Book Description :

Pollan writes about the ecology of the food humans eat and why--what it is, in fact, that we are eating. Discussing industrial farming, organic food, and what it is like to hunt and gather food, this is a surprisingly honest and self-aware account of the evolution of the modern diet.

Book Description :

The three groundbreaking books from our most trusted guide to food, now brought together for the first time In a few short years, Michael Pollan has completely transformed America’s understanding of eating. Now, Pollan on Food collects the New York Times–bestselling author’s three masterworks into one memorable package. First, the groundbreaking book that started it all, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, in which Pollan turns his own omnivorous mind to the seemingly straightforward question of what we should have for dinner. Next, with In Defense of Food, Pollan proposes a new (and very old) idea that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Finally, in Cooked, Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen; showing the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Pollan on Food is the perfect answer for those looking to unravel the secret to good and healthy eating.

The New York Times bestseller that’s changing America’s diet is now perfect for younger readers “What’s for dinner?” seemed like a simple question—until journalist and supermarket detective Michael Pollan delved behind the scenes. From fast food and big organic to small farms and old-fashioned hunting and gathering, this young readers’ adaptation of Pollan’s famous food-chain exploration encourages kids to consider the personal and global health implications of their food choices. In a smart, compelling format with updated facts, plenty of photos, graphs, and visuals, as well as a new afterword and backmatter, The Omnivore’s Dilemma serves up a bold message to the generation that needs it most: It’s time to take charge of our national eating habits—and it starts with you.

Book Description :

."What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's diet choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't, which mushrooms should be avoided, for example, and which berries we can enjoy. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.The cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast-food outlet has thrown us back on a bewildering landscape where we once again have to worry about which of those tasty-looking morsels might kill us. At the same time we're realizing that our food choices also have profound implications for the health of our environment. The Omnivore's Diet esther Roberta ph.d brilliant and eye-opening exploration of these little-known but vitally important dimensions of eating in America.We are indeed what we eat, and what we eat remakes the world. A society of voracious and increasingly confused omnivores, we are just beginning to recognize the profound consequences of the simplest everyday food choices, both for ourselves and for the natural world. The Omnivore's Diet is a long-overdue book and one that will become known for bringing a completely fresh perspective to a question as ordinary and yet momentous as "What shall we have for dinner?"

Book Description :

Archaeology and anthropology have come a long way in the pasthalf-century, and the 1950s thinking concerning the relationshipbetween the two is increasingly considered irrelevant. However, theplacement of archaeology within the discipline of anthropology hasalways been uneasy—and was just as much a half-century andmore ago as it is now. Is archaeology only now on the brink of"divorce" after decades of pleas for mutual respect and cooperationhave finally proven inadequate (Watson 1995)? Is separation theonly alternative left to sustain and further archaeology and tofinally shake off a second-class status to socioculturalanthropology that archaeologists have long contested (Willey andSabloff 1993:152)? In what sense can we profess that archaeology isstill anthropology? This volume evaluates the reasons proffered for separationagainst those in favor of maintaining the identity and practice ofarchaeologists as anthropologists. Arguments for the separation ofarchaeology from the discipline of which it has been a part forover a century take several different forms, weighing variousintellectual factors: historical, methodological, and theoretical.Recent changes in the practice of archaeology and in theorganization of professional societies must also be considered.

Book Description :

Flip through a magazine, turn on the TV, or browse around online, and it quickly becomes clear: vegetarian eating is on the rise. But just who are vegetarians? How do they make the transition? And what really drives them to take the meat off their plates? Vegetarians differ from omnivores not just in their eating habits but also in their psychology, personalities, friendship choices, even their sex lives. Extensive studies from around the world show that they vote differently, take different jobs, and have brains that fire differently. This research also provides insight into why people who consider themselves vegetarian may not really be vegetarian at all, and why so many fall off the vegetarian wagon.Veganomics is a fascinating journey through the science on vegetarians and vegetarian eating, shedding new light on how and why people eat the way they do, and what impact their dietary choices can have on the world around us. Be forewarned: after reading this book, you may never look at vegetarians the same way again!
