Bringing It to the Table by Wendell Berry Summary

Only a farmer could delve so deeply into the origins of food, and only a writer of Wendell Berry’s caliber could convey it with such conviction and eloquence. A progenitor of the slow food movement, Wendell Berry reminds us all to take the time to understand the basics of what we ingest. “Eating is an agriculture act,” he writes. Indeed, we are all players in the food economy. For the last five decades, Berry has embodied mindful eating through his land practices and his writing. In recognition of that influence, Michael Pollan here offers an introduction to this wonderful collection that is essential reading for anyone who cares about what they eat. Drawn from over thirty years of work, this collection joins bestsellers The Omnivore's Dilemma, by Pollan, and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver, as essential reading for anyone who cares about what they eat. The essays address such concerns as: How does organic measure up against locally grown? What are the differences between small and large farms, and how does that affect what you put on your dinner table? What can you do to support sustainable agriculture?

Take My Hand: A Theological Memoir by Andrew Taylor-Troutman Summary

Take My Hand is an invitation to experience a year of preaching through the eyes of a first-year pastor. Andrew Taylor-Troutman reflects on his experience of ministry as a dynamic exchange between his theological education and the people in the pews. Each chapter consists of Taylor-Troutman's reflections about a particular aspect of living as a faith community and concludes with a sermon exploring similar themes and ideas. As this book journeys through the Christian liturgical year, Taylor-Troutman considers a wide range of contemporary church issues, including the role of children in worship and the communal practice of Sabbath. He discusses topics as diverse as the Rapture, the death penalty, and church league softball. Along the way, readers will laugh at Sunday morning bloopers, study biblical texts from new perspectives, wrestle with theological questions, and discover parallels between their own experience of faith and the life of this small rural congregation. More than just a retrospective summary of events, Take My Hand poignantly illustrates how a pastor's work on Sunday morning grows out of his or her engagement with the hopes and fears of daily life, and the inspiring faith of men, women, and children in a church. The Group Study Edition encourages people of different ages and experiences to discuss and enjoy the book, while applying insights to their own communities of faith.

Homo Domesticus by James C. SCOTT Summary

Aucun ouvrage n'avait jusqu'à présent réussi à restituer toute la profondeur et l'extension universelle des dynamiques indissociablement écologiques et anthropologiques qui se sont déployées au cours des dix millénaires ayant précédé notre ère, de l'émergence de l'agriculture à la formation des premiers centres urbains, puis des premiers États. C'est ce tour de force que réalise avec un brio extraordinaire Homo domesticus. Servi par une érudition étourdissante, une plume agile et un sens aigu de la formule, ce livre démonte implacablement le grand récit de la naissance de l'État antique comme étape cruciale de la " civilisation " humaine. Ce faisant, il nous offre une véritable écologie politique des formes primitives d'aménagement du territoire, de l'" auto-domestication " paradoxale de l'animal humain, des dynamiques démographiques et épidémiologiques de la sédentarisation et des logiques de la servitude et de la guerre dans le monde antique. Cette fresque omnivore et iconoclaste révolutionne nos connaissances sur l'évolution de l'humanité et sur ce que Rousseau appelait " l'origine et les fondements de l'inégalité parmi les hommes ".

La vie secrète des vaches by Rosamund Young Summary

À la Kite’s Nest Farm, les vaches vivent en liberté. Chippy refuse de dormir avec les pieds boueux et fait toujours sa toilette avant de se coucher. Fat Hat préfère la présence des hommes à celle des femmes. Le vice caché de Jake est de renifler les émanations du tuyau d’échappement du Land Rover. Colérique et farouchement indépendante, Gemima salue tous les humains qu’elle rencontre d’un hochement de tête. Dans son délicieux et très inattendu ouvrage, Rosamund Young nous donne des chroniques affectueuses, drôles et touchantes du monde des vaches avec lesquelles elle vit depuis plus de cinquante ans. Loin de l’agriculture intensive, respectueuse de l’environnement, elle nous offre ici le plus convaincant et le plus amusant des plaidoyers contre la souffrance animale. « Rosamund Young a écrit un livre d’observation, d’affection, d’amitié. Rosamund Young a écrit un livre de tendresse, de compassion, de complicité. Rosamund Young a écrit, oui, c’est bien ça, un livre d’amour pour les vaches. » FRANÇOIS MOREL Traduit de l’anglais par Sabine Porte

The Impact of Industrial Farming on the Environment by Patrick Kimuyu Summary

Essay from the year 2018 in the subject Medicine - Public Health, grade: 1, Egerton University, language: English, abstract: Agricultural production has over the years transformed from subsistence farming to more intensive commercial farming. It is apparent that industrial agriculture has been epitomized as an important way of promoting farming efficiency, as well as increasing agricultural production. This has led to increased food sustainability in developed countries. It has also played a significant role in addressing food shortages in developing countries. Although industrial farming has helped to feed more people around the world, it has brought harm to both people and the planet as a whole. Thankfully, biotechnology has begun to make industrial farming more environmentally friendly, and as a nation we need to more fully embrace the revolution it is bringing to agriculture. It is apparent that industrial farming has immense consequences on the environment ranging from environmental pollution to the phenomenon of climate change. Therefore, this paper will provide an aesthetic analysis of the harmful impact of industrial farming on the environment.

