The Big Book of Farmall Tractors is thefirst book of feature every Farmall model. It chronicles the background of McCormick-Deering and International Harvester and outlines the beginnings of IH's production of the treasured Farmall tractor from its inception in 1923 (the lightweight, general purpose row-crop tractor that could literally farm all") until the last model rolled off the assembly line in the mid 1970s. Highlights include stories of the innovative spirit of the "McCormick Men," the battle with John Deere to produce the best-selling, most popular tractor, and the challenges IH faced when the 560 and 460 models failed in the field. This comprehensive volume also includes descriptions and hundreds of color photographs of all models, complete with performance comparisons (based on the University of Nebraska tests); chronicles the exciting beginnings of International Harvester; and places IH events in a larger historical context. But wait, there's more! The text is complemented by our "signature" variety of artwork: fabulous current color photographs, historic black-and-white images, period ads, brochures, and collectibles.

Das Omnivoren-Dilemma

Wie sich die Industrie der Lebensmittel bemächtigte und warum Essen so kompliziert wurde

Das Standardwerk über vernünftige Ernährung Der Mensch gehört von der Konsititution seiner Verdauungsorgane her zu den Omnivoren, den Allesfressern. Das war in der Evolution sicherlich nützlich. Doch das heutige Überangebot von Nahrungsmitteln in Supermärkten und Schnellrestaurants bringt nicht nur ihn selbst körperlich an den Rand des Abgrunds, sondern ruiniert auch noch seinen Lebensraum und sein soziales Umfeld. Mit Biss und investigativer Recherche sieht sich Pollan um, wie unsere Nahrungsmittel hergestellt und verarbeitet werden, vom Maisfeld über Cheeseburger mit Pommes bis zum Öko-Menü. Er öffnet uns die Augen für unser gestörtes Essverhalten und für den Weg zurück zu Einfachheit und Genuss.

Auch hundert Leben, sagt Claude Lanzmann, Autor des epochemachenden Films «Shoah», hätten nicht ausgereicht, seine Neugier auf das Leben zu stillen. Seine Autobiographie, literarisches Meisterwerk, Bestseller in Frankreich wie in Deutschland, ist vieles in einem: Erzählung eines überreichen Lebens, Bild jüdischer Geschichte, Traktat über Freiheit und Gewalt. Vor allem aber das faszinierende Dokument einer «amour fou» mit dem Leben. «Ein epochales Meisterwerk! ... Es beschwört das vergangene Jahrhundert mit unvergleichlicher suggestiver Kraft.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung) «Voller Tiefsinn, Humor und Leidenschaft.» (Der Spiegel) «Ein Monument des 20. Jahrhunderts.» (DIE ZEIT)
