In 1962 Joan Fry was a college sophomore recently married to a dashing anthropologist. Naively consenting to a year-long “working honeymoon” in British Honduras (now Belize), she soon found herself living in a remote Kekchi village deep in the rainforest. Because Fry had no cooking or housekeeping experience, the romance of living in a hut and learning to cook on a makeshift stove quickly faded. Guided by the village women and their children, this twenty-year-old American who had never made more than instant coffee eventually came to love the people and the food that at first had seemed so foreign. While her husband conducted his clinical study of the native population, Fry entered their world through friendships forged over an open fire. Coming of age in the jungle among the Kekchi and Mopan Maya, Fry learned to teach, to barter and negotiate, to hold her ground, to share her space—and she learned to cook. This is the funny, heartfelt, and provocative story of how Fry painstakingly baked and boiled her way up the food chain, from instant oatmeal and flour tortillas to bush-green soup, agouti (a big rodent), gibnut (a bigger rodent), and, finally, something even the locals wouldn’t tackle: a “mountain cow,” or tapir. Fry’s effort to win over her neighbors and hair-pulling students offers a rare and insightful picture of the Kekchi Maya of Belize, even as this unique culture was disappearing before her eyes.

The history of the Jewish people has been a history of migration. Although Jews invariably brought with them their traditional ideas about food during these migrations, just as invariably they engaged with the foods they encountered in their new environments. Their culinary habits changed as a result of both these migrations and the new political and social realities they encountered. The stories in this volume examine the sometimes bewildering kaleidoscope of food experiences generated by new social contacts, trade, political revolutions, wars, and migrations, both voluntary and compelled. This panoramic history of Jewish food highlights its breadth and depth on a global scale from Renaissance Italy to the post–World War II era in Israel, Argentina, and the United States and critically examines the impact of food on Jewish lives and on the complex set of laws, practices, and procedures that constitutes the Jewish dietary system and regulates what can be eaten, when, how, and with whom. Global Jewish Foodways offers a fresh perspective on how historical changes through migration, settlement, and accommodation transformed Jewish food and customs.

Many Jewish foods are beloved in American culture. Everyone eats bagels, and the delicatessen is a ubiquitous institution from Manhattan to Los Angeles. Jewish American Food Culture offers readers an in-depth look at both well-known and unfamiliar Jewish dishes and the practices and culture of a diverse group of Americans. This is the source to consult about what “parve” on packaging means, the symbolism of particular foods essential to holiday celebrations, what keeping kosher entails, how meals and food rituals are approached differently depending on ways of practicing Judaism and the land of one’s ancestors, and much more. Jonathan Deutsch and Rachel D. Saks first provide a historical overview of the culture and symbolism of Jewish cuisine before explaining the main foods and ingredients of Jewish American food. Chapters on cooking practices, holiday celebrations, eating out, and diet and health complete the overview. Twenty-three recipes, a chronology, a glossary, a resource guide, and a selected bibliography make this an essential one-stop resource for every library.

Even if you don't happen to be a celebrity, this book will teach you methods for striking publishing gold—conceptualizing, selling, and marketing a memoir—while dealing with the complicated emotions that arise during the creation of your work. If you've ever been told that "You should really write a book" and you've decided to give it a try, this book is for you. It hones in on the three key measures necessary for aspiring authors to conceptualize, sell, and market their memoirs. Written especially for those who don't happen to be celebrities You Should Really Write a Book reveals why and how so many relatively unknown memoirists are making a name for themselves. With references to more than four hundred books and six memoir categories, this is essential reading for anyone wanting to write a commercially viable memoir in today's vastly changing publishing industry. The days are long gone when editors and agents were willing to take on a manuscript simply because it was based on a "good" idea or even because it was well written. With eyes focused on the bottom line, they now look for skilled and creative authors with an established audience, too. Brooks and Richardson use the latest social networking, marketing, and promotional trends and explain how to conceptualize and strategize campaigns that cause buzz, dramatically fueling word-of-mouth and attracting attention in the publishing world and beyond. Full of current examples and in-depth analysis, this guide explains what sells and why, teaches writers to think like publishers, and offers guidance on dealing with complicated emotions—essential tools for maximizing memoir success.

Als James Cook 1769 zur ersten seiner drei großen Reisen aufbrach, war die Erde gerade einmal zu zwei Dritteln kartiert. Zehn Jahre später hatte Cook nicht nur auf dem Wasserweg die Welt entschleiert, sondern auch umfangreiche kulturelle und wissenschaftliche Studien vorgenommen, die das neuzeitliche Bild der Erde entscheidend prägten. Zwar ist viel über Cooks Leistungen bekannt, doch verstellten die Fakten bisher den ungeschönten Blick auf diese außergewöhnliche Figur. Tony Horwitz lenkt die Aufmerksamkeit des Betrachters nicht nur auf die dunklen Seiten des großen Forschers, sondern auch auf die zum Teil entsetzlichen Konsequenzen, die dessen Entdeckungen für einfache Kulturen nach sich zogen.

Die Geschichte der vorspanischen Hochkulturen Amerikas, insbesondere die der Azteken, Maya und Inka und ihrer Vorläufer, faszinierte lange Zeit schon, weil sie geheimnisvoller, unbekannter erschien als die der Alten Welt. Forschungsfortschritte der letzten Jahrzehnte, vor allem die Entzifferung der Maya-Hieroglyphenschrift, brachten ungeahnte neue Erkenntnisse. Dem trägt die völlig neu bearbeitete und um beinahe ein Drittel erweiterte Auflage der "Geschichte Altamerikas" Rechnung, in der nun auch in das Schicksal der indianischen Bevölkerung unter der spanischen Kolonialherrschaft eingeführt wird. Zur ersten Auflage: "Mit großer Sachkenntnis und in gut lesbarer Sprache schildert Prem in kompakter Form die gesicherten Kenntnisse über die Geschichte der beiden Kulturräume von der Vorgeschichte bis zur spanischen Eroberung."
