Renowned for the beauty and simplicity of his teachings, Ajahn Chah was Thailand's best-known meditation teacher. His charisma and wisdom influenced many American and European seekers, and helped shape the American Vipassana community. This collection brings together for the first time Ajahn Chah's most powerful teachings, including those on meditation, liberation from suffering, calming the mind, enlightenment and the 'living dhamma'. Most of these talks have previously only been available in limited, private editions and the publication of Food for the Heart therefore represents a momentous occasion: the hugely increased accessibility of his words and wisdom. Western teachers such as Ram Dass and Jack Kornfield have extolled Chah's teachings for years and now readers can experience them directly in this book.

In recent decades, many Russian-speaking Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union have settled in Germany and Israel. In Food for Thought, Julia Bernstein conducts a widely interdisciplinary investigation into the ways in which such immigrants manage their multiple, overlapping identities—as Jews, Russians, and citizens of their newly adopted nations. Focusing in particular on the packaging, sale, and consumption of food, which offers surprising insights into the self-definitions of these immigrants, the book delivers one of our most detailed looks yet at complicated and important aspects of immigration and national identities.

Food consumption is vital to human survival. Nevertheless, the exact determi nants of food perception, liking and food choice are still not fully understood. Food, People and Society tries to fill some of the gaps in our knowledge by stud ying these processes from multiple perspectives, each with their own emphasis. Some approaches focus mainly on the characteristics of food products eaten, some focus on the person who eats a particular food, whereas other approaches emphasize the psychological, economic or social context in which food con sumption takes place. By bringing together these different approaches in one book, we open the opportunity to integrate different perspectives and to facili tate comprehension of the complex processes that drive food choice behaviour. Food, People and Society is written for a wide audience, including students and academics interested in food perception and consumption, policy makers, health educators and nutritionists, food manufacturers and food marketers.

Food aid is a controversial form of development assistance and this book, first published in 1979, seeks to counter allegations from critics by taking account of both direct and indirect affects. Based on field research in Tunisia, Botswana, Upper Volta and Lesotho, it considers aid from the UK, EEC, USAID, the World Food Programme, Canada and France, and draws a number of policy-orientated conclusions about the impact of food aid on nutrition, consumer prices and agricultural production. In the light of the evidence from field studies it is shown that many of the claims advanced by food aid supporters and by critics cannot be sustained, and that the real impact of food aid is rather different from that assumed by the conventional wisdom on the subject.

To describe life's wonderful imperfection, I wrote this book as if I'm just writing a simple and ordinary letter using a pen and paper. I imagine writing without any spell check or grammar check on. I wrote the book A World With You And Me because my dream is to be a part of a ministry. My goal is to write letters most especially for those people who didn't know how to express their thoughts in a hope that I will be able to help them say what they need to say like how some people encourage me to express myself. I wrote the letters using my simple writing style. Just imagine that my book is a huge mailbox with a lot of letters in it. I used the concept of writing letters because I believe that simple words of encouragement is a way to touch everyone's hearts. Writing this book is like a long journey. I shared everything that I've learned from this life since I was young until I became an adult. I wrote everything that I learned from the news, on tv, on the radio, in school, while traveling and everything that I've learn from my family, friends, from my influences, from different artist and even from strangers. In my letters to God, I talked to him about what happened to the world, when the problems of the world started, and the reasons why the world is always giving him the blame whenever bad things happen in their lives. In my letters to the world, I wrote letters for all of you and believe it or not?? Even for myself. I propose a happy change. It is composed of my little suggestion or solution to the problems of the world and my ideas to create change. I wrote a letter to parents, fishermen, illegal loggers, abled and disabled people, drivers, doctors, lawyers, young adults, broken and happy families, lovers, friends, and all people who are seeking an inspiration and reason for living. In the conclusion of the book, I wrote an advance thank-you letter to God and imagined that the world heard me out and granted my proposed happy change. I also wrote this book for people who are a part of a ministry, teachers, writers, artist and all those people who might grant my request to reach out to many people and start a project like what is written in the book. I wrote simple suggestions like for writers, writing a beautiful story on how to solve a math problem for those students who are having a hard time in school. For musicians, asking them to write more songs to make relationships work instead of breaking up. I also wrote a letter asking people to make a car for visually impaired people like me and a lot more! The book is a piece of enlightenment so the reader is not only drawn into the purpose why it was written but to the idea of considering making a happy change to their own lives.

There's a battle going on in school lunchrooms around the country...and it's a battle our children can't afford for us to lose. The average kid will eat 4,000 school lunches between kindergarten and twelfth grade. But what exactly are kids eating in school lunchrooms around the country? Many parents don't quite know what their children are eating-or where it came from. As award-winning filmmaker and nutritionist Amy Kalafa discovered in researching her documentary film Two Angry Moms: Fighting for the Health of America's Children, these days it's pretty rare to find a piece of fresh fruit in your average school lunchroom amid all the chips, french fries, Pop-Tarts, chicken nuggets, and soda that's being served. But what, if anything, can parents do about it? Written in response to the onslaught of requests she received from parents who saw her film and asked, "If I want to attempt to change the food culture in my kid's school, how on earth should I get started?!" this empowering book arms parents with the specific information and tools they need to get unhealthy-even dangerous-food out of their children's school cafeteria and to hold their schools and local and national governments accountable for ensuring that their growing children are served healthy meals at school. In Lunch Wars, Kalafa explains all the complicated issues surrounding school food; how to work with your school's "Wellness Policy"; the basics of self- operated vs. outsourced cafeterias; how to get funding for a school garden, and much more. Lunch Wars also features the inspiring stories of parents around the country who have fought for better school food and have won, as well as details Amy's quest to spark a revolution in her own school district. For the future health and well-being of our children, the time has come for a school food revolution.

With the biting wit of Supersize Me and the passion of a lifelong activist, Joel Berg has his eye on the growing number of people who are forced to wait on lines at food pantries across the nation—the modern breadline. All You Can Eat reveals that hunger is a problem as American as apple pie, and shows what it is like when your income is not enough to cover rising housing and living costs and put food on the table. Berg takes to task politicians who remain inactive; the media, which ignores hunger except during holidays and hurricanes; and the food industry, which makes fattening, artery-clogging fast food more accessible to the nation's poor than healthy fare. He challenges the new president to confront the most unthinkable result of US poverty—hunger—and offers a simple and affordable plan to end it for good. A spirited call to action, All You Can Eat shows how practical solutions for hungry Americans will ultimately benefit America's economy and all of its citizens.

Republic of Outsiders is about the growing number of Americans who disrupt the status quo: outsiders who seek to redefine a wide variety of fields, from film and mental health to diplomacy and music, from how we see gender to what we eat. They include professional and amateur filmmakers crowd-sourcing their work, transgender and autistic activists, and Occupy Wall Street’s “alternative bankers.” These people create and package new identities in a practice cultural critic Alissa Quart dubs “identity innovation”: they push the boundaries of who they can be and what they can do, even turning the forces of co-optation to their benefit. In a brilliant and far-reaching account, Quart introduces us to individuals who have created new structures to keep themselves sane, fulfilled, and, on occasion, paid. This deeply reported book shows how and why these groups now gather, organize, and create new communities and economies. Without a middleman, freed of established media, and highly mobile, unusual ideas and cultures are able to spread more quickly and find audiences and allies.Republic of Outsiders is a critical examination of those for whom being rebellious, marginal, or amateur is a source of strength rather than weakness.
