📒Closing The Food Gap ✍ Mark Winne
📝Closing the Food Gap Book Synopsis : From the War on Poverty to new farmers' markets, a food expert tackles America's dangerous dietary split With a new Foreword Closing the Food Gap exposes America's dangerous dietary split: from patrons of food pantries, bodegas, and convenience stores to the more comfortable classes who increasingly seek out organic and local products. Calling largely on his own experience in food activism, and mixing in surprisingly witty observations, Mark Winne ultimately envisions realistic partnerships in which family farms and impoverished communities come together to get healthy, locally produced food onto everyone's table.
📒The Land Of Plenty ✍ Mark Davis
📝The Land Of Plenty Book Synopsis : 'There is an Australian dream that is collective. It goes to the roots of what it means to be Australian, since it's imprinted in Australia's history, the collective acts of its peoples, their attitudes, their gestures, what and how they eat, how they spend their leisure time, and the way such things reflect upon and derive from who they are.' In The Land of Plenty, Mark Davis argues that this dream has been forsaken. Over the past few decades Australians have felt the ground shift beneath their feet. Many people are asking why Australia is no longer the egalitarian place it once was. While the airwaves sing and newspaper front pages burst with news of how prosperous Australians are, many people wonder why they are working harder and longer, for so little, while important social agendas have fallen by the wayside. The Land of Plenty is at once a devastating record of the changes that have taken place in Australian society since the 1980s, and a goldmine of ideas for change. Insightful, provocative and thoroughly original, The Land of Plenty is a manifesto for our times.

📒In A Land Of Plenty ✍ Tim Pears
📝In A Land Of Plenty Book Synopsis : In a small town in the middle of England, the aftermath of the Second World War brings change. For ambitious industrialist Charles Freeman, it offers new opportunities and marriage to Mary. He buys the big house on the hill and nails his aspirations to the future. In quick succession, three sons and a daughter bring life to the big house and, with it, the seeds of family joy and tragedy. As the children grow and struggle with the hazards of adulthood, Charles' business expands in direct proportion to his girth and becomes a symbol of the town's fortunes as Britain claws its way back from the grey austerity of wartime Britain. As times change, so do the family's fortunes. Their stories create a generous epic, an extraordinarily rich and plangent hymn to the transformation of middle England over the past fifty years. At its heart is a diverse and persuasive cast of loveable and odious characters attempting to contend with the restrictions of their generation. This is the story of our lives.
📒The Land Of Plenty ✍ Robert Cantwell
📝The Land of Plenty Book Synopsis : A labor strike at a lumber mill divides a town based on the author's hometown of Aberdeen, Washington. "The Land of Plenty" portrays the blue-collar workers' struggle for existence and depicts, with sensitivity and compassion, workers and owners alike in their poverty, depravity, and their ultimate goodness. "The Land of Plenty" created a political firestorm when it was published to great success in 1935. Long out -of-print it remains one of the most graphically exciting novels of the Thirties, a lost American classic.
📝Wim Wenders Land of Plenty A love hate relationship with the USA Book Synopsis : Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject History Europe - Other Countries - Newer History, European Unification, grade: 2,0, University of California, Berkeley (Department of History), course: U.S. Cultural and Intellectual History: Global Contexts, language: English, abstract: Wim Wenders' ambiguity, the love‐hate relationship with the United States was the main force behind the production of “Land of Plenty” (2004). It was shot within three weeks with a small digital amateur camera, and only because the production of his next film “Don’t come knocking” (2005) got delayed. The entire production of the movie took not more than six weeks. Without a doubt, it is Wenders’ most political film so far. As a Christian, one (or, as he stated once, even his initial) idea for the film was “to set a radically contrary idea of being Christian against the fundamentalist Christendom” of the Bush administration. His ambition was to “fight against the treason [on democracy and freedom and] on all what is left of my childhood myth.” As stated in the press release for “Land of Plenty”, it is a “film about the country he has been concerned with for many years and which he loves”, a “very personal” and “sanguine film about those who still stand for this country’s possibilities [...], a political essay.” Typical for his artistic approach, Wenders did not want to make an “angry” film, but one that could contribute to “healing”; a profound difference to films by Michael Moore, a name often dropped in Germany in the context of “Land of Plenty”. Wenders, as he stated himself, wanted to explore the same territory as Moore, but, of course, in his very own way. In direct comparison to Moore , the Süddeutsche Zeitung, for example, grants Wenders “more complex, sadly beautiful, inconceivable images” and an overall more convincing approach.
📒Land Of Plenty ✍ Fuchsia Dunlop

📒American Exorcism ✍ Michael Cuneo
📝American Exorcism Book Synopsis : Conducted by officially appointed exorcists or by maverick priests sidestepping Christian sanctions, by evangelical ministers and Episcopal charismatics, the ancient rite of exorcism is flourishing in the new millennium. In New York alone, four priests have, since 1995, officially investigated over 40 cases of suspected demonic possession, the Archdiocese of Chicago has appointed its first full-time exorcist in over 160 years while exorcists have appeared on television, courtesy of the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Larry King. Written with objectivity, insight and a healthy amount of irony, AMERICAN EXORCISM is an inside look at this - to some extraordinary, to others preposterous and to many, terrifying - phenomenon. Having attended over 50 exorcisms in person, and interviewed many of the participants - both the exorcists and those who believed themselves to be possessed - Michael Cuneo explores this netherworld of American, and ergo, British, life, and reflects on the meaning of exorcism in the 21st century, and on the relationship between religious ritual and popular culture. As well recounting in gripping detail the ceremonies he witnessed, he touches on such provocative topics as the 'satanic panics' of the 1980s, repressed memory and ritual abuse. The result is a remarkably revealing, entertaining and fascinating work of cultural commentary.