Food and Urbanism by Susan Parham Summary

Cities are home to over fifty percent of the world's population, a figure which is expected to increase enormously by 2050. Despite the growing demand on urban resources and infrastructure, food is still often overlooked as a key factor in planning and designing cities. Without incorporating food into the design process – how it is grown, transported, and bought, cooked, eaten and disposed of – it is impossible to create truly resilient and convivial urbanism. Moving from the table and home garden to the town, city, and suburbs, Food and Urbanism explores the connections between food and place in past and present design practices. The book also looks to future methods for extending the 'gastronomic' possibilities of urban space. Supported by examples from places across the world, including the UK, Norway, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Romania, Australia and the USA, the book offers insights into how the interplay of physical design and socio-spatial practices centred around food can help to maintain socially rich, productive and sustainable urban space. Susan Parham brings together the latest research from a number of disciplines – urban planning, food studies, sociology, geography, and design – with her own fieldwork on a range of foodscapes to highlight the fundamental role food has to play in shaping the urban future.

Carbon Footprints and Food Systems by Paul Brenton,Gareth Edwards-Jones,Michael Friis Jensen Summary

This report addresses carbon labeling schemes, a high-profile issue and one that has important economic implications for developing countries. Carbon accounting and labeling instruments are designed to present information on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from supply chains. These instruments have become an important awareness-raising channel for governments, producers, retailers and consumers to bring about the reduction of GHGs. At the same time, they have emerged as a crucial element of supply chain management, trade logistics and, potentially, trade regulations between countries. But the underlying science of GHG emissions is only partially developed. Many of these schemes are based on rudimentary knowledge of GHG emissions and have mainly been designed by industrialized countries. There is a concern that these systems do not accurately reflect production processes in developing countries, and that they may even shift consumer preferences away from developing country exports. The report includes an analysis of current and emerging carbon labeling schemes and an assessment of available data, emissions factors and knowledge gaps of carbon footprinting methodologies. The report also analyzes carbon accounting methodologies for sugar and pineapple products from Zambia and Mauritius according to PAS 2050 guidelines, to illustrate whether these schemes accurately represent the production systems in developing countries. The report concludes with a series of recommendations on how carbon footprint labeling can be made more development-friendly

L'Homme du verger by Amanda Coplin Summary

À l’aube du xxe siècle, dans une région reculée le long de la côte pacifique des États-Unis, Talmadge prend soin de ses arbres fruitiers. Depuis près d’un demi-siècle, cet homme mène une existence apaisée, rythmée par les saisons des fruits. Jusqu’au jour où deux jeunes filles farouches et abandonnées font irruption dans son domaine... Leur arrivée bouleversera définitivement la vie de ces personnages, les rappelant à leurs douloureux passés. Retraçant l’histoire des êtres liés à ce verger, Amanda Coplin bâtit un récit d’une étonnante maturité littéraire, où l’épique se mêle à l’intime. « Nombreux sont les romanciers contemporains à poser la question de ce qui constitue une famille, mais peu d’entre eux y ont répondu avec une voix aussi résolue et profondément poétique. » Jan Stuart, New York Times. « Amanda Coplin a dépeint le paysage du nord-ouest américain qui lui est familier avec une telle fidélité que les lecteurs en reconnaîtront tous les horizons, les odeurs et les sons. Et, dans cet univers, elle place des personnages captivants, aux histoires non moins captivantes. Un premier roman époustouflant. » Ron Rash.

Japanese Capitalism Since 1945: Critical Perspectives by Tessa Morris-Suzuki,Seiyama Takuro Summary

This book introduces students of the Japanese economy to a broad range of critical contemporary Marxian analyses by Japanese economists. Each of the five essays - on economic policy, agriculture, big business, labour relations, and foreign trade and investment - is written by a specialist in the field. The introduction places the essays in the wider context of contrasting theories of Japanese economic development. While such writings constitute an important part of the economic literature in Japan, virtually none of the great body of Marxian writing on Japanese capitalism has heretofore been available in English.

The Third Plate by Dan Barber Summary

'A must-read for anyone interested in food and the future' Yotam Ottolenghi Based on ten years of surveying farming communities around the world, top New York chef Dan Barber's The Third Plate offers a radical new way of thinking about food that will heal the land and taste incredible. The 'first plate' was a classic meal centred on a large cut of meat with few vegetables. On the 'second plate', championed by the farm-to-table movement, meat is free-range and vegetables are locally sourced. It's better-tasting, and better for the planet, but the second plate's architecture is identical to that of the first. It, too, disrupts ecological balances, causing soil depletion and nutrient loss - it just isn't a sustainable way to farm or eat. The 'third plate' offers a solution: an integrated system of vegetable, cereal and livestock production that is fully supported - in fact, dictated - by what we choose to cook for dinner. The Third Plate is where good farming and good food intersect.
