📒Salt ✍ Mark Kurlansky
📝Salt Book Synopsis : Homer called it a divine substance. Plato described it as especially dear to the gods. As Mark Kurlansky so brilliantly relates here, salt has shaped civilisation from the beginning, and its story is a glittering, often surprising part of the history of mankind. Wars have been fought over salt and, while salt taxes secured empires across Europe and Asia, they have also inspired revolution - Gandhi's salt march in 1930 began the overthrow of British rule in India. From the rural Sichuan province where the last home-made soya sauce is produced to the Cheshire brine springs that supplied salt around the globe, Mark Kurlansky has produced a kaleidoscope of world history, a multi-layered masterpiece that blends political, commercial, scientific, religious and culinary records into a rich and memorable tale.
📒The Book Of Salt ✍ Monique Truong
📝The Book of Salt Book Synopsis : The Book of Salt serves up a wholly original take on Paris in the 1930s through the eyes of Binh, the Vietnamese cook employed by Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Viewing his famous mesdames and their entourage from the kitchen of their rue de Fleurus home, Binh observes their domestic entanglements while seeking his own place in the world. In a mesmerizing tale of yearning and betrayal, Monique Truong explores Paris from the salons of its artists to the dark nightlife of its outsiders and exiles. She takes us back to Binh's youthful servitude in Saigon under colonial rule, to his life as a galley hand at sea, to his brief, fateful encounters in Paris with Paul Robeson and the young Ho Chi Minh.

📒Pillar Of Salt ✍ Janice Haaken
📝Pillar of Salt Book Synopsis : Pillar of Salt introduces the controversy over recollections of childhood sexual abuse as the window onto a much broader field of ideas concerning memory, storytelling, and the psychology of women. The book moves beyond the poles of "true" and "false" memories to show how women's stories reveal layers of gendered and ambiguous meanings, spanning a wide historical, cultural, literary, and clinical landscape. The author offers the concept of transformative remembering as an alternative framework for looking back, one that makes use of fantasy in understanding the narrative truth of childhood recollections.Haaken provides an alternative reading of clinical material, showing how sexual storytelling transcends the symbolic and the "real" and how cultural repression of desire remains as problematic for women as the psychological legacy of trauma.

📒Salt ✍ Renée Ashley
📝Salt Book Synopsis : Renée Ashley describes Salt as an attempt, in part, to mythologize a period of the 1950s and early 1960s in the California Bay Area suburb where she grew up, "a racially rich, economically varied section of town east of El Camino Real--the major road and the 'tracks', so to speak, that one grew up on the right or wrong side of." Many of the poems in the collection explore Ashley's adjustment to the East Coast after a virtual lifetime in "that one place." They deal with landscape, with marriage, with the insight distance seems to lend to hindsight, with amusement, with regret. "Renée Ashley can tune our ears to the thoughts of a wounded sparrow, to the sibilance of snow on stone, even to the song rocks make as they thaw in spring. . . . She wakes us to an intricate, enthralling world behind, beneath, beyond the one we thought we knew, alive with particulars, laced with compassion, luminous with humor."--Donald Finkel

📒Salt Diet And Health ✍ G. A. MacGregor
📝Salt Diet and Health Book Synopsis : All animals need salt, but humans are the only animals that add extra salt to their food. The authors of this controversial book argue that the deliberate and often well-camouflaged addition of salt to processed foods has momentous health consequences, comparable to the well-documented risks of smoking tobacco. To equate salt consumption with smoking is a strong statement, but MacGregor and de Wardener provide a compelling and forceful account of complex issues relating to the perceptions of salt in society. The authors separate fact from fantasy and cast light on some of the hidden forces working to manipulate and exploit the consumer. The book presents what amounts to a scientific detective story that unravels with startling clarity the jumble of misinformation that has been concocted by the powerful vested interests of the multi- billion-dollar food industry. Along the way, the authors illuminate the rich history and mythology associated with salt, its symbolism, and its manifold socio-economic influences. The book is filled with an amusing and eclectic selection of historical and contemporary illustrations that lend context to this complex topic. Not only does this book have profound implications for the study of public health, but it also serves as an entertaining and instructive account of a part of our diet that is too easily taken for granted and ignored at our peril. Whether you agree or disagree with the authors, this will be fascinating and enlightening reading for all who are concerned with the mounting prevalence of salt in our diets.

📒Salt ✍ Isabel Zuber
📝Salt Book Synopsis : In this beautifully crafted debut novel, poet Isabel Zuber deftly traces the joys and the sorrows of a passionate but troubled marriage in Appalachia at the turn of the last century. Anna Stockton was a bright and imaginative child, reveling in a rare wild freedom in the mountains of western North Carolina. As a young woman possessed by romantic yearnings and a great love of books, she hungers for a new kind of life for herself. John Bayley is a hard-driven hill farmer who carries with him the pain of the early death of his father and the loss of two previous wives. When a sudden encounter brings the two together, Anna and John marry into a difficult and passionate union, one that mirrors the changing, sometimes violent, and often haunted times in which they live. Turning her jeweler's eye upon the members of a small rural community, Isabel Zuber weaves together the lives of John and Anna's family and friends in a deeply moving account of exultation and despair, of grief and ghosts. A novel worthy of the element that gives it its name—an emblem of work and sacrifice as well as of blessing and preservation—Salt is entrancing, piercingly honest fiction that gazes deeply into the human heart and yields the wisdom that such scrutiny brings.
