This book on the crafting of chocolate in contemporary France is itself delicious. It will be a classic of French ethnography and contribute in important ways to the ongoing debate about the role of national identity in the European Union."—Carole L. Crumley, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill "A real pathbreaker. The intensity of Terrio's engagement with her respondents shines from almost every page. The work contributes to our understanding of the politics of heritage. . . . It is a thoroughly researched and descriptively rich analysis of how anthropologists can approach weighty problems of identity, national-local relations, and the ideology of self and other."—Michael Herzfeld, author of Portrait of a Greek Imagination

Discover the true story behind America’s first chocolate company, formed in pre-Revolutionary New England. In 1765, the story goes, Dr. James Baker of Dorchester, Massachusetts, stumbled upon a penniless Irish immigrant named John Hannon, who was crying on the banks of the mighty Neponset River. Hannon possessed the rare skills required to create chocolate—a delicacy exclusive to Europe—but had no way of putting this knowledge to use. Baker, with pockets bursting, wished to make a name for himself—and the two men would become America’s first manufacturers of this rich treat, using a mill powered by the same river upon which they met. Local historian Anthony Sammarco details the delicious saga of Massachusetts’s Baker Chocolate Company, from Hannon’s mysterious disappearance and the famed La Belle Chocolatiere advertising campaign to cacao bean smuggling sparked by Revolutionary War blockades. Both bitter and sweet, this tale is sure to tickle your taste buds.

In 1961, Julia Child introduced the American public to an entirely new, joy-infused approach to cooking and eating food. In doing so, she set in motion a food renaissance that is still in full bloom today. Over the last six decades, food has become an increasingly more diverse, prominent, and joyful point of cultural interest. The Joy of Eating discusses in detail the current golden age of food in contemporary American popular culture. Entries explore the proliferation of food-themed television shows, documentaries, and networks; the booming popularity of celebrity chefs; unusual, exotic, decadent, creative, and even mundane food trends; and cultural celebrations of food, such as in festivals and music. The volume provides depth and academic gravity by tying each entry into broader themes and larger contexts (in relation to a food-themed reality show, for example, discussing the show's popularity in direct relation to a significant economic event), providing a brief history behind popular foods and types of cuisines and tracing the evolution of our understanding of diet and nutrition, among other explications.

Kit Kat, Turkish Delight, Creme Egg, Rolo and All Gold: they are all as much a part of British life as were the companies that made them and which led the chocolate revolution in the nineteenth century: Rowntree's, Fry's, Cadbury's, Mackintosh and Terry's. This book charts the history of chocolate manufacture, marketing and consumption in Britain from its origins in the eighteenth century. It then describes the golden age from 1900 to the 1970s and the subsequent US and Swiss invasions, spearheaded by brands such as Mars, Toblerone and Nestlé's Milky Bar, including the takeovers by Nestle and Kraft.

“Holy cow, this better be a dream!” I yelled ... “Mom’s joke about summer camp follies in Africa has come true.” My adventure started with a nightmarish dream. People wore masks, talked in pidgin English, and performed witchcrafts. They behaved as though they were possessed by evil spirits. That reminded me of Dad’s stories about the Naked Devil Dancer who came out of the forest to perform at dusk. I took these as mere stories—fictitious legends—until now! A legend said that the Naked Devil Dancer—a barely clothed genie—wore different face masks and only a Speedo-type suit covering his private body parts. Often, his arrival was dramatic, with black birds, such as vultures and crows, flying overhead. In many cultures, these were signs of demons. Have you seen your Guardian Angel recently? Any angels at all? Well, angels aren’t just in Heaven; they’re everywhere! In The Sahara Desert Angel—the second book in this novel series, Crystal travels to Africa to see her extended family. As she learns about her culture and traditions in a remote village without running water or electricity, she is led to Aziza, and then to her mythical sister Cassandra. Crystal’s African journey further inspires her active, inquisitive mind when she uses her love of education and nature to uncover the origin of Africa’s biggest mystery. Readers will delight in the storytelling, knowledge, and eye-popping adventures.
