✏The History of Wine as a Medicine Book Summary : This unique book is the first to describe mankind’s 5,000 year history of using wine as a medicine. Wine is our oldest, most documented and best preventative medicine. It reduces the rate of death from all causes by up to 50% by minimising vascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes by up to 50% and dementia by up to 80%. This text rewrites the history of wine by showing that the first grape wine was actually made in China and not Georgia, as current theory suggests. It contains a unique detailed chronology of wine as a medicine from 9,500 years ago in China until today. It also details some interesting stories about wine, such as its use to help keep convicts alive during their long voyage to Australia, its use in Australian lunatic asylums, Australia’s many ‘Wine Doctors’ such as Penfold and Lindeman, and the American Presidents who championed wine. The book also contains a chapter on one of the main health components of wine, namely resveratrol; written by Professor Joseph Maroon, the famous American neurosurgeon for the American NFL who is an expert on concussion injuries and a great advocate for the use of resveratrol to delay the aging process. It shows that the best way to absorb resveratrol is as a liquid via the buccal mucosa or lining of the mouth and not as pills or capsules. That is why it is best to swirl wine around in your mouth for a minute or two before swallowing it, to absorb more resveratrol.

✏Laughter Is the Best Medicine Book Summary : Brevity is the soul and wit of this publication; however, the medical industry is the largest and most complex combination of human resources ever assembled, earning it a status well worth writing about. Certain epigrams are gentle and subtle, and others quite caustic, but all contain some form of social or scientific commentary. If the reader has a morbid sense of humor, this book will be especially enjoyed.

✏Wine Drinking Culture in France Book Summary : This book provides a new interpretation of the relationship between consumption, drinking culture, memory and cultural identity in an age of rapid political and economic change. Using France as a case-study it explores the construction of a national drinking culture -the myths, symbols and practices surrounding it- and then through a multisited ethnography of wine consumption demonstrates how that culture is in the process of being transformed. Wine drinking culture in France has traditionally been a source of pride for the French and in an age of concerns about the dangers of 'binge-drinking', a major cause of jealousy for the British. Wine drinking and the culture associated with it are, for many, an essential part of what it means to be French, but they are also part of a national construction. Described by some as a national product, or as a 'totem drink', wine and its attendant cultures supposedly characterise Frenchness in much the same way as being born in France, fighting for liberty or speaking French. Yet this traditional picture is now being challenged by economic, social and political forces that have transformed consumption patterns and led to the fragmentation of wine drinking culture. The aim of this book is to provide an original account of the various causes of the long-term decline in alcohol consumption and of the emergence of a new wine drinking culture since the 1970s and to analyse its relationship to national and regional identity.

✏Bacchic Medicine Book Summary : Wine has always been a part of popular medicine. Bacchic Medicine analyses the historical role of wine in the treatment of disease and preservation of health. The Hippocratic texts gave wine therapy a canonical statement over two millennia ago; but the nineteenth century was the golden age of alcohol and wine therapy. The Germans and the British gave us early canons of wine therapy and, heavily endowed with wine cultural capital, the French followed. But like all therapies, alcohol and wine therapies were not without danger and some of the 'iatrogenic' tales are still with us. In the twentieth century, many doctors rallied to the defence of wine both as a substitute for more dangerous alcoholic drinks and as an efficacious medicament, with an impressive case for the efficacy of wine in fighting bacteria, heart disease and cancer. New science based on animal models and ionic theory fortified their arguments. According to the controversial 'French Paradox', wine drinking makes it possible for a population to enjoy a high fat diet yet suffer little. Bacchic Medicine also discusses the contemporary debate over the role of alcohol and wine in preventive medicine.
