The Meaning of Horses: Biosocial Encounters examines some of the engagements or entanglements that link the lived experiences of human and non-human animals. The contributors discuss horse-human relationships in multiple contexts, times and places, highlighting variations in the meaning of horses as well as universals of ‘horsiness’. They consider how horses are unlike other animals, and cover topics such as commodification, identity, communication and performance. This collection emphasises the agency of the horse and a need to move beyond anthropocentric studies, with a theoretical approach that features naturecultures, co-being and biosocial encounters as interactive forms of becoming. Rooted in anthropology and multispecies ethnography, this book introduces new questions and areas for consideration in the field of animals and society.

From the Irish village of Castlewarren in the 1850s to Lanesboro, Minnesota, "The Irish Rebel" follows the life of Edward Ruth. A story of survival, love, war, and life fashioned around a historical framework, this fictionalized account portrays the hardships of Ireland and provides a glimpse of the American Civil War through the eyes of an immigrant. Based on writings from his great-great-grandfather's journey, author Peter L. Crawley has portrayed Ruth's struggle to extricate himself from the bogs of starvation and cultural ambivalence to make a name for himself as a dentist in his new country, while he tries to prove himself worthy for the hand of one Irish maiden. The journey takes him from Ireland during "The Times of Troubles," with England's insensitive colonial policies, to the American Civil War and Morgan's Raiders, led by the infamous John Hunt Morgan. "The Irish Rebel" tells the tale of the striking similarity between the American Civil War and England's disgraceful disavowal of Irish Home Rule. This novel provides a vivid account of that historical period as portrayed by one who has Gaelic blood in him as well as a sentimental dose of unflappable Irish wit.

Rosaleen ist eine Frau, die nichts tut und von den anderen alles erwartet. Sie ist Mitte siebzig, die vier Kinder sind schon lange aus dem Haus. Die Brüder Dan und Emmett sind vor der Enge der irischen Heimat in die Ferne geflohen; das Nesthäkchen Hanna wollte auf den Theaterbühnen der Welt reüssieren, spricht aber nun dem Alkohol zu, und Constance, die Älteste, hat sich selbst verloren. Doch abgenabelt hat sich keines der Kinder. Noch immer versucht jedes auf seine Weise, es dieser besten aller Mütter recht zu machen. Und scheitert. Da kommt die Einladung zu einem letzten Weihnachtsfest in Ardeevin. Rosaleen möchte das Haus, in dem die Kinder groß geworden sind, das voller Erinnerungen an glückliche Momente und Verletzungen steckt, verkaufen. Die Geschwister reisen mit diffuser Hoffnung auf Versöhnung an – und doch endet es, wie noch jedes Weihnachten geendet hat. Booker-Preisträgerin Anne Enright wagt sich auf den dunklen Grund unserer Gefühle, studiert menschliches Verhalten dort, wo es am störanfälligsten ist, wo Liebe und Hass nahe beieinander liegen und es kein oder zumindest kein einfaches Entrinnen gibt: in der Familie.
