They're afraid to sleep on the ground; they'd turn up their noses a the perfectly good food we've been eating—they live for those things, and they can't live
without them.'' This is an old theme, easy to romanticize, hard to exactly describe.

This sociological classic shows how the railroad tramp’s status as a deviant changed from frontier itinerant to post settlement vagrant; from class conscious proletariat in the Depression to the damaged post WWII vet. The third edition (with new photos) discusses how today the freights have become the milieu of violent gangs who transport drugs, human traffickers, and serial killers. Beating the odds against increased post 9/11 surveillance are yuppie adventure seekers, young travelers, crust punks and oogles. In the background is the same freight train—unforgiving and lethal—and cultures policed at times by honorable tramps and at times by sadistic enforcers of violent gangs. Features of the new edition: Eight previously unpublished photos that reflect new directions in visual ethnography. (90 photos altogether) A fuller integration of photos made during the author’s participant research with tramps over thousands of miles on the freights and while living homeless in urban America. New, nuanced edit of a narrative describing author’s five week immersion with the quintessential tramp of the era, Carl.

The New York Times has described James Martin as maybe "the only Jesuit priest with a degree from the Wharton School," and in the wake of our current economic crisis, the story of his remarkable journey from corporate America to the Society of Jesus couldn't be more timely. From the halls of General Electric under Jack Welch to his entry into the priesthood, In Good Company tells this seeker's powerful story with humor and grace. The book's gems of wisdom will appeal to anyone seeking meaning in daily life. Fast-paced, compelling, and often humorous, his story offers a fresh, inside look at corporate America, the Jesuit vocation, and the human quest for a life well-lived. This Tenth Anniversary Edition features a new preface by the author.

Publisher: Kua Bay Publishing LLC
Cook, restauranteur, grandmother and hostess par excellence, first-generation Italian-American Lucy Vallera Luhan brings to U.S. audiences a new approach to the art of creating physically, socially and emotionally healthy families and communities. For Italians, convivio refers to eating together at the table. Luhan comes from a tradition where most meals are nutritious. The concept of convivio is the antithesis of contemporary American attitudes toward food created and promoted by the fast food industry, attitudes that have led to a crisis of diet-related illnesses and social alienation. This book is a must-read for everyone who cares about the well-being of the individual, the family and the nation. A first-generation Italian-American, Lucy Vallera Luhan was born in Connecticut and raised in a household where traditional foods and values prevailed. She helped her extended family can fruits and vegetables grown in their own garden every summer, make their own wine every autumn, and prepare fresh pasta daily. Luhan's upbringing and passion for convivio led her to spend thirty-five years as a restaurateur in Southern California, and eventually inspired her to open Villa Lucia, a bed and breakfast/cooking school in Tuscany, Italy. She and her husband plan, in 2019, to spend more time in Abruzzo, Italy, the region of her ancestors. It is here where she first discovered her passion for authentic food, convivio, and a Mediterranean lifestyle.

This is more than a book of 'do's and don'ts' when in Italy: it is equivalent to the insider's Priviledge Card.
