✏Animal Vegetable Miracle Book Summary : "We wanted to live in a place that could feed us: where rain falls, crops grow, and drinking water bubbles up right out of the ground." Barbara Kingsolver opens her home to us, as she and her family attempt a year of eating only local food, much of it from their own garden. Inspired by the flavours and culinary arts of a local food culture, they explore many a farmers market and diversified organic farms at home and across the country. With characteristic warmth, Kingsolver shows us how to put food back at the centre of the political and family agenda. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is part memoir, part journalistic investigation, and is full of original recipes that celebrate healthy eating, sustainability and the pleasures of good food.

ABOUT THE BOOK We wanted to live in a place that could feed us: where rain falls, crops grow, and drinking water bubbles up right out of the ground. Its hard to categorize Animal, Vegetable, Mineral by Barbara Kingsolver, Camille Kingsolver, and Stephen Hopp. The book is a result of a year-long project where Kingsolver, her husband Stephen, and her two daughters Camille and Lilly eat food either grown themselves or locally produced. In addition to firsthand accounts recounting the trials and tribulations of raising their own food including turkeys! this book serves as a how-to manual for those interested in embarking on a similar journey, and provides a strong social commentary about the current state of the food system in the United States. MEET THE AUTHOR Kate Kastelein has over 10 years of experience writing, researching and editing articles, eNewsletters, web content, press releases, and resource books. She's a huge nerd, and is interested in everything from science and the latest technology to crafts, food and celebrity gossip. Kate's a native Mainer, and when she's not shoveling snow or writing, she's huddled near the fire with her daughter, husband, and dogs. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Because of the amount of travelling food must do, many conventional growers choose produce for durability rather than taste. Most fruit is picked before it has ripened, which it does on the road instead of on the vine. Since produce grown by local farmers or by yourself travels very short distances, it can be harvested when ripe. This allows for maximum taste and nutrition. Meat is another story altogether. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle points out the horrors of CAFOs where animals are packed tightly together in horrible conditions for their entire lives. At best, they are fed grains saturated with hormones and antibiotics, and at worst, things like sawdust. During their year of sustainable eating, Kingsolvers family eats meat raised by responsible local farmers who treat their animals well, allow them plenty of space to roam, eat grass, and live much happier lives than their factory farmed counter parts...

✏Animal Vegetable Miracle 10th Anniversary Edition Book Summary : A beautiful deluxe trade paperback edition celebrating the 10th anniversary of Barbara Kingsolver's New York Times bestseller, which describes her family's adventure as they move to a farm in southern Appalachia and realign their lives with the local food chain. Since its publication in 2007, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle has captivated readers with its blend of memoir and journalistic investigation. Newly updated with original pieces from the entire Kingsolver clan, this commemorative volume explores how the family's original project has been carried forward through the years. When Barbara Kingsolver and her family moved from suburban Arizona to rural Appalachia, they took on a new challenge: to spend a year on a locally-produced diet, paying close attention to the provenance of all they consume. Concerned about the environmental, social, and physical costs of American food culture, they hoped to recover what Barbara considers our nation's lost appreciation for farms and the natural processes of food production. Since 2007, their scheme has evolved enormously. In this new edition, featuring an afterword composed by the entire Kingsolver family, Barbara's husband, Steven, discusses how the project grew into a farm-to-table restaurant and community development project training young farmers in their area to move into sustainable food production. Camille writes about her decision to move back to a rural area after college, and how she and her husband incorporate their food values in their lives as they begin their new family. Lily, Barbara's youngest daughter, writes about how growing up on a farm, in touch with natural processes and food chains, has shaped her life as a future environmental scientist. And Barbara writes about their sheep, and how they grew into her second vocation as a fiber artist, and reports on the enormous response they've received from other home-growers and local-food devotees. With Americans' ever-growing concern over an agricultural establishment that negatively affects our health and environment, the Kingsolver family's experiences and observations remain just as relevant today as they were ten years ago. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is a modern classic that will endure for years to come. “Cogent and illuminating...Without sentimentality, this book captures the pulse of the farm and the deep gratification it provides, as well as the intrinsic humor of the situation.”—Janet Maslin, New York Times

✏Eating Anxiety Book Summary : Debates about obesity are really about the meaning of responsibility. The trend toward local foods reflects the changing nature of space due to new communication technologies. Vegetarian theory capitalizes on biotechnology’s challenge to the meaning of species. And food politics, as this book makes powerfully clear, is actually about the political anxieties surrounding globalization. In Eating Anxiety, Chad Lavin argues that our culture’s obsession with diet, obesity, meat, and local foods enacts ideological and biopolitical responses to perceived threats to both individual and national sovereignty. Using the occasion of eating to examine assumptions about identity, objectivity, and sovereignty that underwrite so much political order, Lavin explains how food functions to help structure popular and philosophical understandings of the world and the place of humans within it. He introduces the concept of digestive subjectivity and shows how this offers valuable resources for rethinking cherished political ideals surrounding knowledge, democracy, and power. Exploring discourses of food politics, Eating Anxiety links the concerns of food—especially issues of sustainability, public health, and inequality—to the evolution of the world order and the possibilities for democratic rule. It forces us to question the significance of consumerist politics and—simultaneously—the relationship between politics and ethics, public and private.

✏Bruce Springsteen and Philosophy Book Summary : Known as the working man's poet, the Boardwalk prophet, or simply, the Boss. If "love is a banquet at which we feed," Bruce Springsteen has provided much food for thought. In this collection of metaphysical probes, a gang of E-street philosophers will undress Bruce's deeper mysteries like irresistible Jersey girls. Can Springsteen settle the nature-nurture debate through his song "Born to Run"? What do the famous philosopher Ricuoer and Springsteen have in common in their depiction of time?
