde of demons into the American psyche. When everything could be questioned, nothing could be real, and the muscular, confident empiricism that has just won the war gave way, in less than a generation, to a central-European nihilism celebrated on college campuses across the United States. Seizing the high ground of academe and the arts, the New Nihilists set about dissolving the bedrock of the country, from patriotism to marriage to the family to military service. They has sown, as Cardinal Bergoglio--now Pope Francis--once wrote of the Devil, "destruction, division, hatred, and calumny," and all disguised as the search for truth. The Devil's Pleasure Palace exposes the overlooked movement that is Critical Theory and explains how it took root in America and, once established and gestated how it has affected nearly every aspect of American life and society"--Dust jacket flap

Last stands : why men fight when all is lost by Michael Walsh( Book )

3 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walsh does a service to patriots everywhere. His must-read book allows the reader to work 'the why' around in his mind'and come to an understanding of real heroism.' 'Steve Bannon Award-winning author Michael Walsh celebrates the masculine attributes of heroism that forged American civilization and Western culture by exploring historical battles where soldiers chose death over dishonor for the greater good in Last Stands: Why Men Fight When All Is Lost. In our contemporary era, men are increasingly denied their heritage as warriors. A survival instinct that's part of the human condition, the drive to wage war is natural. Without war, the United States would not exist. The technology that has eased manual labor, extended lifespans, and become an integral part of our lives and culture evolved from wartime scientific advancements. War is necessary to defend the social and political principles that define the virtues and freedoms of America and other Western nations. We should not be ashamed of the heroes who sacrificed their lives to build a better world. We should be honoring them. The son of a Korean War veteran who engaged in the against all odds action of the Chosin Reservoir Campaign with the U.S. Marine Corps, Michael Walsh knows all about heroism, valor, and the call of duty that requires men to fight for something greater than themselves to protect their families, fellow countrymen, and way of life. In Last Stands, Walsh reveals the causes and outcomes of more than a dozen battles throughout history where a small fighting force refused to surrender to their greater numbered enemies, often dying to the last man. From the Spartan and Persian clash at Thermopylae and the Basques' ambush of Charlemagne's army at Ronceveaux Pass, through Santa Anna's siege of the Alamo defended by Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie to the skirmish at Little Big Horn between Crazy Horse's Sioux nation and Lieutenant Colonel George Custer's Seventh Calvary, the Soviet victory against the Nazis at Stalingrad, and more, Walsh reminds us all of the debt we owe to heroes willing to risk their lives against overwhelming odds'and how these sacrifices and battles are not only a part of military history but of human mythological culture

"Author Michael Walsh, former music critic for Time magazine, takes audiences on a wise and witty dash through 400 years of operatic history and culture."
